Chelsea striker Diego Costa: Mourinho and Del Bosque will be fine

Chelsea striker Diego Costa hopes to make Spain's squad this week.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho wants Costa to rest his troubling hamstring.

"I don't think that will happen," he replied when asked about the possibility of a bust-up between Mourinho and Spain coach Vicente del Bosque.

"I had enough problems with the Brazil palaver. Now I need some peace of mind so I can work hard and perform, and that goes for the national team too.

"I really do need that ... Hopefully I'll be fit to play for Spain."
