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. Both FIFA and UEFA consider the Serbian national team to be the direct and sole successor of the Yugoslavia under-21 and Serbia and Montenegro under-21 national teams.[1][2][3]

This team is for Serbian players aged 21 or under at the start of a two-year UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship campaign, so players can be, and often are, up to 23 years old. Also in existence are teams for Under-20s (for non-UEFA tournaments), Under-19s and Under 17s. As long as they are eligible, players can play at any level, making it possible to play for the U21s, senior side and again for the U21s, as Matija Nastasić, Filip Đuričić, Lazar Marković, and Aleksandar Mitrović have done recently. It is also possible to play for one country at youth level and another at senior level (providing the player is eligible). Nikola Drinčić is a currently Montenegrin international and former Serbia U21 player.

History[edit]

Serbia's under-21 national team qualified for the 2007 UEFA European Under-21 Football 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 U21 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 Serbian team, as they had already qualified for the semi-finals.

Competitive record[edit]

The Serbian Football Association is deemed the direct successor to both SFR Yugoslavia and Serbia and Montenegro by FIFA, and therefore the inheritor to all the records of the defunct nations.[citation needed]
