The Former Yugoslavia National Football Team

The Former Yugoslavia National Football Team

Out of the countries that were part of the former Yugoslavia, Croatia has definitely been the most successful one when it comes to football. At any moment you can go to 1xbet.co.ke – betting site in Kenya and place your wagers on the Croatian national football team.

Yet, it is fair to speculate that a modern and hypothetical Yugoslavian national football team would be a serious force to be reckoned with.

The former Yugoslavian national football team was quite successful in its own right. The first major football tournament in which they participated was the 1930 FIFA World Cup. The betting site 1xBet Kenya allows punters in this country to wager on this tournament.

The team had an incredible achievement during that competition. Specifically, they defeated none other than the Brazilian national football team.

Olympic Success

The Yugoslavian national football team felt quite comfortable playing in the Olympic football competitions. The website 1xBet offers all sports betting football in many championships, including, of course, the football tournament at the Summer Olympics.

The team won silver medals in both the 1948 and 1952 Summer Olympics. In the 1952 games, the only team that they were unable to defeat was the legendary Hungarian Golden Team, who won the tournament. The 1xBet website can also be visited by those wishing to place wagers on the national football team of Hungary.

The Brazilians of Europe

During the mid 20th century, the teams that were most attractive to watch were those from South America. However, the Yugoslavians played with a similar style to the squads from that part of the world. This meant that their style of play was based on constant attack, pressure and a high playing speed. For this reason, they were dubbed as the “Brazilians of Europe”. You can find profitable live betting only on 1xbet.co.ke/live, which can also be taken advantage of while wagering on the Brazilian national team.

In fact, they were so good that they won the gold medal in the 1960 Summer Olympics. They defeated Denmark in the final of that tournament for a final score of 3-1, which was played on the 10th of September. The goals were scored by:

  • Bora Kostić;
  • Željko Matuš;
  • Milan Galić;
  • and Flemming Nielsen.

The team also obtained interesting results in the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Euro. You can make profitable betting only on 1xBet on those competitions in live and pre-match formats.

They participated in a total of eight editions of the FIFA World Cup. Their best result was a fourth place obtained in 1930 and 1962. In the case of the UEFA Euro, they participated in it a total of four times, finishing in second place in the years 1960 and 1968.
