The likes of Kampl and Jovetic would be candidates now too.

Handy enough I'd say:

Croatia for example have the midfielders: Pjanic, Modric, Perisic,Rakitic,
They also have Mandzukic

Didn't the 1990 team have some sort of nickname? The Brazil of the Balkans or something like that.

Diego & co certainly treated them as if they were Brazil in the quarters after knocking out the real Brazil in the previous round.

Whatever about Yugoslavia, what about the pick of players the USSR had?

It was mostly Ukrainians that played for the CCCP in those days

The break up must have been a Godsend to the fringe players from the other states who would never have seen the international stage.
