Well, hello there! Aussie born of Croatian descent, goalie Željko retired at the end of the 2009-2010 season. Here he is modeling for D&G. He started his professional career in 1989 and played in Australia (Sydney United), England (Leicester City), The Netherlands (Roda), Italy (Perugia, Milan) and Greece (Kavala). He started on the Australian U-16 the same year he signed professionally. He eventually moved up to the senior team in 1992 and remained there until 2006. He is currently the goalkeeping coach for A League side Sydney FC. Interesting fact: At 6′ 7 1/2″, he is one of the tallest professional goalkeepers in the world. (Holy crap! How tall is the tallest one?!)

Oh hey, it’s about time Borri showed up here, right? He’s been scheduled for awhile, but watishista! Mel gave me a little reminder that it was Borri time. So here he is in all his hot ass glory.
