The end of Yugoslavia as we knew it came in 1992 which meant its appearance at the World Cup two years earlier was the tournament that brought down the curtain on a proud historical record of participation at eight World Cups and four European Championships. Yugoslavia qualified for that 1990 tournament unbeaten after topping a tough group ahead of Scotland and France. Now they travelled to Italy as one of the competition?s dark horses thanks to a squad of some considerable talent. Creative midfield playmaker Dragan Stojkovic was the unquestionable star of the team and his talents were complemented by players like the skilled attacking midfielder Safet Susic, composed deep-lying anchor Srecko Katanec and free-scoring sweeper Davor Jozic. As if the established talent wasn?t good enough in its own right, this squad also boasted a new generation of up and coming players who would prove to be even better than the last - footballers of the calibre of Prosinecki, Pancev, Jarni and Savicevic. Yugoslavia qualified for the tournament?s knockout stages as runners-up to eventual winners West Germany. Stojkovic scored both goals in a 2-1 extra-time Round of 16 win over Spain to take the Yugoslavs into the Quarter Finals, but further progress was ended by an unfortunate penalty shoot out defeat to Argentina.
