Ilija Petković is a retired Serbian footballer.

He started playing football for Dinara Knin. Petković's professional playing days were divided between OFK Beograd where he spent over 16 seasons becoming one of the club's all-time best players and a 3-year stint with the French outfit Troyes AC.

During his career, he was probably the best right winger in country, and one of the best in the world, although in his club he played mainly on the left wing with Bogdan Turudija on the right side. But in NT he was right winger, since Džajić was undisputed on the left side. His explosiveness was, by far, his greatest weapon.

He enjoyed an impressive debut in the national colors on April 24, 1968. Yugoslavia was hosting France in the second leg of the 1968 European Football Championship quarterfinal. The score from the first leg eighteen days earlier in Marseille was 1-1 and the qualification for the final four tournament in Italy was at stake. Petković needed only 3 minutes to score his first goal in the national team, before adding another one on the 33 minute mark. It was a dream debut for the 22-year-old en route to 5-1 thrashing of the French in front of a raucous home crowd at Belgrade's Partizan stadium. He played 43 games for national team, scoring 6 goals.
