Edin Višća (Bosnian pronunciation: [ědin ʋǐʃtɕa]; born 17 February 1990) is a Bosnian professional footballer who plays as a winger for Süper Lig club İstanbul Başakşehir and the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team.

Višća started his professional career at Budućnost Banovići, before joining Željezničar in 2009. Two years later, he moved to İstanbul Başakşehir.

A former youth international for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Višća made his senior international debut in 2010, earning 40 caps and scoring 8 goals since. He represented the nation at their first major tournament, the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Višća started his career with a lower-league club Budućnost Banovići. After he was spotted by scouts of Željezničar, he joined them in the summer of 2009.[2] Due to administrative problems with his registration, Višća had to wait on his debut until 27 February 2010. That day, he played in a convincing win over Čelik Zenica.[3] He scored his first goal for the club a month later, in a game against Travnik.[4]

İstanbul Başakşehir[edit]

On 10 August 2011, Višća signed a five-year contract with İstanbul Başakşehir.[5] He made his competitive debut in a triumph over Galatasaray on 11 September.[6] Višća's took almost five months to score his first goal for the club, which also came against Galatasaray.[7]

After Başakşehir got relegated to 1. Lig in 2013,[8] Višća was instrumental in their promotion the following season, scoring 10 goals and adding 10 assists.[9]

In August 2016, after a season in which he was proclaimed third most useful player in Turkish league,[10] Višća put pen to paper on a new contract expiring in June 2020.[11] He ended that season as Başakşehir's best goalscorer and fourth overall in the league.[12]

On 18 February 2018, in a game against Trabzonspor, Višća made his 250th appearance for the club.[13] At the end of the season, Višća was best assist provider of the league with 15 overall, which also made him second best in Europe in that statistical category, only behind Kevin De Bruyne.[14] He was also named in Süper Lig's team of the season.[15]

International career[edit]

Višća came through various Bosnia and Herzegovina's youth selections.[16]

In November 2010, he got his first senior call-up for a friendly game against Poland.[17] He made his debut as a starter in that game on 10 December.[18]

In June 2014, Višća was named in Bosnia and Herzegovina's squad for 2014 FIFA World Cup, country's first major competition.[19] He debuted in the opening group game on 16 June, which ended in a narrow defeat to Argentina.[20]

On 12 June 2015, Višća scored his first goals for the senior national side, a brace against Israel in Zenica, during UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying.[21]

In February 2016, he was voted 2015 Bosnian player of the year, by Bosnian sports journalists.[22]

In a friendly game against South Korea played on 1 June 2018, Višća scored his first international hat-trick.[23]

Personal life[edit]

Višća is a practicing Muslim; along with international teammates Muhamed Bešić and Vedad Ibišević he visited a mosque in Cuiabá during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.[24]
