Under Yugoslav coach Vojo Gardasevic, the Seychelles team made their debut in the World Cup qualifiers in 2001. Philip Zialor got the equaliser for Seychelles in a 1-1 draw against Namibia at Stade Linité. In the preliminary round return leg match, Seychelles lost 0-3.
In their second attempt to qualify, for the 2006 World Cup, Seychelles lost 0-4 at home to Zambia but played a 1-1 draw in the away match. Robert Suzette was the scorer of Seychelles’ goal in Lusaka. Seychelles’ biggest competitive win came against Zimbabwe in the African Nations Cup 2004 qualifiers. Goals by strikers Alpha Baldé and Philip Zialor gave Seychelles a 2-1 win at Stade Linité against Zimbabwe captained by professional striker Peter Ndlovu. German coach Michael Nees was at the helm of the team at that time. Under Frenchman Dominique Bathenay, Seychelles also beat Eritrea 1-0 at Stade Linité by a goal by veteran Roddy Victor in the same qualifiers.
