Today we travel to the Balkans and talk about the best five players who graduated at the Dinamo Zagreb youth academy.

Dinamo Zagreb is the best football team in Croatia and a regular competitor in Europe over the past 25 years. They reached the Europa League round of 16 this season but were defeated 3-1 on aggregate against Benfica, after the extra time.

The Blues have arguably the best youth academy on the Balkan Peninsula. They’ve produced some of the brightest talents in the game, that went on to become world class football players and win many Champions League titles.

Andrej Kramaric, Alen Halilovic, Ante Coric, Filip Benkovic, Tin Jedvaj, and Sime Vrsaljko are some of the names that recently graduated at Dinamo Zagreb’s youth academy and already made their big moves to the Top 5 leagues in Europe.

And while they are still young and have a long way to go in the game, we’ve listed the best ever players produced by Dinamo – some real footballing icons in both Croatia and Europe.
