Football is the number one sport in Macedonia, closely followed by handball, volleyball, basketball and swimming. In 1994, following the break-up of the former Yugoslavia, the newly independent Macedonia gained a creditable draw in its first ever international, holding reigning European Champions Denmark to a 1-1 stalemate. The national team has also recorded some other noteworthy results, including a 3-2 victory at home to Ireland, and draws away to Turkey (3-3) and England (2-2). These games were all qualifiers for official competitions (European Championship or FIFA World Cup). The most famous Macedonian players - Darko Pancev (Red Star Belgrade, Inter Milan), Ilija Najdoski (Red Star Belgrade), Dragen Kanatiarovski (Red Star Belgrade), Toni Micevski (Hansa Rostock, Germany) and Toni Savevski (AEK Athens) - have all retired. Today's stars are Sasa Ciric (1. FC Nuremberg, Germany) and Gjorgi Hristov (NEC Nijmegen, Holland).
UEFA World Cup Qualifiers
The Union of European Football Associations, almost always referred to by its acronym UEFA is the administrative and controlling body for European association football, futsal and beach soccer. UEFA represents most of the national football associations of Europe, runs national and club competitions in its area, and controls the prize money, regulations and media rights to those competitions. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia transcontinental nations such as Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, and Russia, are members of the UEFA rather than AFC, as are Israel and Cyprus which lie entirely in Asia.
