SAO PAULO - Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says Diego Costa shouldn't be allowed to play for Spain and refuses to give up his right to select the striker for Brazil's national team.

Scolari says he's the "only one who can have a say about whether the athlete will be picked" for Brazil ahead of next year's World Cup. The coach added it's his "right to choose" the player, not Spain's.

Scolari told Globo TV on Sunday that Diego Costa shouldn't have the option to play for another country because he already played two friendly matches with Brazil this year.

The Brazilian-born player holds a Spanish passport and has never played an official match for Brazil, so FIFA would allow him to play for Spain.
