Zvonko "Toni" Kurbos, better known as Tony Kurbos (born 20 October 1960) is a retired Slovenian-German football player who was a prolific striker, scoring almost 100 goals in his relatively short career.

He is perhaps most famous for scoring a hat-trick against Barcelona on Camp Nou, eliminating them in the first round of 1984 European competition with Metz, something that has been described in British Guardian as the biggest European football upset ever.

In that same year, Kurbos assisted and scored in the extra time of the Coupe de France final. In front of 45.000 spectators Metz won the match against Monaco 2-0, claiming their first major trophy ever.
