The Best of 2012: Ante Jazic

By Olivia Cervantes

Since joining Chivas USA in 2009, defender Ante Jazic has become a solid and consistent member in the Red-and-White back line. This season, Jazic played in 27 matches (all starts), missing just seven games due to international duty and/or injuries.

Most recently, Jazic was nominated for the end-of-year Xbox Individual Fair Play award after going the entire season without receiving a neither yellow nor red card, a personal low for the Halifax, Nova Scotia native.

Aside from league action, Jazic was a key player for the Canadian National Team’s CONCACAF World Cup Qualification run. Les Rouges were eliminated from World Cup contention in the hexagonal, not before taking three wins, two losses and a draw, finishing in third place of Group C.
