Brazil coach Scolari blasts Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa for Spain choice

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has blasted Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa for committing himself to Spain.

Scolari has claimed that Diego Costa has "turned his back on the dreams of millions" of his fellow Brazilians by choosing to play for Spain.

"A Brazilian who turns down the chance to wear the Brazil shirt and play in a World Cup in his own country automatically forfeits his place", Scolari stated.
