What kind of sick question is this?
He was a bonus in the qualifiqaitons for the euro and world cup, but don't overlook the fact that becaouse of him A?imovi? didn't play. I am sure we would get through even without Zahovi?, becaouse Katanec knew how to motivate his players.
We'll never know that, will we? The fact is, he played his best games for our NT, specially in Euro 2000 qualifiers and in Euro 2000 itself, as well as in some games in WC 2002 qualifiers. In these games he gave everything, he scored the most goals and most important ones and he did this having incompetent forwards like Osterc at his side. His role in the competitions I mentioned was extremely important.
Acimovic was a youngster in Euro 2000 qualifiers, he wasn't half a player that he is now.
And don't get me started on Korea, he tottaly embaresed his team and country with his idiotic behaviour, he was substituted (unfairly) but that didn't gave him the right to attack his coach and insult him and his family. We would probalby get through to the next round if it wouldnt of been for Zaho.
Who said anything about Korea? Zaho was my favourite NT player before Korea, but after that, I don't want him anywhere near our NT again. However, that doesn't mean he wasn't our most important player for a long time and that so far, he is the best player ever to play for our NT and will remain so for quite some time.
