The Serbia national under-21 football team is the national under-21 football team of Serbia and is controlled by the Football Association of Serbia. The team competes in the European Under-21 Football Championship, held every two years.

The team is considered the successor to the "Serbia and Montenegro national under-21 football team", which in turn was the successor to the Yugoslavia national under-21 football team.

History

The Yugoslav U21 team represented Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia until the country dissolved in 1992. In 1996 an under-21 team representing the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia began playing. The F.R.Y. (and the team) changed name to Serbia and Montenegro in 2003.

In 2006 Serbia and Montenegro separated, with its governing body converting into the FA of Serbia. The Serbian under-21 team has assumed Serbia and Montenegro's place in the qualifying round for the UEFA U-21 Championship 2007, whilst Montenegro cannot compete internationally at U21 level until a Montenegrin FA is established and officially ratified. Because the U21 Championship of 2007 is already underway, a Montenegro U21 team cannot play competitively until qualification for the 2009 tournament, at the earliest.

Playing record

FR Yugoslavia/Serbia-Montenegro

The senior team played its first match in December 1994. The U-21s' first competitive matches were in the qualification stage of the 1998 competition.

The under-21 team failed to qualify for the first three UEFA Under-21 competitions it entered, but were runners-up in the 2004 tournament. In their final championship, taking place in Portugal, Serbia and Montenegro qualified for semifinals, where they lost on penalties to Ukraine.

Serbia's U-21 National Team qualified for the U-21 European Championship held in The Netherlands, in June 2007, after a remarkable two game play-off against Sweden. After a shocking 3-0 loss at home, Serbia overturned the result two weeks later, defeating Sweden 5-0, and advancing to the final tournament. Serbia's 2007 U-21 European Championship campaign was very successful, as they finished in second place, losing the final to the hosts, by a score of 4-1. On their way to the final, they defeated Italy (1-0), Czech Republic (1-0), and Belgium (2-0). The only other loss, besides the final, was the 3rd group game against England (0-2), which was a meaningless game for the Serbians, as they had already qualified for the semifinals.
