Vladimír Šmicer (born 24 May 1973) is a retired Czech footballer who played as an attacking midfielder for Liverpool between 1999 to 2005. Smicer made a total of 184 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 19 goals, before departing to Bordeaux.
Gerard Houllier signed Smicer from French Club Lens in July 1999 for £4,200,000. He was given the iconic number 7 shirt, which had just been vacated by Steve McManaman. He made his debut for Liverpool on 7 August 1999 against Sheffield Wednesday in a 2-1 win. His first goal came on 15 January 2000 scoring a 71st minute winner against Watford having came off the bench in the 62nd minute.
Smicer's finest moment came in the 2005 Champions League Final against AC Milan. Having been left out of the starting line up, an injury to Harry Kewell meant that he came on in the 22nd minute. Smicer was part of the comeback, bringing the score back to 3-2 in the 56th minute, after Steven Gerrard had scored 2 minutes previous. With the game having to be decided on penalties, Smicer scored Liverpool's third penalty, which proved to be the winning one after Jerzy Dudek saved Andriy Shevchenko's attempt. This was his final game in a Liverpool shirt, as he moved onto French club Bordeaux on a free transfer on 13 June 2005.
