Lets not get into this debate - who was better and stuff. I wanted to get some answers (opinions rather) of why Yugo and then Serb football, has never had teh achievemnets of all other team sports you practice there. And this one, I believe, is linked to other questions - how come you actually do have so much success and indeed world and olimpic titles in team sports; how come you have (almost) zip in individual; amd then the football question.
What I meant with all other countries example is that all of them had at leats one big thing, relativel speaking. Greece is Euro Champs, Bulgaria, Croatia and Turkey have played semifinals of teh World Cup the last three of them. Now, I am not saying directly these four are better in football than you, but if you take the two examples (Your success in team sports v. Your success in football AND your success in football v. other neibouring countries own stuff, which countries are not even close to yoru success in team sports in general (Croatia excluded as I am not aware of such rediculous sports liek water polo and handball recent history to know who won what
) ) then I hope my question becomes clearer.
I have just came back from a trip in Beograd and asked the same question to at least 4 guys, my age. And no one gave me a very satisfying answer. I think team sports success coudl be explained with your national mentality (narodopsihologia) to certain extend but then football comes and I have no clue.
Anyway ... we shall beat you in Sofia anyhow.
PS I still cant believe you are so interested in such rediculous sports liek handball. I wasin my hotel room to rest for few hours on Sat, I thik, and State Channel 2 was showing LIVE Brazil-Quatar!!! This aint possible. You must be kidding.
