The Moldova national football team (Echipa națională de fotbal a Moldovei) represents Moldova in association football and is controlled by the Football Association of Moldova, the governing body for football in Moldova. Moldova's home ground is Zimbru Stadium in Chișinău and their head coach is Ion Caras. After the break-up of the Soviet Union, they played their first match against Georgia on July 2, 1991.
Two of their three best results in the 1990s years, came during the qualifiers for the Euro 96, with wins over Georgia (1–0) in Tbilisi and Wales (3–2) in Chișinău. In 2007 Moldova obtained a very good result, beating Hungary 3−0 in Chișinău in the Euro 2008 qualifiers. Their best recent result was a 5-2 win over Montenegro during the 2014 World Cup qualifiers. The team has never qualified for the final stages of the European Championship or the FIFA World Cup.
Following Moldova's 4–0 defeat to England in September 1997, the British writer and comedian Tony Hawks travelled to Moldova to challenge and beat all 11 Moldovan international footballers at tennis. The feature film version of the book of the same name, Playing the Moldovans at Tennis, was filmed in and around Chișinău in May and June 2010 and was released in the spring of 2012.
Although it is part of the former Soviet Union, Moldova is considered one of Europe's weakest teams.
