#3 Diego Costa (Spain)

Spain v Morocco: Group B - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia
A fantastic brace against Portugal has earned Costa some attention in the tournament

Despite the number of world-class strikers in the World Cup this year, Atletico Madrid sharpshooter Diego Costa managed to announce himself on the big stage, with his incredible performances in front of goal.

It took him just 24 minutes to score his first goal of the tournament, firing a cool finish to beat Portugal's goalkeeper, Rui Patricio. He scored again in the 55th minute as Spain earned a 3-3 draw against the European champions.

His third goal in the tournament came up against Morocco as the striker scored the only goal of the match to secure the first victory for his nation in Russia. This implies that he has scored 3 goals in 3 matches in the World Cup, averaging a goal in every game.

With plenty of matches still left to be played, Costa could go a long way to become the superstar of the tournament.
