Luka right behind WC Spurs

Luka Modric will be willing on his Spurs team-mates at the World Cup.

The Croatian playmaker and one of the stars of our fourth place finish last season, Luka missed out on South Africa when Croatia finished third in European qualifying Group Six behind England and Ukraine.

We have 10 players at football's showpiece tournament- Ledley King, Michael Dawson, Aaron Lennon, Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe with England. Sebastien Bassong and Benoit Assou-Ekotto with Cameroon, Wilson Palacios with Honduras, Heurelho Gomes with Brazil and Giovani, who will kick-off the event with Mexico against South Africa on Friday.

"Ledley, Daws, Azza, Crouchy, JD - because of that I would like to see England go far in the tournament," said Luka.

"It's the same with Wilson, Gomes, Gio and Seb and Benoit with Cameroon. I'd love to see them all do well.

"I do think England have a good chance. They have a strong squad. It's hard to say though. England have to be one of the favourites with Spain and perhaps Argentina, plus Brazil. Four of five teams have a chance to win it."
