The Federated States of Micronesia national football team is the national team of the Federated States of Micronesia and is controlled by the Federated States of Micronesia Football Association. The team is not a member of FIFA, or a regional confederation, and therefore cannot compete in the World Cup.

Overview[edit]

The team has only played a handful of matches, the last in 2003.[3] The team was then managed by Paul Watson, brother of British comedian Mark Watson, and competed in the South Pacific Games.[4] In 2015 the Under-23 team suffered a series of heavy defeats at the Pacific Games, though the presence of a side at the tournament was intended to be the first steps towards having a more permanent national team with FIFA recognition.[4]
