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

    They've always had good teams,and it still shows in the balkanized states.If a complete nation could have survived after the fall of communism it is entirely possible they'd compete for major honours.
