Mathew: Daddy wanted me to play for Croatia
Posted April 7, 2007on:
Spiranovic as we all know already made up his mind to play for the Australian national team. But his father told the press that he would of liked to see his son play for the Croatian national team instead.
Mathews father is a Croatian who moved to the land down under long time ago. And now he wants his son to play for the mother land of Croatia. But Mathew Spiranvic already decided long time ago that he wanted to play for Australia. It is sad when you see Croatians refuse to play for the National team, but Spiranovic didn’t fit the category of a Croatian player anyways. He doesn’t speak Croatian very well, not that it matters since Eduardo Da Silva came to Croatia when he was 16 from Brazil not speaking a word of the Croatian language. Mathew lacks the Croatian pride which wouldn’t allow him to play like other Croatians on the national team. The Croatian team is very team oriented and Mathew would have a hard time adapting to play for and with the Croats.
