WTF! Ex-Arsenal man Eduardo da Silva will sing both the Croatian & Brazilian national anthems in the WC opener

In less than a week the 2014 World Cup will kick off with host nation Brazil taking on Croatia in the opening game of the tournament.

The match will be an emotional occasion for former Arsenal man Eduardo da Silva who was born in Brazil but has played his international football for Croatia.

The ex-Gunners’ family have now revealed that Eduardo intends to sing both the Croatian and Brazilian national anthems in the World Cup opener.

According to the player’s mother, Eduardo is a “Croatian for work”, but he remains Brazilian in his heart.

All this goes to show just how screwed up international football can get with naturalised players becoming a thing of the norm in the modern game.

Eduadro, 31, has scored  29 goals in 63 games for Croatia.
