In June 2010 he agreed a two year contract with the Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta until the summer of 2012. He took the Number 1 shirt from the previous Anorthosis goalkeeper Arjan Beqaj. Kozáčik made his debut for Anorthosis Famagusta in the First qualifying round of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League against Banants. He kept two clean sheets.
Kozáčik lost his place into the starting eleven to the second goalkeeper of the team Marcos Argüello a 0-2 loss against HNK Šibenik at Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium. After the January transfer period Argüello moved to Club Bolivar and Kozáčik returned to the starting line-up for the rest of the season.
Kozáčik started as first-choice goalkeeper for the club's European matches. Then, Kozáčik lost his position to other club goalkeeper Dimitar Ivankov for the next two matches. After two matches Ivankov left the club and from this point Kozáčik continued as first-choice goalkeeper.
FC Viktoria Plzeň
In June 2012, Kozáčik signed a three-year deal with FC Viktoria Plzeň. He quickly established himself as the starting goalkeeper for the club, with which he won the Czech league title in the 2012-2013 season. In February 2014, Kozáčik extended his contract with Plzeň until June 2017.
On 10 December 2006, Kozáčik made his debut for Slovakia when he played in the first half of a friendly against the United Arab Emirates. However, his next game for the national team came almost seven years later when he started in a 2014 World Cup qualifier against Latvia. Kozáčik has been Slovakia's number one goalkeeper in the qualification campaign for UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying.
