Diego Costa made up for the disappointment of his non-inclusion in the Spain squad by scoring twice as Atletico Madrid made it eight wins from eight league games with a 2-1 victory over Celta Vigo.

The Brazilian-born striker was not included in Vicente del Bosque's squad on Friday as the paperwork that will make him eligible for the world champions was not completed in time.

However, he again made his case for a future call up with another two strikes to take him top of the La Liga scoring charts with 10 goals, two ahead of Lionel Messi.
