The Montenegro national football team (Montenegrin: Fudbalska reprezentacija Crne Gore, Фудбалска репрезентација Црне Горе) represents Montenegro in association football and is controlled by the Fudbalski Savez Crne Gore (FSCG), the governing body for football in Montenegro. Montenegro's home ground is Podgorica City Stadium in Podgorica.

Montenegro is one of the world's newest international sides, having come into existence at 2007, following Montenegrin independence (2006).

The first official game Montenegro played was in March 2007, and the first competition that the national team competed in was the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

History

Formation

Following the independence of Montenegro from Serbia and Montenegro, Serbia took Serbia and Montenegro's place in the Euro 2008 qualifying stage, but UEFA had stated that they would be willing to include Montenegro as a late entry, as long as FIFA had ratified a separate Montenegrin Football Association before September 2006, when the qualifying began. However, as of the competition beginning, this had not occurred.[1] In October 2006, Montenegro was granted provisional membership of UEFA, with a debate on full membership scheduled at a full UEFA Congress in January 2007.[2] Montenegro's first FIFA World Ranking was joint 199th place, the last place on the list. This is because they had a score of 0 when the rankings were worked out.

First matches

On 26 January 2007, the Montenegro FA was granted full membership of UEFA.[3] Soon after that, the team played its first FIFA-recognized friendly match against Hungary on 24 March 2007 at Stadion Pod Goricom in Podgorica. Montenegrin team won with result 2–1 in front of 12,000 spectators. Striker Mirko Vučinić scored the country's first ever goal in the 62nd minute.[4][5] On 31 May 2007, Montenegro was admitted as FIFA's 208th member.[6]

Montenegro's first coach was SR Montenegro-born Zoran Filipović. Hailed by both players and press, his record was rather positive, with 23 matches played, eight victories, eight draws and seven defeats. Filipović, however, left the Balkan newcomers in January 2010 when his contract expired. During his time, Montenegro rose to 73rd position in the FIFA rankings.

Montenegro played at the 2007 Kirin Cup, but finished in last place behind Japan and Colombia, losing to both teams.

On 26 March 2008, Montenegro recorded one of its best played matches with a 3–1 win over Norway. At the same time, the nation recorded its then-highest scoring game.

First competitive matches

On 6 September 2008, Montenegro played their first ever World Cup qualifier, at Podgorica City Stadium, against Bulgaria in Podgorica. As expected, Bulgaria took an early lead in the 11th minute with a goal from Stiliyan Petrov. Mirko Vučinić scored in the 61st minute to make the game 1–1. Igor Burzanović took a penalty and made it 2–1 in the 82nd minute. As Montenegrin fans were about to celebrate a historical first competitive win, a last-minute equalizer from Blagoy Georgiev spoiled the party. In their next match on 10 September, they achieved another notable result when they held the Republic of Ireland to a 0–0 draw.

Another near-upset came in a narrow 2–1 loss against Italy. Despite Alberto Aquilani's early strike, Vučinić quickly equalized eleven minutes later. Aquilani then scored again ten minutes later. However, their second match against Italy in the two-game series ended 2–0 in favor of the world champions. And another disappointment came when the team could only draw 0–0 against Georgia and went on to draw 2–2 against Cyprus after being two goals down. On 5 September 2009, Montenegro took an early lead against Bulgaria in Sofia with Stevan Jovetić putting them 1–0 up, only for Bulgaria to score four goals in succession to win 4–1. Montenegro, then eliminated, drew their next game with Cyprus 1–1, who were also eliminated. Montenegro would finally register their first competitive win, beating Georgia 2–1. They then held the Republic of Ireland to another 0–0 draw, this time at Croke Park. They ultimately finished fifth in the group with nine points, just below Cyprus on goal differential. Though they failed to qualify for the World Cup, Montenegro had performed better than expected in their first competitive international matches. The next month, they reached one of their highest positions in the FIFA rankings, in 73rd place.

Golden era

UEFA Euro 2012 qualification

During the UEFA Euro 2012 qualification campaign, the team recorded further success. They opened their campaign with a 1–0 victory over Wales, Mirko Vučinić scoring the only goal. A few days later, the team defeated Bulgaria in Sofia 1–0. The next month, the team defeated Switzerland 1–0 by taking the lead in the second half and then recorded a 0–0 draw in London against England. On 4 June 2011, Montenegro played against Bulgaria. Switzerland tied with England 2–2, with England narrowly avoiding defeat. Although Montenegro had a bright start, the Bulgarians were able to keep it 1–1. Radomir Đalović scored for Montenegro early in the second half, but Ivelin Popov scored minutes later, keeping Montenegro in second. Montenegro and England were at the time tied on points, but due to a larger goal difference, England remained ahead.

After that, Montenegro played against Wales in Cardiff. Montenegro were beaten 2–1 (Steve Morison and Aaron Ramsey for Wales, Stevan Jovetić for Montenegro). They were still second in Group G, but Switzerland closed the gap between them to only three points.

In June 2011 FIFA rankings, Montenegro recorded their highest FIFA world ranking of 16th.

On 7 October, Montenegro played its seventh match in the Euro 2012 qualifiers which was against England in Podgorica. They came back from 2–0 down to draw 2–2 after England's Wayne Rooney was sent off. At the same time, Wales beat Switzerland 2–0, securing a play-off position for Montenegro, a historic achievement putting the team two matches away from qualifying for Euro 2012. In their last match in Euro 2012 qualifiers, Montenegro lost 2–0 to Switzerland in Basel. On 13 October, the draw for the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying play-offs was held in Kraków, Poland. As a result of the draw, Montenegro played against the Czech Republic, eventually losing 3–0 on aggregate and failing to qualify.

2014 FIFA World Cup qualification

Montenegro was drawn in Group H in the qualifiers, along with England, Poland, Ukraine, Moldova and San Marino.

In their first match, Montenegro played against Poland in Podgorica. Jakub Błaszczykowski scored from a penalty kick for Poland in the fifth minute, but Montenegro came back with goals by Nikola Drinčić in the 26th minute and Mirko Vučinić in the first half's injury time following a corner kick. In the second half, Adrian Mierzejewski scored an equalizer for Poland in the 55th minute, the game's final goal in a 2–2 draw.

On 11 September, Montenegro played against San Marino in Seravalle. In a very one-sided match, Montenegro won 0–6,[7] the biggest win for Montenegro since its formation. Montenegro then proceeded to beat Ukraine 0–1 away in Kiev,[8] the sole goal scored by Dejan Damjanović. In their last match in 2012, Montenegro faced San Marino in Podgorica on 14 November, a comfortable 3–0 win.

Montenegro played their fifth qualifier match against Moldova in Chișinău on 22 March 2013, winning 0–1 through Mirko Vučinić's lone goal. After that, Montenegro returned to Podgorica to play the second-placed England. The outcome was a 1–1 draw the goals coming from Wayne Rooney in the sixth minute and from Dejan Damjanović.

Whilst leading their World Cup qualifying group, Montenegro hosted Ukraine on 7 June 2013. They suffered their first defeat, losing 0–4. The match also saw Montenegro finish the match with nine men after Vladimir Volkov and Savo Pavićević were sent off. Their last four matches yielded just a single point, a 1–1 draw in Poland. Their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign finished with a 2–5 home defeat to Moldova, finishing third in the group behind England and Ukraine.

Slump and revival

UEFA Euro 2016 qualification

On 23 February 2014 in Nice, Montenegro was drawn for qualification in Group G alongside Russia, Sweden, Austria, Moldova and Liechtenstein. Though they opened their campaign with a 2–0 win over Moldova, their qualifying hopes evaporated after only drawing 0–0 away at Liechtenstein, before losing 1–0 away to Austria and drawing 1–1 at home to Sweden.

On 27 March 2015, Montenegro's home match against Russia was abandoned after 67 minutes due to crowd violence. During the match, Russian left-back Dmitri Kombarov was hit by a projectile. The original score was 0–0 and Russia missed a penalty moments before the match was abandoned. Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was hit by a flare, causing a second 33-minute delay.[9] The abandoned match was ruled a 3–0 win in Russia's favour.

Montenegro finished fourth at the end of the campaign and slumped to 95th on the FIFA ranking-list.

2018 FIFA World Cup qualification

Montenegro participated in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification and placed with Poland, Denmark, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Romania. Three teams, Poland, Denmark and Romania were participants in the UEFA Euro 2016, but Montenegro proved to be successful at their opening accounts, drawing Romania 1–1 away, demolished Kazakhstan 5–0 at home and defeated Denmark 1–0 right away. However, Montenegro shocked everyone by losing 2–3 to Armenia in away match despite leading 2–0. With this defeat, Montenegro lost its confidence, and continued to be defeated 1–2 right at home soil against Poland. Montenegro immediately returned to the race by beating Armenia 4–1, Kazakhstan 3–0 and eliminated Romania with a 1–0 victory; but their two defeats at the hand of the Danes and Poles in their last encounters denied Montenegro's chance to qualify for the FIFA World Cup.

FIFA rankings

Montenegro national football team is present on FIFA rankings since June 2007. Until now, best ranking of Montenegro was 16th place in the world (June 2011).
Below is a list of Montenegro position on FIFA ranking-list by every six months, with number of points.

Team image

Name

Under the official FIFA Trigramme, the team’s name is abbreviated as MNE, which is also the country's code. The team's nickname is "The Brave Falcons" (Montenegrin: Hrabri Sokoli).

Stadium

Home venue of Montenegro national team matches is Podgorica City Stadium (often named Stadion pod Goricom). The Montenegrin team has never played a home game in any other stadium. Current capacity of stadium is 15,230 seats, but for international games there are about 13,000 free-seats, because most seats on the south stand are reserved for guest supporters.
With the full crowd at every important match, and the architecture of the stands which are only four meters away from the pitch-lines, games of Montenegrin national team are playing in the highly-electric atmosphere.

Camp FSCG

From 2008, Football Association of Montenegro owns one of most modern training grounds at Balkan peninsula. Built in 2007, the centre consists of 54000 sq meters.[10] It is located on Ćemovsko polje, a plain at Podgorica outskirts between the settlements Stari Aerodrom and Konik. It consists on six pitches with stands and floodlights,[11] and House of Football – a seat of Football Association of Montenegro.
Camp currently represents an important asset for the whole Montenegrin football system. Its grounds are home to all Montenegrin national teams (men and women) and numerous teams from Podgorica. Fields meets the criteria for Montenegrin First League games and UEFA competitions for young players.

House of Football

House of Football (Kuća fudbala) is a seat of Football Association of Montenegro. Building is opened at 21 May 2016.[12][13][14]
On 3,240 sq meters, building have modern facilities like reception, Museum, press hall, TV FSCG seat, administrative offices and meeting rooms.[15]

FSCG training grounds

Behind the House of Football are two football pitches which belongs to FSCG. Both have stands with capacity of 1,000 seats and main field have floodlights, too. Montenegro national football team use both stadiums as their training base before every single game.
Because it meets criteria for UEFA games, main field is often home to Montenegro women's national football team, Montenegro national under-19 football team and Montenegro national under-17 football team games. Except that, teams from First and Second Montenegrin League can always use main ground for their matches, which is especially crucial during the stormy days, when their own stadiums are in bad condition.

Kit

The team kit is currently produced by Italian company Legea. It is all-red with gold details to reflect the colours of the Montenegrin national flag. Before that, briefly the kit providers were daCapo (2007–2008).

Supporters

At competitive matches, the Montenegrin home ground Podgorica City Stadium is very often filled to capacity. The stadium is regarded as too small to meet the needs of the national team. Demand for the World Cup qualifier against Italy in 2009 was 30,000 tickets and 40,000 for the Euro 2012 qualifying match against England in 2011.

Montenegro's loudest and most loyal supporters are Ultra Crna Gora (Ultra Montenegro). They practice ultras way of support – standing up and singing for 90 minutes, no matter the result, both home and away. They occupy the north and south stands of Podgorica City Stadium. Choreography is usually performed at the beginning of the games. Ultra Crna Gora consists of many subgroups, mostly named after Podgorica's neighborhoods and Montenegrin towns in other parts of the country.

On 7 October 2011, in a match against England, at the sound of final whistle, hundreds of Montenegrin supporters ran onto the pitch to celebrate with the players.

Players

In international football, players can normally only play for one national team once they play in all or part of any match recognised as a full international by FIFA. However, an exception is made in cases where one or more newly independent states are created out of a former state. Based on current FIFA rules, a player will be eligible to play for Montenegro, even if he had previously represented Serbia and Montenegro or any other country, if at least one of the following statements applies:[16]

  • He was born in Montenegro.
  • At least one of his parents and/or at least one of his grandparents was born in Montenegro.
  • He has lived in Montenegro continuously for any five-year period.

Due to mixed ancestries, it is likely that a high percentage of the players eligible to play for Montenegro will also remain eligible to play for Serbia, and vice versa. However, once they have played for either Serbia or Montenegro in any competitive fixture, they are no longer eligible to play for any other nation.
