Bojan Krkic- Natural born Goal scorer!
(born 28 August 1990), sometimes known as just Bojan, is a Spanish footballer who currently plays as a striker for Spanish La Liga club FC Barcelona.
Bojan Krkić was born in Linyola to a Serbian father (Bojan Krkić, Sr., a professional footballer for Red Star Belgrade) and a Spanish mother (María Lluïsa Pérez). He played for Barcelona's youth teams or cantera from 1999 to 2006, scoring 960 goals. A quick striker with quite notable dribbling skills, Bojan played the 2006–07 season with the FC Barcelona B team until he signed a professional contract with the FC Barcelona A team upon turning 17. Bojan played his first match with Barcelona on 24 April 2007, scoring a goal in a friendly match against Al-Ahly. The match ended with a 4–0 win for Barça.
On 16 September 2007 (at 17 years and 19 days), Bojan made his official debut for FC Barcelona against CA Osasuna, replacing Giovani dos Santos in the 78th minute and breaking Lionel Messi's record of the youngest Barcelona player to feature in a La Liga match. Three days later, he made his UEFA Champions League debut against Olympique Lyonnais, coming on at the 88th minute for Messi. He was, at the time, the youngest FC Barcelona player ever to feature in a Champions League game, at 17 years and 22 days. He made his second Champions League appearance on 2 October, coming on at the 81st minute for Ronaldinho against VfB Stuttgart.
On 20 October 2007 (at 17 years and 53 days), Bojan made his first league start for FC Barcelona away to Villarreal CF and scored in the 25th minute. It was his first goal for the club's first team and it made him the youngest ever goalscorer for Barcelona in a league match.
Bojan scored his first ever Champions League goal on 1 April 2008 (at 17 years and 215 days) against Schalke 04, netting the only goal in the first (away) leg of the quarter-finals, making him the first person born in the 1990s to score in the Champions League and the second youngest player ever, behind Ghanaian forward Peter Ofori-Quaye, then playing for Olympiacos, who scored at the age of 17 years and 195 days.
Bojan finished the season with a record of 10 goals, breaking Raúl's record of most goals scored in a debut season
After 14 games (13 of which he entered as a substitute), Bojan ended a goal drought by netting a brace against UD Almería in a 2-0 victory. Despite featuring less than in the preceding season, Bojan helped Barcelona to their 19th La Liga title. He also managed to help Barcelona to their first Copa del Rey win in 11 years by scoring five goals in the competition, including one in the final against Athletic Bilbao. Bojan was an unused substitute in the 2009 UEFA Champions League Final against Manchester United, which Barcelona won 2-0 and saw them cap off a treble-winning campaign. Bojan's three goals in ten appearances throughout the competition saw him finish as the equal sixth-highest goalscorer for the season.
Bojan shot to prominence at the UEFA European Under 17 Championship in Luxembourg in May 2006 when he was joint top-scorer. He achieved this despite being a year younger than most of the other players in the tournament and only playing 40 minutes in four out of five of Spain Under-17's matches.
During the tournament, Bojan scored five goals, finishing as joint third top scorer along with Germany and Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos. He was inspirational in leading Spain to the final. However, in the semi-final against Ghana, Bojan was sent off for his second yellow card with only seconds left to play. He was suspended for the final and Spain lost to Nigeria on penalties. Because of his performances, Bojan was given the Adidas Bronze Ball, naming him the third best player in the tournament, behind Macauley Christantus (silver) and Toni Kroos (gold).
On 1 February 2008, Bojan was included in Luis Aragonés' squad for the friendly against France on 6 February 2008. Should he have featured in that match, Bojan would have made history by becoming the youngest player ever to represent Spain at 17 years, 5 months and 9 days, eclipsing Ángel Zubieta's record of 17 years and 9 months, which has stood for over 70 years. However, Bojan injured himself during the warm-up and could not play.
On 17 May 2008, it was revealed that Bojan had been left out of Spain's 23-man squad for Euro 2008, after having talked to Luis Aragonés asking if he could be left out of the team on personal grounds, and also citing fatigue.
He made his debut for the Spanish National Team on 10 September 2008 (at 18 years and 13 days) under Vicente del Bosque against Armenia, where he came on during the last ten minutes for Santi Cazorla and played on the right wing.
