This season must feel like something out of a movie for Bayern Munich youngster Josip Stanisic.

In addition to being a regular for the game day roster with the Bavarians, Stanisic has earned call-up to Croatia.

While we examined what this all means for Stanisic, the 21-year-old talked about how he is ready to embrace the challenge that is ahead of him.

“My family comes from Slavonski Brod, a city in the east of Croatia. It’s a dream for me to play for Croatia’s senior national team. The Croatian FA and the coach have been making great efforts with me for several months and showed me an outlook. I’m really looking forward to the challenge,” Stanisic told

After a strong showing during the preseason, Stanisic has not slowed down. The versatile defender has played 380 minutes during seven appearances across all competitions so far this season.

Clearly, Stanisic is showing both club and country that he has a lot to offer.
