When I saw Atletico play, Costa seems like more of an ariel/long ball kind of guy. He's big he's strong, that's his style. I kind of agree Spain's short passing game isn't the best for him and he doesn't really seem settled with it. He's a different kind of player from, say, David Villa who always looked so good in this setup.
I can see why it pisses of Brazilians so much he went with Spain though. Costa would be the perfect compliment guy for Neymar to throw a bit of everything at people. Much better than Fred as a sidekick. A bit of the ole' thunder and lightning.
Should have called him up at some point in the previous five years?
