Diego Costa missed four matches earlier in the season with a hamstring injury combined with a viral infection.

Chelsea's Diego Costa will miss Spain's Euro 2016 qualifier against Ukraine and a friendly with the Netherlands after picking up a hamstring injury.

The striker, 26, sustained the injury during Chelsea's 3-2 win at Hull on Sunday.

Costa, who scored his 20th goal of the season, was replaced by Loic Remy with 15 minutes remaining.

The Spanish Football Federation said Costa will return to Chelsea for medical treatment.

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has called up Malaga's 21-year-old striker Juanmi as cover for Costa.
