Ever since the national team qualified for EURO 2000 and the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan?, football has been the number one sport in Slovenia, but basketball and skiing (formerly Slovenia's number one sport) are also very popular. Qualification for these two finals still ranks as the greatest footballing success in the history of a relatively young nation. Branko Oblak, Danilo Popivoda and Srecko Katanec were all regular features in the national team of the former Yugoslavia and played for various top European teams. All three are currently coaches in Slovenia, but Katanec led the national team to EURO 2000 and the 2002 FIFA World Cup?. Zlatko Zahovic is the top Slovenian player at the moment. He currently plays for Benfica (Portugal), and has also represented FC Porto (Portugal), Olympiakos (Greece) and Valencia (Spain).
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.
