Edin Dzeko: World Cup aim

Dzeko is looking forward to the challenge his country could face in Brazil at the 2014 World Cup and he says he cannot wait for the tournament.

The Manchester City striker said: "If we would play at the World Cup, that would be the most important thing in my career.

"I heard that 90% of Bosnians are ready to ask banks for a loan so they can cheer for us in Brazil. It's unbelievable how much this means to our people.

"I also dream about the World Cup. I would swap all the titles for the World Cup."

Dzeko also said that he misses friends while playing in England for Manchester City. He added: "It is true, in Manchester I miss my five, ten best mates from Sarajevo.

"I miss them really much. In England I spend most of my time with Aleksander Kolarov and Matija Nastasic and once in a while I go out with Everton forward Nikica Jelavic. There is not a lot of 'our' people in England."
