I don't think there was a thread on this, so I decided to make one where we can document Croatia's up and coming stars.

Ante Vukusic

Age: 18

Club: Hajduk Split

Nationality: Croatian

Position: Fwd

Ante Vukusic is 18 years old talented Croatian forward who currently playing for Hajduk Split. Vukusic predicted to be new star of Croatian league this season

Vukusic born at 4th June, 1991 at Sinj. Last season,he's star player of Hajduk youth team in youth competition. He's the highlight of Hajduk campaign during last season. Hajduk finished 2nd at youth league and Vukusic scored 20 goals and made 8 assists. He also awarded as 2nd best youth player behind Mario Sacer with 77 points

With Nikola Kalinic, Hajduk regular striker leaving to the EPL, Vukusic already tipped to play regular this season. Vukusic is very strong in one on one situation and he has similarity with Eduardo (Arsenal). He can smell a goal and very opportunist when get chance. His weakness is he's not too good in heading.

Vukusic is awesome. He scored our winner last match, and was by far our best player on the pitch. Edoardo Reja even said himself that he has the potential to play in some of the strongest leagues someday.

As for future prospects...

Mario Ticinovic - Kid is 18 and held his own against Deportivo La Coruna, he has one hell of a fighting spirit. Tends to score pretty often too.

Mario Maloca - Good defender. Pretty solid for the U-21 team, and I think that someday he'll be Kovac' replacement.

Ante Rukavina - Plays at Pao, very promosing. I presonally think he's better than Kalinic, he's taller, quicker and for a tall mother ***ker, dribbles the ball like a psycho. Go on youtube and look for his goal against Greece U-21 ...

Ivan Perisic - Foward at Club Brugge. Very promising. Check out some of his goals

Lastly, which I think is our best prospect...

Darko Bodul - Hes born in Sarajevo (sorry Bosnia lol), hes at Ajax now. Went through their youth school, Ajax resigned him last season, hes on loan at Rotterdam. This kid I have very high hopes for. Also, he lives with Miralem Suljemani, who himself expects great things from him. (no homo)

Yeah Darko Bodul is a huge talent (too bad he will probably play for Cro ) but also the young GK, I think his name is Delac, is a huge talent aswell.
