PositionForward

This experienced striker began his career at Olympija Ljubljana in 1993 before brief spells at Rijeka in Croatia in 1997 and Hapoel Tel Aviv in 1998 before returning and he finished the 2000-2001 season as leading scorer for Olimpija with an impressive tally of 19 goals, earning him a transfer to Serie A club Lecce in the summer.

He made his debut for Slovenia against Poland back in February 1998 but was only during the recent World Cup qualifying campaign that he established himself as a regular in the squad.

A tall target man he tends to drift in and out of matches and suffers more than his fair share of injuries.

He tends to be used from the bench late in matches as a super sub.
