Serbia and Montenegro
Baša has capped for Serbia and Montenegro in 2005. All were friendlies. He has also played for Serbian and Montenegro national team at the 2004 Summer Olympics.
In the years after the dissolution of Serbia-Montenegro state union, Baša's international loyalty remained unclear. He received a call-up from Serbia national team by head coach Javier Clemente for the away friendly against Czech Republic on 16 August 2006 (first match since Montenegro left the state union) but did not show up - apparently because of an injury. Since then, his international loyalty was often a subject of press speculation, but he did not receive any more official call-ups from Serbia.
In March 2007 he was frequently quoted in Montenegrin press (namely Vijesti daily) saying that he wants to play for Montenegro, but he made himself unavailable for their inaugural match on 24 March 2007 due to, as he said, "objective circumstances".
Then, in late May he apparently did not respond to Montenegrin football officials' attempts to get in touch with him and as a result he wasn't included in the team that went to Japan to play in Kirin Cup.
Finally, Baša received a call-up from Montenegro for their friendly against Slovenia on 22 August 2007 but did not show up.
Only in February 2009, new information appeared that Baša is considering appearing for Montenegro again if he gets a call up after Montenegro national team coach Zoran Filipović insistence. He received a call-up against Italy in March 2009, and made his debut as starter.
He plays regularly for national team.
Marko Baša was born in Trstenik, in central Serbia (at the time part of SR Serbia, SFR Yugoslavia). His father is from the town of Vranjina in the Cetinje municipality in central Montenegro. His mother is from Trstenik.
Marko and Miloš Krasić are close friends.
