International

Costa played twice for Brazil in friendly matches in 2013, but was granted Spanish citizenship in September of the same year and thereafter chose to represent his adopted country. He made his debut for Spain in March 2014, and was selected in the squad for that summer's FIFA World Cup squad. He and Spain suffered a disappointing tournament, making a shock exit at the group stage.
