Goran's Brazil nuts
Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).
If all had gone to plan, Goran Bunjevcevic would have been in Brazil this week.
Unfortunately, the defender will be continuing his battle for fitness at Spurs Lodge rather than joining his Yugoslavian team-mates for the friendly against the glamour team of world football.
It's been a frustrating first season in the Premiership for Goran.
Laid low initially by a freak clash with Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink that fractured his cheek in September, a series of niggling injuries have restricted him to just three games since.
Naturally, that has kept him out of the international scene as well.
"Of course I miss my national team," admitted Goran.
"This is not such an important game but it will be special for the players to go and play against Brazil, one of the best teams in the world.
"I miss that but it is more important to be fit for the games against Wales, Finland, Italy in the European Championships. That is what I am chasing now."
First he is chasing a return to action at Spurs before the end of the season and building towards next term.
He pondered: "I have tasted just a little and I know how good it can be.
"We played well earlier in the season, the manager and the staff were named manager of the month, we were unlucky in the cup final.
"It's good the club has enjoyed quite a good season. It is a year with the manager and the supporters and everyone hope we can move on again next season."
