  • Asmir Begović (Bosnian pronunciation: [âsmir běɡoʋitɕ]; born 20 June 1987) is a Bosnian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for English club Chelsea and the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team, for which he is vice-captain.Begović started his professional career with English club Portsmouth, signing for them in the summer of 2003. After a sequence of loans, he made his Premier League debut in May 2009 and deputised for the injured David James early on in the 2009–10 season, before Portsmouth's financial problems led to him being sold to Stoke City for £3.25 million in February 2010. He spent the remainder of the campaign as backup to veteran Thomas Sørensen, afterwards becoming first-choice goalkeeper for the rest of his time at Stoke. In the 2012–13 season he played in every single league match and his performances saw him win the club's Player of the Year award. In November 2013 Begović became the fifth goalkeeper to score a goal in the Premier League, scoring from 97.5 yards against Southampton after 13 seconds, also getting the World Record for 'longest goal scored in football.' In July 2015, he joined Premier League champions Chelsea for a fee of £8 million.Begović represented Canada at youth level playing for them at the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup. In 2009 he decided to change his allegiance and represent his native country, Bosnia and Herzegovina. He soon established himself as their number one goalkeeper and helped them qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, their first major tournament.
