Jurica Buljat

Clubs: NK Zadar (twice), HNK Hajduk Split, Maccabi Haifa FC, FC Energie Cottbus

• Joined home-town club NK Zadar and enjoyed an impressive 2004/05 season in the Croatian top flight – despite the team's relegation – making 25 appearances and scoring four goals.

• Transferred to Hajduk, he took a couple of years to find his feet at the Dalmatian club but was a regular in central defence by the 2007/08 season, at the start of which he made his European debut in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Cup.

• Captured his first major honour when Hajduk won the Croatian Cup in 2010, remaining on the field throughout both legs of the final against HNK Šibenik; made his international debut three weeks later, as a late substitute in a friendly against Estonia in Tallinn.

• Helped Hajduk to three successive Prva Liga runners-up finishes and into the 2010/11 UEFA Europa League group stage, scoring his first European goal on matchday five against AEK Athens FC.

• Joined Maccabi Haifa in summer 2011 and made 31 starts in the Israeli top flight; also reached the UEFA Europa League group stage again and – curiously - scored against another 'AEK', Cypriot club AEK Larnaca FC, again on matchday five.

• A surprise inclusion in Croatia's UEFA EURO 2012 squad, Jurica Buljat played no part in the qualifying campaign and had experienced only a few minutes of international football when he was named in Slaven Bilić's party, but did not appear in Poland and Ukraine.
