The 1990 World Cup was the final major championship contested by the Soviet Union under this banner and it proved a disappointing finale for a nation with such a rich history in the international arena.

Coach Valeri Lobanovsky's squad had moved on considerably from the one that finished as runners-up in the European Championship two years earlier. There remained a strong Kiev presence but now a substantial number of the squad like Dasayev, Khidiyatullin, Aleinkov, and Zavarov played their club football in the west. Most of the domestic-based players were plotting their own departures that summer too which explained a lack of focus around the campaign.

Even taking into account the strength of the group the Soviets were drawn into, performances were poor and early elimination was confirmed after successive 2-0 defeats to Romania and Argentina. Some little pride was restored with a 4-0 win over group winners Cameroon.
