Agustín Vuletich (born November 3, 1991) is an Argentine football forward of Croatian descent who plays for Veracruz in the Liga MX.

Personal life[edit]

Vuletich was born in Arias, Córdoba Province. He is an Argentinean citizen but is attempting to obtain a Croatian passport.[2][3]

Apart from his professional football career, he studies law in the University of Flores.[1][4]

Club career[edit]

Vuletich made his professional debut for Vélez Sársfield on March 27, 2011, entering the field on the 86th minute of a 3–0 win against Arsenal de Sarandí, for the 2011 Clausura.[5] With Santiago Silva banned and Guillermo Franco injured, he started and played 79 minutes in the 2–1 away victory over Olimpo, on April 2.[5] He scored his first professional goal on a 2–3 home defeat to Quilmes.[6]

During his first season with the team, he helped them win the 2011 Clausura tournament and reach the semi-finals of the 2011 Copa Libertadores.

Vuletich was loaned to AC Bellinzona on January 30, 2012.[7] He was loaned to Chilean side Cobresal in mid–2012. In January 2013, he was again loaned, now to San Marcos de Arica.

International career[edit]

In July 2011, Vuletich was selected to represent Argentina at the FIFA U-20 World Cup to be played in Colombia. He played two games in the competition, both coming on as a substitute: the first group stage game against Mexico (1–0 victory) and the quarter-finals against Portugal (0–0 on extra time, and 4–5 defeat on penalty shootout, where Vuletich scored his penalty).
