- WATCH: Costa scores superb goal vs. Portugal in World Cup opener
Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa has just scored the luckiest goal you’re likely to see at this year’s World Cup.
The Spaniard found the back of the net on two occasions against Portugal in the opening group game. The first goal in particular was superb and scored as a result of Costa’s resilience and doggish nature.
There’s no sprinkle of star quality in this latest one of Costa’s goals – it’s an incredible stroke of luck. The ball rebounds off Costa’s shin and into the back of the net, but they all count!
Costa is now trailing only Cristiano Ronaldo in the race to win the World Cup Golden Boot. Russia’s former Real Madrid man Denis Cheryshev has also scored three.
