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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
