Milan "Miki" Rapaić (born 16 August 1973 in Nova Gradiška) is a Croatian football (soccer) midfielder who is currently player of NK Trogir after his contract with Standard Liège ended in July 2007.

Previously, Rapaić played for Hajduk Split (1991-1996, 2002-2003), Perugia (1996-2000), Fenerbahçe (2000-2002), and Ancona (2003-2004).

A regular in the Croatia national football team, he had earned 45 caps and scored five goals as of the end of 2004. Rapaić played two games for his country at the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He will be most remembered for his spectacular if somewhat lucky winning goal scored against Italy. He also played three games for Croatia in Euro 2004 and scored one goal.

He has proved a fan favourite wherever he has played, and after impressive performances he once again earned a call up for the Croatian national side after missing the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Croatia went on to beat the world champions Italy (0-2, in August 2006) with Rapaić playing a large role. He is also known for his boisterous night life which is one of the reasons (together with his spontaneous and simple character) he is so popular among fans, and also one of the reasons he never materialized enough his tremendous talent.
