Davor Šuker helped Yugoslavia win the 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship in Chile, and in the wake of Croatian independence, emerged as a star striker – and was voted as Croatia's Golden Player to mark UEFA's Jubilee in 2004.

Šuker won a Spanish title and the 1997/98 UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid CF, and his six goals at the 1998 FIFA World Cup helped him to win the Golden Shoe, while Croatia took the bronze medal. He also enjoyed fine spells with hometown side NK Osijek, GNK Dinamo Zagreb, Sevilla FC and Arsenal FC.

Always considered as an ambassador for Croatian football, he has looked to continue in that role as Croatian Football Federation (HNS) president, a role which he began in 2012. He was elected to the UEFA Executive Committee in March 2015.
