The Soviet team qualified for the World Cup in Italy from a relatively weak group, though they faced some challenges along the way. Perestroika allowed Soviet players to compete internationally for the first time, but this adjustment didn't bring universal happiness. Their campaign began with a loss against Romania, despite Romania missing their star player Hagi. In the following match, they found themselves trailing against the reigning world champions, Argentina, who had suffered a surprise defeat to Cameroon in their first game. Argentina rectified their position, and with Cameroon defeating Romania shortly after, the Soviets' chances seemed bleak. However, in their final match, the Soviet team salvaged some pride by defeating group winners Cameroon 4-0, allowing them to exit the tournament with dignity.
