Zeljko Kalac (born 16 December 1972) is an Australian former soccer goalkeeper, who is currently the manager of Northbridge Bulls. Nicknamed "Spider" due to his tall, gangly figure, standing at 2.02 m., Kalac is the tallest player to have represented the Australia national football team.Kalac's preferred playing number (when not the conventional number 1) is 18 and has generally worn this number when playing for Australia.
