Wolves winger Costa was in action for Portugal against Scotland away from home at Hampden Park in Glasgow in a friendly international on Sunday evening.
The 24-year-old former Benfica prospect scored in the 43rd minute to help Portugal to a comfortable 3-1 win.
It was Costa’s first game for Portugal, and his 30-year-old international teammate Eder, who won the Euro 2016 finals with his national side, was delighted for him.
Eder said about Costa on Sky Sports Football on Sunday evening (7:12pm, October 14, 2018): “It’s very good because he is a young talent and he has been improving a lot, and we need players like him and I am very happy for him.”
Costa joined Wolves on loan from Benfica in the summer of 2017 and made the move permanent in January 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £13 million.
During the 2017-18 campaign, the winger scored five goals and provided six assists in 21 league starts for the Wanderers, according to WhoScored.
