Surely you ever thought, the great team that Yugoslavia would have if it still existed. Italy 90, the World Cup last saw a selection of Yugoslavia as such. The terrible war that ravaged the Balkans in the early 90, high bill claimed human lives.

The conflict, Apart from numerous civilian casualties and countless material damage in the affected cities, also it caused a division in the area in many countries. A) Yes, the former Yugoslavia He gave way to Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia and despite not being recognized by the United Nations and have had their own war too late 90, Kosovo.

A sporting level, It took that despite having qualified for the Euro 1992, what were disqualified He propitiated the entry of Denmark to the tournament and eventually, he would be champion of the tournament. After the end of the Balkan War, all nations that made up the former Yugoslav territory, They came to have their own selections, and even though not official, the Kosovars in this century.

The last time he saw Yugoslavia as a team in a World Cup

That team that went to Italy 90 brought together, among others, players like Robert Prosinecki, Pedja Mijatovic, Davor Suker, Boban O Savicevic among many others, something that only a few years later, and it would be impossible. The team that indeed, he eliminated Spain, was the last combination of Yugoslavia was in World.

After the absence in USA 94 for the war, we could see in France 98 the first selection of Croatia was going to be fourth in that tournament. curiously 20 years later, he would be runner-up to the French in Russia 2018.

And the Balkan player has always had a very desirable profile in European football for its easy adaptation and language learning and characterized as technical players and fine stylists with the ball. As always politics and other social issues and ethnic course, influence but do not tell me that for a moment have not imagined a Yugoslav selection. It sure would be great to see you play.
