If the morning is a day, then Vidmo is home to a footballer who will be the talk of the town for years to come. David Pejicic raised a lot of dust in midweek with his debut in the Udinese national team, playing on the main stage when he was only 16 years old.

The youngest ever foreign debutant for Udinese was the legendary Stephen Appiah, a retired 69-time Ghana international who played his first game for Udinese at the age of 17 years, 1 month and 18 days.
David Pejičić is a footballer who also played for Torino during his career Juventus. The talented Primorčan was 16 years, 4 months and 18 days old when he made his debut.
As far as all players who have ever played for Udinese are concerned, David Pejicic ranks high in fourth place among the youngest debutants. Only Bruno Dal Bon (1946; 16 years, 3 months, 6 days), Simone Pafundi (2022; 16 years, 2 months, 8 days) and Ermanno Del Zotto (1963; 15 years, 7 months, 12 days) were younger than him.
