Nikola is a yet another player from a very talented generation of Austria Wien and one of its biggest hopes for a better future, right next to Sascha Horvath, Dominik Prokop, Marko Kvasina or Petar Gluhakovic. This season is one of the most succesful seasons for him – he has thus far scored a lot of goals in the Austrian Jugendliga, UEFA Youth League and at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, where the Austrians failed to progress from the group stages. His standout goal is perhaps the one against Canada, which has been nominated by FIFA as the best goal of the tournament.
