Diego Costa has revealed that he was concerned that he could not find the back of the net on time during Spans recent match that was played on Sunday October 12, 2014 during the match that ends 4-0 against.

The Brazil-born Chelsea striker has been in superb form for his club as he has evidently scored nine goals in his first seven Premier League appearances, but has appeared in his last six matches  with Spain and has no goal.

Costa however expressed his relief after his 26th shot at goal in a Spain shirt at last found the back of the net against Luxembourg, ending his six-game drought for Spain

He was quick to grant interview after the match as he told TVE how happy he was for being party of the victory, “I have to thank the coach for his support, every game he gave me another chance”.

“It was starting really bother me. It bothered me that I wasn’t scoring but what really bothered me that the team were losing. But this goal will give me a new start.”

His La Roja team mate, Del Bosque also expressed his relief that Costa has finally overcome the fear of draught by scoring a goal.

“We all wanted [Diego Costa to score]… at half-time I told him that he needed to stay calm. He was a little nervous, unhappy and unable to find a solution.

“We were always happy with his movement and he has worked hard. He’ll be very important in the future.”

Spain is second on the group table with three points behind group leaders Slovakia as they continue their Euro 2016 qualification match next month against host Belarus.
