Liverpool fullback Aly Cissokho retains hope of winning a place in France's World Cup squad.

Cissokho is on-loan at Liverpool from Valencia.

"The World Cup is something special. Patrice Evra leads, then it will take a second player to replace him. Gaël (Clichy) is often called. But hey, you never know.

"I'm staying focused in matches and training, being careful not to hurt myself. I can show the coach that I can be useful. I believe I can do it, of course I do."
