The Serbia national football team (Serbian: Фудбалска репрезентација Србије, romanized: Fudbalska reprezentacija Srbije) represents Serbia in men's international football competition. It is controlled by the Football Association of Serbia, the governing body for football in Serbia.
With the national team nicknamed the Orlovi (Орлови; the Eagles), football has a long history in Serbia. Serbia competed under the various forms of Yugoslav national teams where it achieved considerable success, playing the final at the 1960 and 1968 European Championships and finishing fourth at the 1930 and 1962 World Cups. Considered by FIFA and UEFA to be the successor of both the Yugoslavia and Serbia and Montenegro national teams, the achievements of the promising team of the 1990s (which featured Serbian players such as Dragan Stojković, Dejan Savićević, Predrag Mijatović, Vladimir Jugović and Siniša Mihajlović) was somewhat curbed due to international sanctions imposed against Yugoslavia at the time due to the Yugoslav Wars.
Following the dissolution of Serbia and Montenegro, Serbia has played as an independent nation since 2006, and qualified for the World Cup in 2010 and 2018.
Serbia usually use the home of Red Star Belgrade, the Rajko Mitić Stadium, as their home ground. Occasionally, the Partizan Stadium is also used.
Rajko Mitić Stadium (Serbian: Стадион Рајко Митић, romanized: Stadion Rajko Mitić, previously known as Red Star Stadium (Serbian: Стадион Црвена звезда, romanized: Stadion Crvena zvezda), also known as Marakana (Serbian Cyrillic: Маракана), is a multi-use stadium in Belgrade, Serbia which has been the home ground of Red Star Belgrade since 1963. The stadium is located in Dedinje, municipality of Savski Venac.
Rajko Mitić Stadium, renamed in December 2014 in honor of club's former player and legend Rajko Mitić, has a seating capacity of 53,000 and is currently the largest stadium in Serbia by capacity.
The Stadium has hosted numerous international matches at a senior level, including European Cup final in 1973 and UEFA European Championship finals in 1976.
