“The possibility of Spain emerged, and I accepted. How could I say no?”

“Suddenly, they started saying Scolari wanted me. Well, he never called me once. How could it be that he wanted me?”

“I then saw it written that I had ruined the dreams of millions of Brazilians. Why not say that he didn’t look for me? Then it’s simple.”

The hot-heated Costa has been playing for the NT of Spain since then.
