NYRB star De Rosario still eyeing World Cup with Canada

New York Red Bulls midfielder Dwayne De Rosario says that he still wants to achieve one of his goals of playing in the World Cup.

The 33-year old Canada international is currently preparing for this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup with the national squad and has admitted that he sees the 2014 World Cup in Brazil as a realistic target for FIFA's 75th-ranked team.

"I've had that feeling (of urgency) from a long time ago, that's one of my dreams, to make the World Cup," De Rosario said. "We really think we have the team."

De Rosario said that it was vital that the likes of Simeon Jackson at Norwich City, Jaime Peters at Ipswich Town and Atiba Hutchinson at PSV Eindhoven were getting regular game time at club level.

"That's very important for a national program going forward - guys not only playing for good clubs, but playing. That's going to help us tremendously," he added.

"All the Canadian guys that are there doing well, we're very proud, 100 per cent. They're living their dreams, and a lot of them are living our dreams that we had as well."
