Diego Costa should be fine for World Cup after horrific clash with post
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has allayed fears over the severity of the injury suffered by striker Diego Costa in Sunday's 2-0 derby victory at Getafe, which moved Los Rojiblancos a step closer to the Primera Division title.
The 25-year-old Brazil-born forward suffered a worrying-looking injury after colliding with a post in scoring his side's second goal and left the field on a stretcher, but Atletico moved quickly to play down concerns it could be anything serious.
"Luckily, Diego Costa only has a wound after hitting the post," the club posted on Twitter.
And Simeone said at his post-match press conference: "He is happy and well . One more cut does not do anything to this tiger."
