I’m not sure how happy Arsene Wenger will be about this but both Abou Diaby and Denilson have been talking up how much they’d love to play in next year’s World Cup in South Africa.
In-form Diaby has said making the World Cup is a big aim of his and he will “do everything to be part of that” while Denilson declared that it would be his “dream to play in the World Cup for Brazil”.
While I’m sure every Arsenal supporter – most of all the manager – would like the pair to be focused on the current season and not the World Cup, it’s good to hear the pair stating their ambitions. It shows they are stepping up as players and expecting to achieve more than they have which to me suggests their confidence is up and they’re beginning to fulfill their potential.
I have tickets to both Brazil vs Portugal and a Round of 16 match featuring France’s group so personally I’d love to see them play in South Africa.
But will they make it?
