    Not to belittle the individual nations but a reason why some regard the UCL better than the World Cup is the recognition of talent from poor nations, a la Eto'o.

    Hypothetically, could a team made up from eastern europe win it?

    First XI (that comes to mind)

    GK: Čech
    RB: Ivanović
    CBs: Vidić, Nastasić
    LB: Kolarov
    CM: Modric
    AM: Mkhitaryan
    LW:Yarmolenko
    RW: Jovetić
    ST: Mandžukić
    ST: Lewandowski

    Subs:

    Szczęsny, Subotić, Piszczek, Džeko, Matić, Škrtel, Rakitić

    Note that a lot of those defenders are Serbians

    I'd say they'd go quarters easy

    blaszczykowski is better than either Jovetic or Yarmolenko IMO.

    No I think that team would still be inferior compared to the top European teams.

    Although I see your point, it's like saying what if Western Europe was a single team? Or what if South America was a single team? Both would be superior to an Eastern European team.

    That's true; probably switch out Mandzukic for Matic to get a 4-2-3-1
