He scored 37 international goals in 51 matches for the Yugoslavia national football team.[1] He participated in the 1960 Summer Olympics, winning the gold medal, the 1960 UEFA European Football Championship, where Yugoslavia finished second (despite his goal in the final), and the 1962 FIFA World Cup, where Yugoslavia finished fourth. On the club level, he played for FK Partizan and Standard Liège. In 1960 he played in one of his 57 internationals against Denmark. He got sent off, but Yugoslavia still won 3-1.
