The Yugoslavia national football team represented the Kingdom of Yugoslaviamarker (1920-1941) and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslaviamarker (1946-1992) in association football. It enjoyed a modicum of success in international competition. In 1992, during the Yugoslav wars, the team was suspended from international competition as part of a United Nations sanction. In 1994, when the boycott was lifted, it was succeeded by the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia football team .

History

The first national team was in the kingdom that existed between the two world wars. The Football Federation of what was then the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was founded in Zagrebmarker in 1919 (and admitted into FIFAmarker), and the national team played its first international game in Antwerpmarker in 1920. In 1929, the country was renamed to Yugoslavia and the football association became Fudbalski Savez Jugoslavije and moved its headquarters to Belgrademarker. The national team participated in the 1930 FIFA World Cup and finished in fourth place. The tournament was boycotted by Croatian players due to the moving of the association's headquarters to Belgrade.

The federation and football overall was disrupted by World War II. After the war, a socialist federation was formed and the football federation reconstituted. It was one of the founding members of the UEFA and it organized the 1976 European Championship played in Belgrademarker and Zagrebmarker. The national team participated in eight World Cup, four Euro, and won the Olympic Games football tournament in the 1960 (they also finished second three times and third once).

Dragan Džajić holds the record for the most national team caps at 85, between 1964 to 1979. The best scorer is Stjepan Bobek with 38 goals, between 1946 and 1956.

The under-21 team won the inaugural UEFA U-21 Championship in 1978.

The Yugoslav under-20 team won the FIFA World Youth Championship 1987.

Boycott

With the dissolution of Yugoslavia, the team split up and the remaining team of the Federal Republic of Yugoslaviamarker (FRY) was banned from competing at Euro 92. They had finished top of their qualifying group, but were unable to play in the competition due to the Yugoslav wars. Their place was taken by Denmark, who went on to win the competition. Yugoslavia had also been drawn as the top seed in Group 5 of the European Zone in the qualifying tournament for the 1994 World Cup. FRY was barred from competing, rendering the group unusually weak.

Breakup

After the breakup of Yugoslavia, the FRY consisted of Montenegromarker and Serbiamarker. The national team of Serbia and Montenegro continued under the name Yugoslavia until 2003, when country and team were renamed Serbia and Montenegro. With the independence of Montenegro in 2006, FIFA considers the national team of Serbia to be the successor of Yugoslavia.
