On 08/01/1957, the old star of Yugoslavia, Blagoje Marjanović, was asked these three following questions: 1. What players are the bests in the world? 2. How would you select the World’s best XI? 3. Who do you think is the best Yugoslavian player?
Then, Marjanović named the World’s best footballers: Bican(?), Nordhal, Kubala, Puskás, Matthews and di Stéfano.
The names given by Marjanović were some of the best of the decade. However, Bican was listed, but he retired in 1955.
And this is how Marjanović selected his World’s best XI: Grosics – Brozović, Zebec, Happel – Čajkovski, Ocwirk – Matthews, Kubala, di Stéfano, Puskás, Nikolić.
Marjanović considered Stjepan Bobek as the best Yugoslavian.
