The Bosnians will feature in their first ever major tournament in 2014, having qualified for football's most prestigious competition as Group G winners in the European zone.

Begovic, who is rated as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League following his performances for Stoke City since 2010, believes that his side will leave their mark in South American next year,

"Our success is already guaranteed with a trip to Brazil," he told SportSport.

"But believe me, we're not going there for recreational purposes, we are going to play, to fight for our country and we will try to achieve the best possible result.

"I hope everybody will be fit for the World Cup. If so, then everything will be possible in Brazil."

Meanwhile, Sead Kolasinac has received clearance from FIFA to play for Bosnia at senior international level.

The 20-year-old, who was born in Karlsruhe, has played for Germany at the Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 levels, but he will now represent the country of his parents.

"For us it is a great thing that we got such a player," Bosnoa coach Safet Susic told Agencija Fena. "I'm familiar with his abilities.

"He also plays regularly for Schalke, which tells a lot about him. He will probably made his debut in friendly against Argentina.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
