Milos Krasic

Miloš Krasić (Serbian Cyrillic: Милош Красић; born 1 November 1984) is a Serbian professional footballer who plays for Juventus and the Serbian national team.Krasić is a right-sided midfielder/winger, noted for his powerful dribbling technique and speed. He has earned comparisons with former Juventus great, Pavel Nedvěd.
After starting out with the hometown side FK Rudar Kosovska Mitrovica Serbia, Krasić was noticed by FK Vojvodina in 1999 and he made a switch northwards at age 14. He spent the next four-and-a-half seasons in Novi Sad, where he further raised his level and became the team captain.
FK Vojvodina and CSKA Moscow were in negotiations over Krasić's transfer since January 2004, but the deal stalled. The player himself even made several unsuccessful trips to Moscow. Finally, during the summer of 2004, the deal was completed and the winger was on his way to Russia. He featured in three games during the club's UEFA Cup 2004–05-winning run, including a cameo appearance in the final. He also helped them win the Russian title in 2005 and 2006, the Russian Cup in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2009, and the Russian Super Cup in 2006, 2007 and 2009.
Krasić was instrumental in his home début against Sampdoria, assisting a goal and creating many chances. The game ended 3–3. In his second away game in the Serie A, against Udinese, Krasić proved once again instrumental in their 4–0 victory, assisting Fabio Quagliarella and Claudio Marchisio for a goal each. Krasić scored his first Juventus goals against Cagliari on 26 September 2010, netting a hat-trick. He scored his first European goal for Juventus, helping his side salvage a point against Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg in the Group A tie of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League, in a match that finished 1–1. On 26 October, he was given a two-match ban after diving, although successfully winning a penalty (the penalty was then missed), during the league match against Bologna.
Krasić scored a goal in a 2–0 away win over Genoa after Eduardo put a ball in his own net in the 18th minute. On 12 December, in the game against Lazio, Krasić scored a very late, match-winning goal in which his attempted cross deflected off Lazio goalkeeper Fernando Muslera and into the net. The match ended immediately after the goal in a 2–1 victory for Juventus. He scored a screamer which guided the Bianconeri to a 2–1 victory against Brescia.He managed to score a screamer against Roma, in which the match ended 2-0.
Krasić has been an important part of Serbia and Montenegro under-21 squad on the last two European U-21 championships, as well as at the 2004 Summer Olympics.

He was in the team that finished as runners-up in the 2004 European under-21 Championship in Germany, but did not play in any games. Two months later, he was part of the Serbia and Montenegro squad at the 2004 Summer Olympics. In May 2006, Krasić was playing a leading role for Serbia and Montenegro in the 2006 European under-21 Championship in 2007 against Kazakhstan. He also played in the match against Portugal on 28 March at the Red Star Stadium in Belgrade.
The game ended in a 1–1 draw. He was an important player for the Serbian senior squad in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification. He scored one goal in the match against Lithuania, another in the game against Austria, and set up three in the game against Romania, which sealed qualification.
