The Chelsea striker limped off against Hull City on Sunday and will miss Vincente Del Bosque's side's upcoming matches against Ukraine and Netherlands

Chelsea striker Diego Costa will return to the club from international duty with Spain to receive treatment on the hamstring injury he suffered at the weekend.

Costa left for Spain's training camp following Sunday's 3-2 win at Hull City in which he appeared to tweak his troublesome hamstring after scoring Chelsea's second goal.

However, the former Atletico Madrid man has been diagnosed with a grade one hamstring tear and will miss Spain's clashes with Ukraine and the Netherlands.

A statement from the Spanish Football Association read: "The striker suffered a grade one hamstring injury on his left thigh, as noted by the doctors at his club, and the doctors of the RFEF recommend that he does not participate in the next games against Ukraine and the Netherlands.

"Diego Costa returns to Chelsea where he will receive the appropriate treatment."
