Yugoslavia have had to rebuild following the break-up of the team during the Balkan War. They qualified through the play-offs but are tipped to go far in France.

Midfielders Dragan Stojkovic, Vladimir Jugovic, Branko Brnovic and Slavisa Jokanovic are set to form the crux of coach Slobodan Santrac's squad.

Veteran Stoijkovic has revitalised his career at Nagoya Grampus-8 in Japan and returned as national captain for April's friendly against South Korea.

Jugovic has been outstanding for Lazio and Jokanovic is showing good form at Tenerife. But Brnovic will need to recover from the injury that kept him out of the South Korea match.

Goran Djorovic is almost certain to be included in defence alongside sweeper Miroslav Djukic. Dejan Stefanovic has struggled to find a regular first-team place at Sheffield Wednesday, but is versatile enough to warrant a trip to France.

Utility defender Slobodan Komljenovic, journeyman midfielder Miroslav Stevic and teenager Dejan Stankovic are also in the running.

Up front, goals come freely. Predrag Mijatovic scored 14 times in the qualifiers while Aston Villa's Savo Milosevic got 10. AC Milan striker Dejan Savicevic is also back in contention after a long lay-off.

Partizan Belgrade's Ivica Kralj is set to be the first-choice goalkeeper, taking over from Alexsandar Kocic.
