Anas Sharbini (born 21 February 1987 in Rijeka[1]) is a Croatian football midfielder playing for HNK Hajduk Split in the Croatian first division.


Club career

Anas rose through the ranks of HNK Rijeka, starting his professional career with the club in 2005. Despite his young age, he was chosen to captain the side in the 2007-2008 season.

He has often been highly praised as an emerging talent in the Prva HNL. He has made a popular name for himself by scoring many late equalizers for his side, saving them from losses many times. Behind the likes of such players like Luka Modrić, Nikola Kalinić and Mario Mandžukić, he is considered one of the best young players in Croatia, and on September 11 2008 he was selected by IMScouting as "Player to Watch".[2]

On August 13, 2009 he signed for Hajduk Split.

International career

Sharbini has won 29 caps and scored 10 goals in various youth levels of Croatia and made his biggest impact with the Croatian U21 team. Due to his fine form in the 2007–08 season, national manager Slaven Bilić called him up to represent Croatia in their Euro 2008 campaign, as a reserve in case of injuries. As a highly rated youngster, he has also been called up as a reserve for the Croatian national football team at Euro 2008, and most recently, for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against England in September 2009. [3].

Family and Background

He is the brother of striker Ahmad Sharbini of Hajduk Split. His father, Jamal Sharbini, is a Palestinian born in Damascus, Syria.[4] Jamal came to Rijeka in the early 1980s as an economics student. His mother, Ranka, is Croatian, born in Grobnik, near Rijeka. Anas has stayed playing in Croatia for all of his career, and opted to play for Croatian national team.
