Kamil Kopúnek (born 18 May 1984) is a Slovak football midfielder who currently plays for Ravan Baku in the Azerbaijan Premier League.

Club career[edit]

FC Spartak Trnava[edit]

Kamil Kopúnek started his career with his local club, Spartak Trnava. He became a first-team player in January 2002 at the young age of 17 and made his debut in spring 2002, receiving a red card in his first match. In October 2009, he became a captain.[1] He spent eight and one-half years there, leaving Trnava in summer 2010.

Saturn Moscow Oblast[edit]

On 27 August 2010, he joined the Russian Premier League club FC Saturn Moscow Oblast on a 4-month contract. He played for Saturn in seven league games before the club was dissolved due to huge debts in January 2011.

Bari[edit]

Kopúnek signed a half-year contract with the Serie A club A.S. Bari on 31 January 2011. He made his debut on 13 March in a 1–1 draw against Milan at San Siro. In July 2011, he signed a three-year contract. His contract was ended by mutual consent in January 2012.[2]

ŠK Slovan Bratislava[edit]

Despite he was born in Trnava and played for Spartak from childhood years he joined arch-rivals ŠK Slovan Bratislava since 19 January 2012. He left the club in August 2013.

Ravan Baku[edit]

After going on trial with FC Bunyodkor in February 2014,[3] Kopúnek went on to sign for Ravan Baku of the Azerbaijan Premier League in March 2014.[4] At the end of the 2013–14 season, Ravan were relegated to the Azerbaijan First Division, and whilst Kopúnek was still contracted to Ravan for the next season, he openly admitted to be looking for a new club.[5]

International career[edit]

Kopúnek represented Slovakia on junior levels and played at the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship in all four matches for national U-20 team.

On 1 March 2006, he made his senior national team debut in a 2–1 astonishing win against France at Stade de France in friendly match. He scored his first international goal against Cameroon on 29 May 2010 and was subsequently named to the Slovakia squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. On 24 June 2010, coming on as a substitute, he scored Slovakia's third goal with his first touch of the game in their group match against Italy which ended 3–2 and ultimately sent the Italians crashing out of the FIFA World Cup 2010.[6]
