Adrian Mierzejewski won't rule out World Cup call-up for Poland

He admits it's probably a long shot but Sydney FC star Adrian Mierzejewski is still harbouring dreams of a World Cup call-up for Poland.

The 31-year-old has lit up the A-League this season, scoring 12 goals and laying on seven assists in 18 games for Graham Arnold's all-conquering side to shoot into Johnny Warren Medal favouritism.

His hot form is making news back home in Poland, raising the possibility of a return to the international arena for the first time since October 2013.

If it happened, he would become just the second player from outside Australia or New Zealand to have been selected for a World Cup while playing for an A-League club.

Dwight Yorke captained Trinidad and Tobago at Germany 2006 after a season with the Sky Blues but nobody has done it since.

Mierzejewski hasn't always been willing to talk about his World Cup chances -- the last time he was asked by Fox Sports, he abruptly responded: "Next question, please."

But speaking to the A-League website, he said a World Cup appearance -- one of the few tournaments missing from his resume -- was squarely on his mind.

Adrian Mierzejewski has lit up the A-League since joining Sydney FC.

"The coach has his team. I think there are maybe two or three spots still open," Mierzejewski said.

"Maybe I am on the list but this list must be very long.

"I still dream about it. Maybe I will get a chance but realistically I am 31 now and I know maybe it will not come.

"I am happy with my CV -- I played in the Champions League, Europa League and European Championships.

"This World Cup would be perfect but let's see. Not everything depends on me."

Poland have been drawn in a tough Group H alongside Senegal, Colombia and Japan.

It is the country's first World Cup since 2006.
