A journeyman midfielder who has never played in a European club competition, Tomislav Dujmović did not make his international debut for Croatia until he was nearly 29. He subsequently helped his country to qualify for UEFA EURO 2012, playing a pivotal role in the 3-0 win in Turkey in the first leg of the play-off.
• Zagreb-born, he started out with GNK Dinamo Zagreb but made his first top-flight appearances after moving to city rivals NK Hrvatski Dragovoljac; narrowly avoided relegation in his first season there but succumbed to the drop a year later.
• Returned to the top flight with NK Inter Zaprešić in 2003/04 but left them for NK Međimurje half way through the following campaign and remained with the Cakovec side for a year before departing for Russia to join FC Amkar Perm.
• Settled slowly in Russia before becoming a key midfielder for Amkar, making a total of 54 Premier-Liga appearances in the 2007 and 2008 seasons and helping his team finish fourth in the latter.
• Moved to Moscow for the 2009 season, joining FC Lokomotiv Moskva, where he again figured prominently, scoring three goals in 26 appearances and, at the end of it, winning his belated first cap for Croatia – in a 5-0 friendly win against Liechtenstein.
• Left Lokomotiv for city rivals FC Dinamo Moskva midway through 2010 campaign and became increasingly involved on the international stage, making six UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying appearances.
