Yugoslavia Retro Football Shirt 

It is the last football shirt worn by Yugoslavia in an international competition: the 1990 World Cup in Italy.
The Yugoslav squad included the same players who won the under-20 World Cup in Chile in 1987: Davor Šuker, Robert Prosinečki, Darko Pancev, Dejan Savicevic.
Boban wan't in the squad. He was serving a one-year disqualification due to kicking a Yugoslav federal police officer to defend a Croatian fan.
The star of the national team is the Serbian Dragan Stojkovic, called "Piksi".

The Yugoslav national team was in the group stage against West Germany, Colombia and the United Arab Emirates.
In the first game the Germans score 4 goals for the Yugoslavs. Jozic marks the only goal for the Yugoslavs.
Once again Jozic will score the 1-0 against Colombia, and finally winning 4-1 against the Emirates, Yugoslavia passes the turn.

In the round of 16 the opponent is the Spain of Butragueño, but to shine in that match is the number 10 of the Balkans: Dejan Stojkovic.
The first is a crazy goal: cross in the area, "Piksi" fake the volley, tow the ball deceiving defender and goalkeeper and shots on goal: 1-0. The Spaniards score the goal for the draw with Salinas and go to extra time.
After only three minutes, the second pearl of the Serbian player: free kick from the edge of the box, Stojkovic draws a free-kick that bypasses the barrier and surprises Zubizarreta. 2-0 and Yugoslavia is in the quarterfinals.

The match against Argentina in the quarter-finals is very tense. After the 0-0 in extra time they get to the penalties and, as often happened in the history of football, are the best footballers to fail. Stojkovic misses the first, Maradona and Troglio fail for the Argentineans, but the errors of Brnović and Hadžibegić decree the elimination of Yugoslavia.
It is the last match of the Yugoslavia national football team, which after the fierce war will begin to disintegrate and in 1992 will be banned from the European Championship.

Stojkovic and Savicevic: two numbers 10
At the end of the '80s the Red Star of Belgrade played with two numbers 10 in the field: Stojkovic and Savicevic. The first is who in the club really holds the 10 on the jersey, as well as in the national team, and will be nicknamed in 1990 World Cup as the "Yugoslavian Platini".
In 1989 the two were eliminated in the second round of the Champions Cup in the historic match against AC Milan in Belgrade decided on penalties.
In 1991 in the Champions League final played at the San Nicola di Bari will be Dejan Savicevic who will raise the trophy with the Red Star shirt, while to receive the medal for second place with Olympique Marseille is his ex-mate Dragan Stojkovic.
