Santi Cazorla has admitted that he cannot wait for the 2014 World Cup to roll around.
The Arsenal playmaker was not part of Spain’s 2010 triumph in South Africa due to injury but is now determined to be a part of Vicente del Bosque’s squad in Brazil next summer.
The former Malaga star told Arsenal Player : “World Cup 2014 has an extra meaning for me,”.
“Unfortunately I couldn’t play in 2010 due to a back injury.
“Spain ended up lifting the trophy and not being part of that is still at the back of my mind.
“There’s nothing like playing in the World Cup and representing your country.
“I hope I can experience that and I hope the Spanish national team can bring a bit of happiness to the country.
“Spain is going through a difficult period (economically) and football is way of escape for many Spaniards. I hope we can bring home the trophy.”
