IkerCasillas is out of Real Madrid but he will remain active with Spain

A few weeks ago IkerCasillas was released from Real Madrid as he joined the Portuguese side Porto after penning a 2 year long deal. This switch ended the relationship that Casillas had with Real Madrid which extended for over 24 years.

Even though IkerCasillas was offloaded away from his childhood club, the coach of the Spanish national side Vicente del Bosque has stepped up and supported IkerCasillas as the coach said that the experienced goal-keeper will continue to play a big role with his country in the international stage.

Spain is positioned in the 2nd spot of Group C and so far IkerCasillas has been the main man in between the sticks as he has played in almost all the group stages matches of the 2016 Euro’s.

Spain’s Vicente del Bosque said: “He had worse moments last season and played almost every match for Spain hasn’t caused any problems and has been a great servant to the national team”.

The main problem that IkerCasillas will face with trying to find a regular spot in the Spanish national side will be David de Gea as his Spanish counterpart continues playing at a high level and the younger shot-stopper took center stage in Spain’s qualification match against Luxembourg as IkerCasillas was dropped to the bench.

Diego Costa in the Chelsea starting line-up once again this season looks highly unlikely

The possibility of featuring Diego Costa in the Chelsea starting line-up once again this season looks highly unlikely after the striker hobbled off with yet another hamstring injury in the 2-1 win over Stoke City.

Costa was brought onto the pitch at half-time as the team searched for a winner. It was going to be a gamble by manager Jose Mourinho, who knew that the striker was not 100% just yet. Costa suffered a hamstring injury during the club’s recent 3-2 success over Hull City. Since this injury came only two weeks ago, it would have been touch and go to use the striker against Stoke City.

Just over 10 minutes after being brought onto the field to help the club get a winner, Costa suffered a hamstring injury and it appeared to be much worse than the one he had against Hull. This has raised suspicions that the 26-year-old may miss the rest of the campaign. Mourinho has confirmed that the striker has suffered a reappearance of the injury and that he may miss a few weeks of action. After being knocked out of all the cup competitions, Chelsea only have the league to focus between now and the end of the campaign. Costa is certainly ruled out of the upcoming matches against QPR and Manchester United. Continue reading →
