Diego Costa looked like a misfit at the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, where Spain's inability to accommodate the burly center-forward contributed to their disastrous campaign.Spain had edged in front by that point thanks to Nacho's sweet strike but Costa could only watch from the bench as Ronaldo's free-kick completed his hat-trick and ensured a share of the spoils.Things did not click for Costa in 2014 .Costa appears certain to keep his place for Spain's second Group B game against Iran in Kazan on Wednesday.
