Club career

Mirošević began his football career with one of the biggest Chilean football clubs Universidad Católica in 1992. His professional debut at the age of 17 in 1997 occurred in part due to a strike by professional footballers which saw players of the youth squads compete in the Torneo Apertura 1997. Mirošević's debut with Catolica ended in a 4–1 win over rivals Colo-Colo at Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo.

in 2000, after two seasons with the reserves team, Mirošević became a regular in Católica's starting eleven. In 2002, under coach Juvenal Olmos, Mirosevic was the star of the club's win of the Apertura.

After 2002 he was transferred to Racing Club of Argentina where he obtained mixed results. He was then transferred from Racing to Beitar Jerusalem FC for the 2006/2007 season. On 7 May 2007 he won the Israel's championship.[1] In 2008 he returned to Argentina signing with Argentinos Juniors. Mirošević finally returned to Universidad Católica in June 2008 as one of the new players brought in for the Clausura Tournament. He holds the current record of scoring in 5 consecutive matches against Universidad de Chile. In his time back with Católica he helped the club capture the league title in 2010 and the 2011 Copa Chile.

On 4 January 2012 it was announced that Mirošević had agreed to terms with Major League Soccer club Columbus Crew on a multi-year deal.[2] However, hs stay in Columbus lasted only one season and he was released by the club on 20 January 2013.[3] Immediately upon his release Mirošević signed with one of his former sides, Universidad Católica.[4]

National team

Mirošević received his first opportunity with the Chilean national team under Juvenal Olmos tenure as manager. During these World Cup qualifying games, Mirošević scored twice, once against Argentina and once against Uruguay.

During the 2010 World Cup qualifiers, Marcelo Bielsa called Mirošević up for the first games against Uruguay and Paraguay, without getting the chance to play. After four years of not being called up by the national team, on 10 November 2011, Mirošević was called up by Claudio Borghi to fill in after some suspensions were in effect, getting the chance to play as a substitute during one of the games.

Playing style

His footballing style is characterized by great pace, vision and team work. He has a good shot, both from distance and from free kicks. He is considered an idol by the Universidad Católica fans, who hoped that he would someday return to the club that saw him become the footballer he is today while he was playing outside of Chile. He comes from a wealthy family in Chile, where he attended Saint Gabriel's School.
