On that tournament, played in Vilnius, Montenegro made a big surprise, because they qualified for the final round of 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup qualification (UEFA).
On April 2015, on debut of new head coach Derviš Hadžiosmanović, Montenegro made biggest win in team's history, against Macedonia away - 7:0.

Second appearance in World Cup Qualifiers, Montenegro had during the April 2017. On World Cup 2019 qualifying tournament, which hosted Faroe Islands, Montenegro finished third, with one win and two defeats, but with positive goal-difference (8:6). On last game, Montenegro made the biggest all-time victory in qualifiers, against Luxembourg (7:1).
