Chelsea star Oscar is determined to return to Stamford Bridge with the FIFA Club World Cup trophy.

The Blues kick off their tournament at the semi-final stage against Mexican outfit Monterrey on Thursday.

If victorious the Champions League winners will face either Egypt's Al Ahly or Brazil's Corinthians in next Sunday's final at the International Stadium in Yokohama, Japan.

Oscar has insisted that despite the mid-season timing and location of the tournament, Chelsea will be putting in every effort to join Manchester United as the second English winner of the tournament.

The 21-year-old told World Soccer Digest: "For Chelsea, we are representing Europe and we are going there with a determination to do it well.

"We are going to try to win this competition this year. Every title is important for Chelsea. If we win it, it is going to give us so much more confidence and strength for the rest of the season."

This year will mark Oscar's second taste of the Club World Cup, after previously failing to reach the final with Internacional in 2010 following defeat in the semi-finals to African side TP Mazembe.

The Brazil international believes this disappointment will help spur him on to the challenge of making Chelsea world champions.

Oscar concluded: "We were all expecting to get to the final and it was such a big surprise when we lost. I'm pleased to have this second opportunity."
