Tomi Juric (/ˈtɒmi ˈjʊrɪ/ TOM-ee YUR-itch;[3] Croatian: Jurić, pronounced [jǔːritɕ];[4] born 22 July 1991) is an Australian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Swiss Super League club FC Luzern and Australia.

Club career

Adelaide United

On 10 February 2013, after spending a number of seasons abroad in Croatia playing for NK Lokomotiva and NK Inter Zaprešić in the Prva HNL, Juric signed a short-term contract to play for Australian club Adelaide United in the A-League.[5] On 16 February 2013, Juric scored on his Adelaide United debut in a 2–1 defeat at Sydney FC.

Western Sydney Wanderers

On 20 May 2013 Juric signed for Western Sydney Wanderers on a two-year deal, becoming the Wanderers first signing of the A-League off-season. On debut for the Wanderers he scored the equaliser against the Central Coast Mariners in the 1–1 draw on 12 October 2013. Juric scored his first Asian Champions League goal in the Round of 16 against Sanfrecce Hiroshima on 7 May 2014. In a successful first season at Western Sydney, Juric finished with 12 goals in 29 appearances, four of those coming in the 2014 Asian Champions League which his side won, Juric scoring, an amazing goal, the only goal in a 1–0 aggregate win over the Arabian team Al-Hilal.[citation needed]

On 15 January 2015, Juric turned his back on a proposed $10 million move to Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, opting to chase a move to Europe, where he believed he would have a better chance of staying involved with the Socceroos beyond the 2015 AFC Asian Cup.[6] Juric was released by the Wanderers on 16 May 2015.[citation needed]

Roda JC

On 15 August 2015, Juric signed a one-year deal with Eredivisie side Roda JC. He made his Eredivisie debut for Roda JC on 20 September 2015 at the Parkstad Limburg Stadion in Kerkrade against Feyenoord as a 71st-minute substitute for Edwin Gyasi.[7] He was released at the end of the 2015–16 season.[8]

FC Luzern

On 2 July 2016, despite interest from the Chinese Super League, Juric joined FC Luzern.[9] On his first appearance for Luzern, Juric manage to score a brace. [10] After scoring four goals in seventeen appearances for Luzern, English club Reading FC who were impressed with his ability to hold up play and trouble defences, were reportedly interested in his services. [11] Despite intense interest from England, Juric further endeared himself to the Luzern faithful and stayed. Though injury troubles slowed him down, Juric finished the 2016–17 Swiss Super League season, with 8 goals in 30 appearances. [12]

2017–18

Despite a second injury hit season in the 2017–18 Swiss Super League, Juric was once again Luzern's second highest goalscorer with seven goals in twenty seven appearances.[13]

International career

On 28 June 2013, Juric was called up to the Socceroos training camp on the Central Coast.[14] Juric made his debut for the Socceroos off the bench in the Socceroos' 2013 EAFF East Asian Cup match against South Korea.[citation needed]

Juric was chosen by Ange Postecoglou, the Australian manager, to take part in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup and on 13 January 2015, Juric scored his first Asian Cup goal against Oman, coming of the bench as a substitute for Tim Cahill. He set up the winning goal in the final in extra time for Australia, holding off Korean defenders and pulling off a nutmeg to put a cross through to James Troisi.[citation needed]

In May 2018 he was named in Australia’s 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.[15]
