The Career of Diogo Costa

Costa moved to Santo Tirso at the age of seven after being born in Rothrist, Canton of Aargau, to Portuguese parents.

From Casa do Benfica de Póvoa de Lanhoso, he joined FC Porto’s academy in 2011.

Costa made his LigaPro debut with the reserve squad on August 6, 2017, in a 1–2 loss at home to Gil Vicente.

He added 31 appearances to his season total, aiding the team to a seventh-place finish, and on May 15, he extended his contract until June 2022.

He was voted the club’s Newcomer of the Year in September; late that year, Spaniard Iker Casillas, who began for the first team, lavished praise on him, referring to him as his “successor.”

Costa and Porto won the 2018–19 UEFA Youth League, defeating Chelsea 3–1 in the final on April 29 in Nyon, Switzerland.

After Casillas suffered a heart attack a few days later, Vaná took over as the starter, and Costa was called up to the bench for the final three games of the season, beginning with a 4–0 win over Desportivo das Aves on 4 May.

Costa made his first-team debut on September 25, 2019, in the Taça da Liga’s first group match, keeping a clean sheet in a 1–0 home victory against Santa Clara.

Costa acquired Porto’s 99 shirts, made famous by goalkeeper and club icon Vtor Baa, before the start of the 2020–21 season.

Marchesn’s backup, he only played in one league game before making his Champions League debut on December 9, 2020, keeping a clean sheet in a 2–0 group stage win against Olympiakos.

He won 25% of the vote for Goalkeeper of the Month in September 2021, while Odysseas Vlachodimos of Benfica received 22%.

He agreed to a contract extension until 2026 on October 16th, raising his buyout clause from €30 million to €60 million.

Costa started every match for Portugal in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship in 2016.

He stopped Manu Morlanes’ penalty attempt in the final against Spain, enabling his nation to win the event for the sixth time with a 5–4 penalty shoot-out triumph after a 1–1 tie.

He played four out of five matches for the under-19s at the 2017 European Championship, where they lost in the final against England.  He played in all of the matches for his country in the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup, resulting in a quarter-final exit.

Costa played four of Portugal’s five matches at the UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Finland in July 2018, helping the team win the championship for the first time, but was forced to withdraw from the final due to a muscle injury.

Costa made his senior squad debut on August 26, 2021, for 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifications against the Republic of Ireland and Azerbaijan, as well as a friendly against Qatar.
