Eldar Hadzimehmedovic (born 10 September 1984) is a Bosnian football player who plays as a striker or as an attacking midfielder. He currently plays for Norwegian side Brumunddal.

Life and career[edit]

He was born in Tuzla, SR Bosnia-Herzegovina, Yugoslavia,[4] and came to Norway at the age of 12.[5] He previously played for Bærum in two periods, Lyn, Strømsgodset, Pors Grenland and Modum FK.[6] Ahead of the 2014 season he went from Raufoss to Brumunddal.[7]

He never made a breakthrough at Lyn, but made a name for himself against NSÍ Runavík in the UEFA Cup qualifying round. In the second leg, the then-18-year-old Hadžimehmedović made the unusual starting eleven, scoring a hat-trick in the first half. He then scored another hat-trick in the first 25 minutes of the second half. Having scored his six goals, he was then substituted in the 70th minute. 6 goals by Eldar Hadzimehmedovic in this game is the most goals scored by a player in one game record in UEFA cup competition,[8] and he currently holds the record for most goals in a match for Lyn, jointly with John Sveinsson.

International career[edit]

Hadzimehmedovic has played for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national under-21 football team and the Under-19.[9]
