Spain's Sergio Ramos and reported Chelsea striker-to-be Diego Costa challenged one another to a friendly cross bar challenge on Friday.

Spanish internationals Sergio Ramos and Diego Costa locked horns on Friday as the duo challenged one another to a cross-bar challenge.

La Roja are currently preparing for the summer World Cup in the USA. Vicente del Bosque’s 23-man squad travelled to the States on Monday, before conducting a training camp in Washington DC.

With only a matter of days to go for the start of the tournament, Spain will play their final friendly against El Salvador this evening.

The Real Madrid defender and Chelsea striker-to-be took a break from the side’s title defence preparations in order to test their accuracy from distance.

Costa failed to strike the bar, while his international teammate emerged victorious with two successful attempts. Not bad for a defender!  But as for Costa, well, he could just argue he is paid to hit the net rather than the woodwork.

How will the Spaniards fare in Brazil?
