Five-Goal Hero Andrej Kramarić Set to Smash 7-Year Record

AKEduardo da Silva’s 2007 Croatian first division record of 34 goals in a season looks like it may be broken this season…

Croatian international Andrej Kramarić (23) scored five goals in Rijeka’s 6-0 drubbing of Lokomotiva on Sunday, taking his season tally to 21 after just 15 rounds. Kramarić netted in the 21st, 22nd, 38th, 49th and 63rd minute before being taken off late in the second half. Kramarić was one goal short of breaking another Croatian record for most goals in a match. In 2000 Slaven Belupo’s Marijo Dodik scored six in a first division match.

“Of course I am happy and proud because of the five goals, but I have to mention my teammates Močinić, Sharbini and Kvržić, who set me up perfectly that I couldn’t miss. They gave me the ball on a plate. Maybe it sounds arrogant, but I am sorry I didn’t score six for the record. I knew Dodik’s record was six goals, it was going through my head,” said Kramarić, who heads off this week with the Croatian national team for matches against Argentina and Italy.
