Domagoj Vida

Still something of a novice at senior international level, this right-back or central defender was handed his senior debut by national team boss Slaven Bilic in the May 2012 victory against Wales and he went on to play in four Euro 2012 qualifiers, including two starting appearances in the impressive play-off victory against Turkey that got Croatia into this summer’s tournament.

After making his name with Osijek, he sealed a move to Bayer Leverkusen in 2010, but a lack of first team chances with the German Bundesliga forced him to return home to Zagreb and his form in the Croatian league has ensured he is in pole position to push for a starting spot in Poland and Ukraine this summer.

Vida is a big fan of Manchester United’s Nemanja Vidic and if he can reach the sort of heights the big Serbian defender has climbed to in his decorated career, Vida will be a performer to be reckoned with.
