Not sure if this is a stupid question or not but I've been thinking:

If a former country (now broken off into many different countries) such as the USSR or Yugoslavia had won the World Cup, which modern countries forming those former countries would be able to claim a World Cup victory? Could Slovenia or Monte***** claim to have won a World Cup under Yugoslavia or Uzbekistan or Moldova under the USSR?

Germany had won the World Cup in 2014, did they? They also counted as "West Germany"

World Cup
Appearances 19 (first in 1934)
Best result Champions (1954, 1974, 1990, 2014)


However, Croatia who reached the final in 2018 - wasn't counted as "Yugoslavia"
World Cup
Appearances 5 (first in 1998)
Best result Runners-up (2018)


and therefore I assume the likes of Monte***** will not counted as "Yugosloavia"

It really did: West Germany won the World Cups in 1954, 1974 and 1990, and is still considered as that country in history. Guess it wouldn't be different to the other former countries. But as West and East Germany reunited, the success of the West Germans are counted to Germany.
