Former Arsenal striker Eduardo da Silva has stated that he is extremely happy with the result achieved by the Croatians against Cameroon in the World Cup 2014 group stages. Despite being in a group containing hosts Brazil, Croatia have done well up until this point. They lost in the opening match against Brazil 3-1, but this match was littered with several controversial decisions including a penalty for the hosts. Croatia then came back in stunning fashion to register 4-0 win over Cameroon in the next group match.

Croatia’s coach Niko Kovac has announced his provisional squad for the upcoming World Cup which includes: Luka Modric, Mario Mandzukic and Eduardo as some of the standout players of the team.
Shakhtar Donetsk’s Eduardo is a Brazilian forward who plays for Croatia after picking up a Croatian citizenship in 2002 and he has expressed his emotions about making his World Cup debut in his native country of Brazil.
“Accepting the invitation to play for Croatia was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. But I never could have imagined that I, as a Brazilian, could be given a chance to play in the World Cup opener. In football, the impossible becomes possible.” Eduardo said.
