Andrej Kramarić (born 19 June 1991) is a Croatian professional footballer who plays as a striker for HNK Rijeka and Croatia national team.
Kramarić started his football career in his hometown club Dinamo Zagreb and holds the record as the top youth goalscorer in the club's history. Hailed as one of the club`s biggest talents, he made his first official appearance for Dinamo at the age of 17. In 2013, after he had a dispute with Dinamo Zagreb board, Kramarić was transferred to HNK Rijeka.
He was capped 53 times at the youth level for the Croatia national team, scoring twenty-two goals. Kramarić took part at the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship where he made four appearances for Croatian side which reached the semi-finals. He made his debut for the senior team in 2014.
Kramarić joined Dinamo Zagreb when he was just six years old. During his youth career, Kramarić scored over 450 goals for Dinamo Zagreb youth teams which makes him the best youth scorer in club's history.
In February 2012 it was announced that Kramarić would be loaned to Prva HNL team Lokomotiva Zagreb.
In February 2012, Kramarić was loaned to NK Lokomotiva until the end of the season. At Lokomotiva, Andrej became one of the most proficient strikers in South-Eastern Europe, scoring 20 goals in 44 league appearances in the season and a half he spent with the Lokosi. In his first full season with Lokomotiva he finished runner up to Leon Benko in the 1.HNL top goalscorer race with 15 goals.
HNK Rijeka were the quickest to react to the falling out between Kramarić and Dinamo, securing his services on the 31 August 2013. Kramarić debuted for the team on 15 September 2013, playing in the starting line-up, in Prva HNL league match against Slaven Belupo, in which he also scored his first goal for the team in the 15th minute, also the only goal of the match.
On 9 November, Kramarić has scored five goals against NK Lokomotiva in a home match that ended 6-0, a feat that will enter into league annals as for fourteen years no one scored more than four goals in one match, and in history only two other players managed to score them.
