Milan Rapaic

Date of birth16 August 1973
Place of birthSplit
NationalityCroatian
PositionMidfielder

A powerful striker, Milan struggled to establish himself as the creative force in Perugia's attack following the sale of Japan's Hidetoshi Nakata to AS Roma. He subsequently moved to Fenerbahce in 2000, winning the Turkish championship in his first season with the Istanbul club. He was linked with a return to Perugia, with Internazionale and Fiorentina as well as a number of English clubs expressing their interest. Fener president Aziz Yildirim said he was for sale, but for no less than £7million. Milan's hopes of going to Japan and South Korea seemed unlikely following a rift with coach Mirko Jozic, but the duo have since stated that they have settled their differences. Much stronger on his left foot, on his day he is a lethal finisher.

Milan scored Croatia's winner in their surprise 2-1 Group G defeat of Italy in Ibaraki.
