|| Until 2003, Serbia & Montenegro
played international football as Yugoslavia.

into memory as the eventual champions Uruguay
crushed them 6-1.
||In 1950, Yugoslavia were eliminated in the
group round despite two wins. In 1958 they
reached the quarter-finals, where they lost
1-0 to Germany. They took revenge on Germany
in 1962 with a 1-0 defeat, but the Czechs
proved too strong for them in the semi-final.
|| In 1974 Yugoslavia crashed out of the second
round, in 1990 exited in the quarter-finals.
In 1998 the Yugoslavs found their match in
the last sixteen when Holland beat them 2-1.
