Strong, powerful and good in the air, Juric heads to Russia as Australia's likely starting striker after honing his game with Dutch outfit Roda JC and now FC Luzern.
Best Caltex Socceroos moment:
Juric notably came off the bench in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup final to set up the extra-time winner for James Troisi, while he grabbed a special goal of his in the FIFA Confederations Cup clash with Germany.
Hyundai A-League connection:
An alumnus of both Adelaide and Western Sydney Wanderers, Juric also played and scored for the Foxtel A-League All Stars against Italian giants Juventus in 2014.
