Football in Europe is absolutely massive and one of the biggest nations when it came to the beautiful game once were Yugoslavia. Some of you won't remember them competing in major tournaments but they used to regularly go deep in both the World Cup (2x 4th placed finishes) and European Championships (2x runners-up), but now they cease to exist. Yugoslavia broke up back in 1992 and split up into 7 countries - Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Slovenia and Kosovo. This shows just how big a country it used to be and they've produced some magnificent footballers over the years, with Croatia in particular excelling in recent years.
Their run to the 2018 World Cup final was their best ever performance at a major tournament and there's exciting times ahead for all of the former Yugoslavia nations as a whole, as the majority of them possess some top players. With it currently being the international break and attention shifting to football around the continent courtesy of the UEFA Nations League it got us thinking - who would feature for Yugoslavia today and just how well would they perform at major tournaments? Well below we've created an XI from the 7 nations which we think looks very strong on paper - have a look and tweet your thoughts into us @FootyAccums!
