Croatia´s Olic targets victory over Serbia

13 August 2012 14:30

Ivica Olic is confident Croatia will beat fierce rivals Serbia in their qualification campaign for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Igor Stimac's Croatia side were paired with their neighbours, as well as Belgium, Scotland, Wales and Macedonia in the race to reach the tournament, and Wolfsburg striker Olic has little doubt his team will make it to the next World Cup in Brazil.

"Serbia are obviously very tough opponents. But ... it makes the players even more motivated. It's more than just a game of football," Olic told the FIFA website.

"I personally know a number of Serbian players and have very good friends there. At the end of the day, I hope the football makes the headlines.

"May the better team win - that is what I would like to see. I think we will finish ahead of Serbia, and I think we will beat them."

"But if Serbia make it instead, I will congratulate them. In my opinion, both teams have the quality to make the World Cup. That would be ideal."

Croatia host Serbia on March 13 2013, with the return taking place on September 6.
