Well, i have to say that Liverpool and Dinamo Zagreb are clubs that i supported all my life, after last nights game(Dinamo Zagreb-Malmo) Dinamo has qualified for the Champions League after 12 long years.
The last time Dinamo played the Champions League was in season 1999/2000, after a successful 98/99 season where Dinamo got 8 pts. in Group stage after winning the likes of Porto, Ajax(at Amsterdam arena) and drawing to Olympiakos and Ajax at home( stadium called Maksimir). The season of 99/00 was starting and Dinamo with the likes of : Ladić(CRO 1. goalie), Bišćan( ahhhh you all know this fella), Šokota( later Porto, Benfica), Štefulj, Jurić, Sedloski, Mujčin, Prosinečki(played for Barca, Real Madrid and Red Star Belgrade when they won the CL), Jurčić(current Dinamo coach), Banović, Šimić(Inter Milan, Milan), Tokić, Rukavina, Šabić, Tomas, Mikić, Kozniku, Mikulenas, Cvitanović(best scorer of the CRO national league) was a very good team. Dinamo played the Scum in their first game and played 0:0 on Old Trafford, at the end ot that stage Dinamo had 5 pts.
After that year Dinamo didnt play the CL for 12 years, but didnt stop producing players and earned a spot for being the top 5 in Europe in producing talented players. Dinamo also produced and nurtured(some players they bought when they were young, or established players that they sold on) players that made impact in strong leagues like: Ivica Olic, Niko Kranjcar, Vedran Ćorluka, Luka Modrić, Ognjen Vukojević, Eduardo Da Silva, Mario Mandzukic,Dejan Lovren, etc.
