June 16, 2018 at 03:19 GMT +00:00 · Published

Spanish footballer Diego Costa called the game against Portugal a "beautiful match for fans to watch" while speaking to the press after the game in Sochi on Friday.

"Thank god I was fortunate to score two goals, it was a beautiful match for the fans to watch, with a lot of goals, but it wasn't the result we wanted," Costa said.

Costa also had some praise for the performance of Portuguese player Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a hat trick for Portugal and made the game a draw with five minutes on the clock.

"A player such as him [Ronaldo] will always make the difference, him, Neymar, Messi are players who can change the match in a matter of seconds," Costa said.

Portugal came back against Spain in a thrilling draw for their Group B opener with a score of 3-3 at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi.
