Obviously Denmark took their place and won It, I wonder how Yugoslavia would have faired... Croatia went on to finish 3rd at the World Cup 6 years later.

The actual reason I got thinking about this was that Red Star Belgrade won the European Cup and subsequent Intercontinetal Cup in 1991. There was obviously a real talent around Yugoslavia at the time, you kind of have to wonder where they as a footballing nation and their clubs might have been now had the War not split it all up?!
Weirdly I was thinking about a similar thing related to this subject earlier before seeing this thread.

Famously, Denmark won the 1992 European Championships despite not qualifying, having finished 2nd to Yugoslavia in the group.

Logically, if Yugoslavia had been in the tournament they would have stood a very good chance of winning themselves

If the war had been delayed another year or two and that had happened, would the ensuing national celebration in Yugoslavia been enough to prevent the break-up and resulting war?

Another thing I remember in the Panini Euro 92 sticker album they had Denmark in as a Spare team and Italy as well. I assume Italy as the second best runner up would have been offered the place had Denmark turned it down?

I think a united Yugoslavia would have done very well in the mid 1990s, as shown by Red Star Belgrade winning the 1991 European Cup and Croatia reaching the semi finals of France 98 with so many great players. They would still be a strong force now, with Serbia and Croatia having both qualified for the World Cup and Bosnia and Slovenia also qualifying for recent World Cups. There are also a few players who were born in Yugoslavia who represent other countries after moving there because of the war such as Xherdan Shaqiri and Adnan Januzaj.

The club sides have also suffered - the likes of Red Star Belgrade, Partizan Belgrade and Dynamo Zagreb will never reach the heights that they did before the war.

Could've been a great side today, but the Balkans is full of uber-nationalist arseholes, so a no-goer, even though Croats, Serbs & Bosniaks all speak the same Serbian language.
They're often referred to as "Balk*nts" for a reason. Their k*ntishness was of course exploited by NATO & the EU.

But they're all into sports & produce a lot of good competitors considering their small populations. Even little Montenegro have proved to be a tough outfit in WC & Euro Qualifiers.

I know it wouldn't happen for very obvious reasons, but it would almost in footballing terms be in their best interests to have a Balkans football league rather than each countries own separate league.

Someone did say that the club teams won't ever be good enough to challenge and of course they won't. You only have to see how poorly clubs like Dinamo Zagreb and Maribor get on in Europe to tell that the Leagues just aren't good enough or competitive enough.

I'd move over there for a year just to follow a Balkans league, what chaos that would bring every match

Well it did used to be the Yugoslavian League. No idea what the crowd trouble was like back in those days. If such a league existed again I would probably keep an eye on Red Star Belgrade. Not sure about the massively over sized white panel on their kit though.

According to Danny Dyer, 'sex' was involved. International Football Factories was on London Live the other day. If you can look past the shots of a total geezah stressin' his canister in a moody dibdab going over to the dark side etc. it's almost worth watching.
