Diego Costa back with Spain

MADRID (AP) -- Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been recalled by Spain coach Vicente del Bosque for matches against Ukraine and the Netherlands this month.

The Brazil-born striker missed games against Belarus and Germany last November because of a hamstring injury.

Costa will be joined by Chelsea teammate Cesc Fabregas, Manchester City playmaker David Silva, and Barcelona's Andres Iniesta.

Del Bosque called up two new players for the Euro 2016 qualifier against Ukraine in Seville on March 27: Sevilla winger Vitolo and Villarreal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo.

After hosting Ukraine, Spain travels to the Netherlands for a friendly.
