Croatian goalkeeper Ivan Turina, who was found dead in his apartment in Stockholm today, played for several clubs across Europe.
He began his career at Dinamo Zagreb in 1998 as a youth team player before gradually making his way into the first team.
He made over 70 appearances for the club and had various loan spells at other teams around Europe.
Turina, who was 32, won his only international cap for his country in a friendly match against Hong Kong in 2006.
He appeared for Dinamo Zagreb in a UEFA Champions League third round qualifying match against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium later on that year.
Turina's current club, Swedish side AIK, confirmed his death in a statement.
