BERLIN, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- Ante Rebic has extended his running contract with Eintracht Frankfurt, the Bundesliga club announced in an official statement on Friday.

The 24-year-old striker penned a contract extension and will stay with the "Eagles" until June 2022.

"Ante is certainly one of the most positive surprises of the World Cup and we must make no secret of the fact that his performances aroused desires. It speaks for Eintracht Frankfurt that we have managed to keep such a strong player," Frankfurt's sporting director Fredi Bobic said.

Rebic joined Frankfurt in the summer 2016 and made 57 appearances, providing 12 goals and five assists.

"Ante fits perfectly into the system of our new trainer Adi Huetter. It was important to us that we keep his qualities in our ranks. Everyone who is keeping their fingers crossed for Eintracht Frankfurt can look forward to this great news," Bobic added.

The striker has large shares in beating German giants Bayern Munich in the German Cup final in May.

The "Eagles" will face Freiburg for their Bundesliga season opener on August 25.
