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.

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.
