Jan Koprivec (born 15 July 1988) is a Slovenian football goalkeeper who currently plays for Cypriot club Anorthosis Famagusta FC.

Club career[edit]

Koprivec started his career at FC Koper. Along with first team player Jasmin Handanović, Koprivec was transferred to Italian clubs from Koper in summer 2007. Koprivec played for Cagliari in the first round and the first leg of the second round matches of the 2007–08 Coppa Italia, both of which Cagliari won. But Cagliari used Fortin in the second leg, which they lost 4–0 to Sampdoria, and failed to advanced to the next round.

In July 2008, Koprivec moved to Udinese, and immediately joined them in pre-season training.[2][3] He made his league debut for Udinese on 22 March 2009 against Genoa.[4]

On 17 August 2009 he was loaned out to Serie B side Gallipoli.[5] He made his debut 4 days later, in a 1–1 draw with Ascoli, ahead Carlo Sciarrone and Simone Palese, and played only eleven games with the club from Salento due to an injury that hampered his settling into the first team. He returned to Udinese at the end of the season, and was then included into the first team as second-choice goalkeeper behind fellow Slovenian Samir Handanović.

On 15 July 2015, Anorthosis Famagusta FC announced his signing a 2+1 year contract with the Cypriot club.[6]

International career[edit]

Koprivec got his first call up to the Slovenia senior side for the team's 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia and England in October 2016.[7]
