[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Diego Costa, the Brazilian who plans to play for Spain, scored his 14th goal in 14 La Liga games with a sweet overhead volley.

Back from injury, Costa came off the bench in the 64th minute and struck with this beauty five minutes later for Atletico Madrid in a 7-0 win over Getafe.

The 25-year-old, who moved to Spain in 2007, got Spanish citizenship last summer and announced his intentions to play for La Roja, prompting an angry response from Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.
