Serbia has been competing in the FIFA World Cup since 1930 where they came in 4th place but they haven’t always been considered the Serbia national football team. The team was previously know as the Yugoslavia national football team between January 1992 and February 2003 and then was changed to the Serbia and Montenegro national football team until June 2006. They were officially renamed the Serbia national football team later in June 2006 after declaring their independence. Serbia has been very active in the World Cup as they’ve qualified for 11 Cups but couldn’t get passed round 1 in 2006.
