Martin Dúbravka (born 15 January 1989) is a Slovak footballer who plays for Slovan Liberec.

Club career[edit]

Dúbravka made his senior team debut in a 5–2 home win against Dubnica on 26 May 2009. In the next season he played 26 Corgoň Liga games, finishing as a league champion. He became a first choice after the transfer of Dušan Perniš in January 2010. He qualified with Žilina to the 2010–11 UEFA Champions League and played all 6 group games. He kept a clean sheet at the play-off round against Sparta Praha. On 30 January 2014, he signed a 3½ year deal with the Danish Superliga club Esbjerg fB.[1]

International career[edit]

Dúbravka, former under-19 and under-21 national player, was selected to the Slovakia national football team for the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying home game against Republic of Ireland.

Dúbravka made his national team debut against Montenegro on 23 May 2014 (2-0 win).[2]

In January 2017, he played his first full game in the national team, playing 45 minutes in both of his previous matches. While he was benched against Uganda (1–3 loss), on 12 January he was fielded in an unofficial friendly match against Sweden in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Slovakia lost the game 0–6, despite only losing 0–1 after half time. This match also marked the first time Dúbravka conceded in the national team and he was also Slovak captain for the game, being the most experienced with international football.[3][4]
