Former Robin At The World Cup?

14 May 2014

A former Cheltenham Town loanee could be making an appearance at the World Cup this summer.

The 2014 Brazil World Cup kicks off in just under a month and there may well be a former Robin competing in the global tournament.

Oliver Bozanic, 25, has been called up to Australia's 30-man preliminary squad by Socceroo manager Ange Pastecoglou to compete in Brazil. The final 23 man squad will be named on the 2nd of June and Bozanic will no doubt be desperate to feature.

The Sydney-born midfielder had a loan spell with the Robins back in 2009 but a knee injury limited him to just 4 appearances in three months for the club who, at the time, were managed by Martin Allen. A loan spell at Aldershot followed for Bozanic before he departed Reading and re-joined Central Coast Mariners in Australia, a club where he had spent some of his youth career before moving to England.

In 2013 he linked up with FC Luzern in Switzerland to play in the Swiss Super League. He has won 2 caps in total for Australia and has of course featured for Australia's U20 and U23 squads on numerous occasions.

Of course Oliver hasn't made it into Australia's World Cup squad just yet, but fingers crossed we'll be seeing a former Robin in Brazil this summer.
