Challenges The Josip Skoblar Challenge


Recommended Posts


Josip "Joško" Skoblar (born 12 March 1941) is a Croatian former football player and manager. He was primarily a forward, and also capable of playing on both wings.

Skoblar was born in Privlaka near Zadar (at the time in Banovina of Croatia). He started his career with NK Zadar (1957–58). He got spotted there by OFK Beograd goalie Perica Radenković who was serving his mandatory army stint in Zadar. Radenković recommended Skoblar to club management and the 19-year-old was soon on his way to Belgrade. With OFK Beograd Skoblar won the Yugoslav Cup in 1962 and 1966. In Germany he played for Hannover 96 (1967–70). In 57 games in Bundesliga, he scored 30 goals.

He was willing to play in Marseilles, but the chairman of Hannover didn't want to lose such a player. Marcel Leclerc, chairman of Marseilles, went to Hannover on a quick journey and came back with the player, it was the beginning of a great adventure with Marseilles. The player was applauded at the airport by many fans.

In France, Skoblar played for Olympique de Marseille and was three time top goalscorer in Ligue 1 (1971–73). Skoblar won the European Golden Boot in 1971 for 44 goals in Ligue 1, he still remains as the best scorer in a season in Ligue 1. With Olympique, he won the French league title in 1971, and French league and cup title in 1972. OM fans refer to him as "l'Aigle Dalmate", "l'Aigle Dalmate"/"l'aigle des Dalmates" (The Dalmatian Eagle), or "Monsieur Goal" (Mister Goal). He left l'OM after the arrival of two Brazilians Jairzinho and Paulo César.

For Yugoslavia Skoblar played between 1961 and 1967. In 32 games for Yugoslavia, he scored 11 goals. Skoblar participated in World Cup 1962. Skoblar scored one goal, and Yugoslavia finished in the fourth place. He first played for the national team on 7 May 1961, for a Friendly match against Hungary. He ended his international career on 7 October 1967 against West Germany, before the end of the Euro 68 qualification competition. The Yugoslavia national football team ended 2nd of the Euro 1968 without him.


Challenge Set-Up:

  • Load up France and take charge of Marseille.
  • You must sign a Croatian striker who will become your new “Skoblar”
  • At Marseille you must win at least 2x Ligue 1, 1x Trophee des Champions and 1x Coupe de France.
  • Your new "Skoblar" must become the Ligue 1 topscorer for three years in a row.
  • He must also score more than 44 goals in a single Ligue 1 season. Also, he must score more than 305 goals in his club career.

  • Own Formations only
  • Only SI databases.
  • No unlockables unless earned on the save

So, there you go. Another one of the greatest player challenges. The 44 goals in single season will be tough to do i think. Let me know what you think.
