If Yugoslavian countries re-united, would the national team be top 2?

I say easily. Croatia were underdogs in the World Cup, but they were world class. Now imagine this midfield:
Pjanic - Matic - Modric
bench: Rakatic, Mil-Savic, Kovacic

Strikers: Jovic, Mandzukic, Dzeko
Wingers: Perisic, Visca
Defence: Kolisinac, Kolarov, Corluka, Jedvaj
GK: Subasic, Begovic
