Pančev played in 1990 World Cup for Yugoslavia and scored two goals in the 4–1 win over the UAE in the first round. It proved to be the only international tournament he played in, due to the ban on Yugoslavia participating in Euro 1992 because of the war in Bosnia at the time, although by the end of the European qualifying group stages, he was the top marksman on the continent with ten goals for the group qualifying stage.
In 1994 he made up part of the inaugural Macedonia's football team as the star player.
In November 2003, to celebrate UEFA's Jubilee, he was selected as the Golden Player of Macedonia by the Football Federation of the Republic of Macedonia as their most outstanding player of the past 50 years.
