Football is the second most popular sport in Lithuania after basketball. The nation's greatest success at club or international level came in 1987 when FC Zalgiris (at that time representing the USSR) beat South Korea 5-0 to win the football tournament at the XIV World University Games. In 2003, Lithuania has recorded a series of fine results in EURO 2004 qualifiers, including a 1-1 draw in Germany and a 2-0 win over Scotland. Arvydas Janonis, Arminas Narbekovas and Valdas Augustinas Ivanauskas are Lithuania's most famous players. Janonis won the Olympic Football Tournament in 1988 playing for the USSR, Narbekovas was voted player of the year four times in succession - 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988 - and is now the Vice-President of the Lithuanian Football Federation, and Ivanauskas won an Austrian league title with Austria Memphis and was named Lithuania's player of the year in 1990, 1991, 1993 and 1994.
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.
