Franjic previews World Cup Group A

With Australia set to face Croatia in their final international hit-out before their first Group B match, Socceroo defender Ivan Franjic has cast his eye over Croatia’s group.

Group A features the hosts Brazil, Cameroon, Mexico and the Croatians.

The battle for second spot will be fierce with Brazil favoured to go through as the top team.

“Brazil are definitely under pressure but are the favourites,” said Franjic.

“Neymar is obviously world class but they have quality players all-round.”

The Socceroo, who has Croatian heritage, hailed the quality of Croatia’s players but added that Cameroon are always be difficult to play while Mexico will have strong support in Brazil.

“I’m tipping Brazil and Croatia to go through,” added the Roar full back.
