For all the wealth of talented players available to the national team during this era, the 1980s was a decade of chronic underachievement for Yugoslavia. Qualification for major international tournaments was achieved just twice with both the 1982 World Cup and 1984 European Championship campaigns ending at the group stage with Yugoslavia making little impression on either tournament.

The disappointments of the 1980s was caused in significant part by the gradual falling apart of Yugoslavia and the rise of the national identity of the individual nations within the Federation. Political issues aside, the next generation of gifted players - the winners of the 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship - would surely have achieved great things in that famous blue shirt had the status quo remained.
