Nope, mate... "nikogda" means "never"
"nikogo" means "no one"

If you switch "nikogda" to "nikogo" then it would be "you won't beat anyone", "you will never win anyone"

But on the other hand, it depends on language you are translating from. Some slavic languages have similar (phonetically) words but with different meaning, e.g "pravo" in serbian means "straight" while in russian it means "to the right", or in czech language "fragrance" means "vonný" but at the same time "von" in russian means "stinky"

I'm not sure it's russian, in serbo-corat it means :

You don't win anyone.

Nikog means none. ;)

Nikogda probably translates to nikad.

You really could've said Serbian or Croatian instead of serbo-croat :thmbdown:

Ivo, enough of that drama. I've stated only the fact, no harm intended.
In former Yugoslavia the language was called serbocroatian, so it's not the West being ignorant.
I really don't understand why people try to change hystorical facts all the time. :confused:

I'm definately not an expert :D but I know it was La Gazzetta who asked a Ukrainian to translate 'Non Vincete Mai' into his language, and a Nigerian to translate 'Mai stati in B' for the Sheva/Martins showdown...:cool: Hope that can help
