Slovakia has been competing independently in international football since 1 July 1993. The nation's greatest success so far has been a third-place finish at the European U-19 Championship in Norway, which also secured qualification for the FIFA World Youth Championship UAE 2003. Fourth place at the UEFA European U-21 Championship on home soil secured a slot at the Olympic Football Tournaments Sydney 2000. A number of players and coaches have emerged from the fertile Slovakian breeding grounds. Dr Josef Venglos took on a wide range of positions abroad (Sporting Lisbon, Aston Villa, Fenerbahce Istanbul, Glasgow Celtic) before serving as Slovakian national coach from 1993 to 1995. Jan Popluhár was voted Slovakia's best player of the 20th century and was an active footballer until 1979. Lubomir Moravcik (whose clubs included Bastia, St. Etienne and Glasgow Celtic) isSlovakia's most capped player (79 appearances for Czechoslovakia and Slovakia).
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.
