Daniel Koprivcic (born August 3, 1981) is a footballer playing for Auckland City FC in the New Zealand Football Championship. He is considered[by whom?] to be one of the best players in the NZFC, having scored many goals for former club Waitakere United and for Auckland City in not only the NZFC but the Oceania Champions League. He holds the record as the only player to participate in the FIFA Club World Cup six times.

Club career[edit]

In 2009 he moved to Auckland City FC where he scored 4 goals in 13 appearances, as well as notching up 6 appearances in the 2009–10 OFC Champions League and scoring 7 goals.
