Rakitic and Modric feature in Croatia's final World Cup squad

AS AS 31/05/2014 EFE

La Liga midfielders Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric are part of the final 23-man World Cup squad named by Croatia coach Niko Kovac on Saturday.

Together with the young attacking midfielder Mateo Kovacic, Real Madrid’s Modric and Sevilla captain Rakitic make up the core of a Croatia side aiming to emerge from a group also including Brazil, Mexico and Cameroon.

“We have a huge desire for success and we’re going to the World Cup to get a great result,” Rakitic told the Croatian media this week.

Kovac announced his squad for Brazil 2014 in the wake of his team’s 2-1 win over Mali in Osijek.

Injured trio Niko Kranjcar, Ivan Strinic and Ivo Ilicevic dropped out of Kovac’s provisional group of 30, with Igor Bubnjic, Mario Pasalic, Milan Badelj and Duje Cop also missing out.

Croatia take on hosts Brazil in the tournament opener in Sao Paulo on 12 June.
