Беше тоа на денешен ден (8 декември) пред точно 25 години, кога фудбалерите на Црвена звезда како актуелни европски шампиони се здобија со правото да играаат за светската фудбалска круна. „Црвено-белите“, кои имаа двајца Македонци за столбови во екипата, Панчев како предводник на нападот и големиот борец Најдовски како голем борец во одбраната, против себе го имаа Коло Коло, но чилеанскиот клуб во ниту еден момент не делуваше како достоен ривал за тогашниот југословенски гигант.
Владимир Југовиќ со два гола ја најави победата, а конечните 3-0 ги постави нашиот Дарко Пачев, за тотална еуфорија не само на стадионот во Токио, туку и на целата територија на поранешна Југославија.

Top 10 Muhammad Ali Best Knockouts
Muhammad Ali is one of those rare athletes who transcended his sport. He was more than a boxer, he was a cultural icon.
But he made his name as a boxer, and in his career from his debut on Oct. 29, 1960, in Louisville, Ky., against Tunney Hunsaker until his sad, final bout as a faded nearly 40-year-old, he fought the best of his era.
He was 11-3 with eight knockouts against men who are in the International Boxing Hall of Fame during that 21-year career in which he went 56-5 with 37 knockouts and held the heavyweight title on three separate occasions.
He was 2-1 with one knockout against his greatest rival, Joe Frazier.
He was 3-0 with knockouts against George Foreman, Archie Moore and Bob Foster, 2-1 against Ken Norton, 2-0 with two knockouts against both Floyd Patterson and Sonny Liston, and was 0-1 and was knocked out by Larry Holmes.
Without question, though, he participated in many of the most memorable bouts in history.
These are my choices for Ali’s 10 most significant bouts:
The 1991 European Cup Final was a football match held at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari, Italy, on 29 May 1991, that saw Red Star Belgrade of Yugoslavia defeat Marseille of France in a penalty shoot-out. After normal time and extra time could not separate the two sides, the match was to be decided on penalty kicks. Manuel Amoros’s miss for the French side proved crucial, as Red Star held their nerve to win their first European Cup.
Red Star arrived in Italy unusually early, on Thursday, 23 May 1991, six full days ahead of the final. The team set up base in the town of Monopoli, 40 kilometres (25 mi) south-east of Bari. There they stayed in Il Melograno Hotel and trained at the facilities of A.C. Monopoli. Due to a lot of interest from richer European clubs already being raised for the future services of young Red Star players, the club management tried to ensure its footballers were fully focused on the task at hand. The players were placed in semi-quarantine immediately upon arrival in Italy, which meant being separated from wives and girlfriends without the ability to receive incoming phone calls in hotel rooms, though able to make outgoing calls.
Over the coming days, the club also organized for a large entourage consisting of former players and coaches, friends of the club, etc. to arrive in Bari in order to watch Red Star in its very first European Cup final. Therefore, club legends Rajko Mitić and Dragoslav Šekularac, notable former players Srđan Mrkušić, Stanislav Karasi, club’s former coach Miša Pavić along with Serbian celebrities and public personalities such as Ljuba Tadić, Ivan Bekjarev, Bora Đorđević, etc. made their way to Italy.
