Born in a small fishing community in the Bay of Kotor, Luštica started playing youth football at NK Osvit based in Šibenik, moving to the senior team at only 13 but he was first noticed by the public when he played in the Yugoslavia youth team which beat the then-powerful Hungary youth selection in Belgrade. Soon after that he signed for Hajduk Split, where he spent the rest of his playing career. His official debut for the club was on 9.3.1941 in a 5-2 win against Concordia Zagreb. During WW2 he played in all of Hajduk's games after the club escaped (and was temporarily relocated) to the island of Vis in 1944. After the war Luštica continued playing for Hajduk and won three Yugoslav championships (1950, 1952 and 1955). He appeared in a total of 634 games (making him third in Hajduk's list of all-time appearances, behind Frane Matošić and Ivan Hlevnjak) and scored a total of 86 goals.
He debuted for the national team on 23 August 1951 at a friendly against Norway in Oslo (which Yugoslavia won 4–2). He earned just two more caps, the last one in a 5–0 win against Egypt on 2 November 1952 in Belgrade.
