Iran Defender Accuses Diego Costa Of Doing Something Pretty Nasty During World Cup Clash
Diego Costa's sh*thousery peaked at new levels against Iran.
The ex-Chelsea star has started brilliantly for Spain at the World Cup. He's already weighed in with three goals, including a brace against Spain not to mention the match winner against Iran.
The Asian minnows frustrated their Spanish counterparts for large parts of the game with Costa eventually breaking the deadlock courtesy of a fortunate goal shortly after the restart.
And it's not just his goal which has attracted headlines.
Iran defender Morteza Pouraliganj has detailed his encounter with the fiery striker, and it doesn't paint a good picture for Costa who's been accused of insulting Pouraliganji's family.
"He looked at me and insulted my mother and my sister," he said via Tehran Times.

Pouraliganj added: "Costa started insulting me after 10 minutes. He wanted to make me angry but I kept my cool.
"I don't know why he was selected as the Man of the Match because he touched the ball just for five times and accidentally scored a goal."
"We will do our best to beat Portugal but we have to see what happens," he added about Iran's chances of advancing to the next round.
We all know Costa has a reputation for being a hot-headed individual. But has he stepped over the line by abusing his family?
