World Cup the aim for Monaco man Vieri

MONACO, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Italy striker Christian Vieri joined Monaco on Wednesday and said his goal was to win a place at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

'Going to the World Cup is an objective and in order to do that I need to play matches,' Vieri told a news conference after signing an 18-month contract for an undisclosed transfer fee.

Vieri, joining from AC Milan, will be paired up front with fellow Italy striker Marco Di Vaio who agreed a loan move from Valencia last month.

The 32-year-old Vieri joined Milan from city rivals Inter last summer on a two-year deal but struggled to win a regular place in the team.

He has scored only two goals this season, the last in a 3-1 win over Brescia in an Italian Cup match at the end of November.

'The most important thing for me is to play on a regular basis,' he said.

Before matches later on Wednesday, Monaco were eighth in the Ligue 1 standings, 16 points behind leaders Olympique Lyon and four below second-placed Auxerre.

'We expect a lot from him (Vieri),' said Monaco president Michel Pastor. 'We're happy to have him and we hope he will help us reach our goal, which is to qualify for the Champions League'.
