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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
