Marcelo Brozović (born 16 November 1992) is a Croatian footballer who plays for Dinamo Zagreb and Croatia national football team, as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Brozović was born in Zagreb, and graduated from neighbouring Hrvatski Dragovoljac's youth setup. He made his debut as a professional on 24 July 2010, starting and playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–4 loss against Dinamo Zagreb. Brozović scored his first goal on 18 March of the following year, the winner against Karlovac.

In July 2011 he signed with Lokomotiva, after Hrvatski's relegation.[2] He appeared in 27 league matches in his first campaign, scoring four times as Lokomotiva achieved a comfortable mid-table position.

In August 2012, Brozović signed a seven year contract with Dinamo Zagreb, as a replacement for Hamburger SV-bound Milan Badelj.[3]

International career[edit]

Brozović appeared with Croatia in the under-18, under-19, under-20 and under-21 categories. With the latter he appeared well during 2013, scoring seven goals in only seven appearances.

On 31 May 2014, Brozović was included in Niko Kovač's final list for 2014 FIFA World Cup,[4] and made his debut for the main squad on 7 June, starting in a 1–0 success against Australia at the Estádio de Pituaçu.[5]

Brozović made his World Cup debut five days later, playing the last 26 minutes in a 1–3 loss against the hosts.[6]
