Martin Stocklasa (born 29 May 1979 in Grabs, Switzerland) is a retired naturalized Liechtenstein football defender.

He played for FC Zürich, FC Vaduz, Dynamo Dresden and SV Ried. Stocklasa, and his brother, Michael (now retired),[2] both represented Liechtenstein at the international level[3] and at the time of his retirement, Martin had 113 caps, which tied him with Mario Frick atop his country's appearances list.

Club career[edit]

Stocklasa started his senior career at FC Vaduz in 1997 and moved to Swiss side FC Zürich in the summer of 1999. He went on to spend the entire 2000-01 season on loan to SC Kriens, another Swiss club, and returned to FC Zürich for one season before eventually returning to his first club, FC Vaduz, in the summer of 2002 and spending four seasons there before moving to Dynamo Dresden. Stocklasa had been linked with a move to English club Leeds United, prior to his joining SV Ried.[4] He joined FC St. Gallen, of the Swiss Challenge League, after leaving SV Ried in 2011.

In June 2014, Stocklasa announced his retirement from the game.[5]

International career[edit]

He was capped 113[1] times by his country, scoring five goals, and was the team captain.[2][4] He made his international debut for Liechtenstein in their 5–0 defeat to the Republic of Ireland in a 1998 FIFA World Cup qualifier on 31 August 1996.[1] Stocklasa was the first and currently the only Liechtenstein player to have scored a hat trick in an international game.[2] The achievement came on 17 April 2002, against Luxembourg, in an international friendly.
