The Chelsea forward is unhappy with his

international goal tally and believes he has a lot

of room for improvement for La Roja

Diego Costa has acknowledged that he has

been struggling to find his best form for Spain

and is desperate to score more goals for the

national team.

The 26-year-old has netted just once for the

reigning European champions since making

his debut in the 1-0 friendly win over Italy in

March 2014 and has received considerable

criticism for his lack of goals.

Costa once more failed to find the net in Spain's

1-0 Euro 2016 qualification win over Macedonia

on Tuesday and he has now admitted he must

do better.

"I’ve got a lot to improve and I’ve got to start

scoring goals," the Chelsea star was quoted as

saying by AS.

"There will be no lack of effort on my part. I'll

keep working hard at my club to improve.

"I am always filled with ambition whenever I get

called for the national team.

"On a personal level I am not happy because I

didn't manage to score against

Macedonia, although I'm happy with the victory.

We’ve gained three points which are important

for our qualification."

The striker picked up a yellow card in midweek

which rules him out of the match against

Luxembourg due to suspension, much to his

own surprise.

"Am I suspended against Luxembourg? It’s the

first I’ve heard about it...," he added

Costa's only goal for Spain came in the 4-0 win

over Luxembourg in October 2014.
