Begovic has been linked with a move away from the Britannia Stadium in recent years and admits the biggest stage of all in Brazil will not do his profile any harm.

But the 26-year-old insists he is happy at Stoke - where he has two years left to run on his contract - and believes the team have made progress under Mark Hughes this season.

Begovic told Sky Sports News' Weekend Warm-up programme: "It's a good place to be, it's an exciting place to be. We are trying to push forward.

"I have two years left on my contract and I am committed to the cause and am very settled where I am.

"I have big things coming up in the summer so I haven't really thought too much about the future.

"It's very flattering to hear big clubs and great names in the game talk and say nice things about you. I just try to focus and work hard every day, show respect to my club, my employer and do my best for Stoke.

"The World Cup is a big shop window for everyone but the most important thing is to do yourself proud and do your country proud and that's the main thing I will be focusing on.

"It's our first major tournament and there is no pressure on us. We will try to just go there and enjoy the whole experience and make sure we use it as a great experience to get better and qualify for major tournaments again."

Hughes took over from Tony Pulis last summer and he could guide Stoke into ninth place in the final Premier League table - their highest ever finish in the competition - with a win over the Baggies at The Hawthorns on Sunday.

Begovic added: "From the first day he walked in, we have tried to do new things and play a different way - it was always going to take time, it was a work in progress.

"As the season has gone on we have got better. We are still trying to do the right thing, which is the most important thing.

"We have had a great season overall, have really enjoyed it and hopefully next season we can push on."
