Club careerEdit

Kvržić signed for HAŠK after spending four years at Proleter Teslić, where he made his first appearances in professional football. During his playing time at HAŠK, Kvržić made a name for himself, which earned him a move to Croatian First Division side Osijek where he stayed for three seasons. In January 2013, FK Ural had a deal with Osijek reportedly worth over €250,000 to sign him, but issues with the Russian Premier League caused the deal to fall apart. Fellow Croatian side Rijeka spent over €400,000 to bring Osijek duo Zoran Kvržić and Marko Lešković to the club in a joint deal in 2013.[2]

In January 2015, Kvržić was loaned to Spezia Calcio in Italy's Serie B until the end of 2014–15 season.[3] In July 2015, Rijeka once again sent Kvržić to Spezia, this time on a season-long loan.[4] This was followed by another season-long loan in 2016–17 to FC Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.

International careerEdit

On 16 December 2011, Kvržić made his debut for Bosnia and Herzegovina in a friendly game against Poland.[5] Following a three-year hiatus, in January 2018 Kvržić was called up for the friendly games against United States and Mexico, on 28 January and 31 January 2018.
