Željko Kalac (-shˈʒɛʎkɔ ˈkalatshr; born 16 December 1972) is a retired Australian football (soccer) goalkeeper. Standing at 2.02m, Kalac is one of the world's tallest professional goalkeepers.

Kalac's preferred playing number (when not the conventional number 1) is 18 and has generally worn this number when playing for Australia. However, when he joined AC Milan in 2005, number 18 was already claimed by Marek Jankulovski, who joined at the same time, and so he chose number 16. When he transferred to Kavala, number 18 was also taken, so he settled for number 60.
