He has had many clubs in his long career playing in Slovenia, Croatia, Switzerland, Belgium and England. He rises to the big occasion and despite making his debut in November 1993 against Slovakia he has only just past the 50-cap mark. He scored the deflected goal that took the team to the European Championship Finals in 2000 and a spectacular volley to take the team to the World Cup Finals.
