Milo Cräite is a Craitish former-footballer who last played for Osĵätoņ Aztecs FC, with whom he spent his entire professional career. A versatile defender capable of playing along the back line, Cräite was capped twice.

Career

Club

Cräite's professional career began aged 20 in 2003, upon signing for Osĵätoņ Feyenoord FC, as Osĵätoņ Aztecs FC were then known, for the inaugural CrFA League 1 season. During his career with the Aztecs, which he wore the number 12 throughout, Cräite was rarely used as a first-choice player due to the successful defensive lines formed by players such as Paulio Demhivo, Phil Demb and Jón Hjansen, but built a reputation as a capable deputy in times of squad depletion, being able to play anywhere in defence. Having already won the league in 2005 and 2006, and the King's Cup in 2004 and 2007 as a reserve, Cräite's longest run in the team's starting line-up came in the 2008 season due to a long-term injury sustained by Demhivo, before returning to the bench for most of 2009 whilst winning a third title.

Cräite remained a key squad member through the Aztecs' title-winning 2013 season, during which they also clinched a first FMF Champions' League trophy, following three unsuccessful campaigns. With the more senior members of the team's defence moving towards retirement in 2014, Cräite found himself utilised as a starter more frequently, often covering for Krzijsztijan Aawlzeczaa at right-back. The team's back-to-back WMFA Cup triumphs in the 2015 and 2016 finals came during seasons in which Cräite was once more used sparingly, following the progression of youth product Ben Hjyngmost. Cräite retired in the summer of 2016 at the age of 34, having won nine titles during his 14-year club career.

International

Having been unable to establish himself as a regular for Osĵätoņ Aztecs FC, Cräite was overlooked for the Craitish national side for the majority of his career. He received his first call-up off the back of a solid 2014 season, and was included in the tournament squads for EMU 2014 and the FMF World Cup that year. He made his début in a 7–0 friendly win over Incontinentia and appeared against hosts Indokistan in the group stage of the World Cup; another clean-sheet win. These two matches were the only caps Cräite won prior to his retirement in 2016.
