Dario Vidosic

Vidosic relocated from Croatia to Brisbane with his parents at age one when his father accepted an offer to play for the Queensland Lions.

An exciting attacking midfielder, Dario emerged as a young talent with Brisbane Roar in the initial years of the Hyundai A-League before his ability took him overseas where he was signed by ambitious German side FC Nurnberg.

His second season with Nurnberg saw the club win promotion back to the Bundesliga, with Vidosic scoring some crucial late season goals.

Selection for the Socceroos followed in 2009 and he made his international debut for Australia in 2010, coming on as a late sub in the final World Cup qualifier against Japan. In 2011, Vidosic returned to Australia to play for Adelaide United.

He has remained in the Socceroos squad and came off the bench in Australia’s 1-1 draw with Japan that helped secure Australia’s qualification for the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
