Danijel Subašić (pronounced [dânijel sûbaʃitɕ]; born 27 October 1984) is a Croatian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for AS Monaco FC in Ligue 1 and the Croatian national team.

Club career[edit]

Zadar[edit]

Subašić started his professional career in his hometown club Zadar during the 2003–04 season. Following Zadar's relegation from the top flight at the end of the 2004–05 season, he became a first-team regular during the club's time in the Croatian second division.

Hajduk Split[edit]

Subašić at Hajduk

In the summer of 2008, he was loaned to Hajduk Split[2] and immediately became a regular at the club, appearing in all of their 18 league matches in the first half of the 2008–09 season. During the winter break of the season, the club decided to convert the loan into a permanent transfer. Subašić kept his place as a regular in the second half of the season, making a further 13 league appearances for the club. Early in the season, he also made three appearances for the club in the UEFA Europa League qualifying.

During his second season with Hajduk, in 2009–10, he made a total of 28 league appearances, as well as another two appearances in the UEFA Europa League qualifying, and also helped the club win the Croatian Cup.[3]

In the 2010–11 season, he made 20 appearances in the league. He had a knee injury in early November which kept him out of action until just prior to the new year. He was the first choice keeper before and after the injury. In that season, Hajduk also qualified for the UEFA Europa League where Danijel kept for all the league games bar one.

Monaco[edit]

In January 2012, Subašić joined struggling French side AS Monaco in Ligue 2.[4] He made 17 appearances for the club during the 2011–12 season, keeping five clean sheets. In the last round of the season, he scored the winning goal from a free kick in a 2–1 away victory over Boulogne.[5] In the new season Subašić played an important part in winning the Ligue 2 and earning promotion in the French top division.[6] He missed only 3 league matches. On 10 August 2013, he made his Ligue 1 debut for Monaco in 2-0 win against Bordeaux.[7] He was also used in Ligue 1, keeping four clean sheets and eleven undefeated rounds with Monaco in his first season spent in French top division in 13 match since promotion. Subašić played 35 matches in Ligue 1 as Monaco finished runner-up in 2013–14 season. During the 2014–15 season, Subašić kept 8 consecutive clean sheets in Ligue 1 matches. On 8 February 2015, his impressive run of not conceding a goal ended after 842 minutes in an away match against Guingamp.[8]

International career[edit]

Subašić with the national team

Subašić made his international debut with the Croatian under-21 national team, in a friendly match against Denmark on 1 March 2006. During the same year, he won a total of 6 international caps with the team, including two competitive appearances in the qualifying for the 2007 European Under-21 Championship.[9]

In 2009, he was called up to the Croatian national team at the full international level, and made his debut for the team on 14 November 2009 in a friendly match against Liechtenstein in Vinkovci, playing the full 90 minutes and keeping a clean sheet in Croatia's 5–0 win.[10] In May 2010, he won another two international caps in friendly matches, in the away fixtures at Austria and Estonia, keeping clean sheets in both matches.[11][12] After Stipe Pletikosa retired from international football in 2014, Subašić became Croatia`s first choice goalkeeper.[13]
