Qualifying for the 2006 World Cup, however, was different. Serbia and Montenegro began the campaign by finishing first with an undefeated record in their qualification group ahead of favourites Spain. The Serbia and Montenegro team also allowed only one goal in the ten matches, the best defensive record of all 51 teams participating in qualification.
Like in 2006, Serbia went into the 2010 FIFA World Cup as the dark horses of the tournament. Key points justifying their potential surprise-team status included a star-studded defense that was composed by Nemanja Vidi, Neven Suboti, Aleksandar Kolarov and Branislav Ivanovi. The captain of Serbia's 2010 World Cup campaign was stalwart Dejan Stankovi, who became the only player to feature in a World Cup having played under three different national names (although he never changed nationality; this was a result of geopolitical events involving the identity of Yugoslavia). In their first tournament as an independent nation, they were to face Ghana, Germany and Australia.

Due to their second position, Yugoslavia saw itself face the Netherlands in the Round of 16. Yugoslavia entered in the match with a sole attacker, but its defensive tactics proved unsuccessful as Dennis Bergkamp put the Netherlands in front in the 38th minute. Immediately following the start of the second half, Yugoslavia pressured the Dutch, who inevitably conceded a header from Slobodan Komljenovi. However, the turning point of this match was a penalty awarded to Yugoslavia after Vladimir Jugovi was fouled in the penalty area. Predrag Mijatovi's shot dazzled Edwin van der Sar, but not the crossbar, and the scoreline remained the same at 11. Such an event demoralized the Yugoslavs, as the Dutch took the initiative. In the late seconds of the game, as everybody was preparing for extra time, Edgar Davids' shot towards the Yugoslav net from a distance of 20 meters and beat goalkeeper Ivica Kralj, to the pure disbelief of the Yugoslav players and fans. This marked the end of Yugoslavia's run in the 1998 World Cup, since there was not much time left to do anything.
Sinia Mihajlovi played 63 matches for the team from 19932003 and managed team in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification
On 31 March 1995, the team recorded its first official win in history, a 10 friendly against Uruguay, simultaneously marking the team's first ever home game, played at Stadion Crvena Zvezda in Belgrade, and the first ever goal scored, courtesy of Savo Miloevi. Slightly more than one year later, the team recorded its first ever win in a World Cup qualifying tournament in its first game in such a tournament, a 31 win over the Faroe Islands. Shortly after, the team also recorded its biggest win in history, once again against the Faroe Islands, 81. Yugoslavia finished second in Group 6, just behind Spain, meaning it had to go through the play-off system in order to qualify. Yugoslavia was paired up with Hungary, and what was believed would be a tough match turned out to be an easy win for Yugoslavia, 71 in Budapest and 50 in Belgrade, for an aggregate score of 121. This was enough to secure Yugoslavia its first ever World Cup appearance as a new country.
Unlucky events forced Yugoslavia out of the tournament, but the team definitely demonstrated its great ability and proved it had a spot among the world's best teams. This was also reflected in the FIFA World Rankings following the 1998 FIFA World Cup, in which Yugoslavia was constantly ranked in the Top 10 for a long period of time.
Dejan Stankovi is Serbian player who won the most trophies. Played in three World Cups and one European Championship
In the Euro 2000 qualifying Georgia national team won one match, drew two and finished bottom of the group with five points. This marked the beginning of a period of decline for Georgian football.

The Lionesses - who have already qualified - fell from top spot when Belgium beat Serbia earlier in the day.
The Georgian Football Federation became a member of both UEFA and FIFA in 1992, enabling Georgia to play competitive matches. The first of these came in September 1994, a 10 defeat to Moldova as part of the qualifiers for Euro 1996. Georgia finished third in their group, ahead of Moldova and Wales, but seven points behind second-placed qualifier Bulgaria.
Attempt missed. Sergei Khizhnichenko (Kazakhstan) right footed shot from outside the box misses to the left. Assisted by Dmitriy Shomko.
Mark Sampson seems to have a real gem on his hands as Carter's link-up play also looked slick, albeit against poor opposition. Her clever flick late on saw Jordan Nobbs volley straight at Estonia's busy goalkeeper.
