Mladen Petric: West Ham striker hoping for Croatia call

Croatia look set to finish second in Group A of the qualifying section, meaning they will then go into a play-off for a place in Brazil.

And Petric is hoping to be involved, having returned to first-team action with West Ham earlier this month.

Petric missed out on the previous national squads, but he puts that down to being a free agent at the time after he left Fulham.

"I definitely want to go to Brazil," he told T-portal.

"I didn't play for Croatia in their last matches just because I didn't have a club.

"But national team coach Igor Stimac has assured me that I would be part of the team if I'm going to play for my club."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
