Ante Jazić (born February 26, 1976 in Bedford, Nova Scotia) is a Canadian soccer player who currently plays for Chivas USA in Major League Soccer, and for the Canadian national team.


Club career



Jazić started his soccer career as a youth player for Scotia Soccer Club. As a senior level, he played for one the nation's strongest amateur teams, Halifax King of Donair, and a year with Dalhousie University in which he was named All-Canadian CIAU.


Jazić began his professional career by joining NK Hrvatski Dragovoljac in 1997 after a successful try-out arranged by an uncle in Croatia. After two years with Dragovoljac, he joined Croatian First League club Hajduk Split for the 1999-00 and 2000-01 seasons.

Jazić then played four seasons with Rapid Vienna. He played for FC Kuban Krasnodar in the Russian Premier League in the 2006 season. Kuban were relegated to the Russian First Division for 2005. On June 27, 2006, he signed a contract with Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer, where he would spend the next two years.

On January 15, 2009, Jazić was traded to Chivas USA along with the Galaxy's 35th- and 49th-overall picks in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft in exchange for Chivas' second-round pick (19th-overall), which the Galaxy used to select defender A. J. DeLaGarza.[1]

International career

He made his debut for Canada in a May 1998 friendly match against Macedonia and has, by November 2009, earned a total of 23 caps, scoring 1 goal. He has represented Canada in 6 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[2] and was a member of the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup squad.
