Matija Špičić (born 24 February 1988 in Zagreb) is a Croatian footballer who is currently playing for HNK Gorica.

Club career[edit]

Špičić joined NK Zagreb as a twelve-year-old. A product of NK Zagreb youth academy, he was promoted to first team in April 2006 and has been playing for the club ever since, usually as left winger. Although he was seen as one of the most talented NK Zagreb young players, his career suffered a setback when he broke his leg twice in 2008. After a period of recovery, he is now a first-team regular with the team.

As of October 2009, he has earned 33 caps and scored 11 goals for Croatia's national team at various youth levels between 2003 and 2009.[1] and was a first-team member of the squad which participated at the 2005 European Under-17 Championship.

In June 2013 Špičić signed with Azerbaijan Premier League side Inter Baku.[2][3]
