The England national football team represents England in association football and is controlled by the Football Association, the governing body for football in England. England is the joint oldest national football team in the world, alongside Scotland, whom they played in the world's first international football match in 1872. Although most national football teams represent a sovereign state, England is one of the United Kingdom's Home Nations, meaning that it is permitted by FIFA statutes to maintain its own national side that competes in all major professional tournaments,[1] with the exception of the Olympic Games. England's home ground is Wembley Stadium in London and their head coach is Fabio Capello.

England are one of eight national teams to have won the FIFA World Cup, which they did in 1966 when they hosted the finals. They defeated West Germany 4–2 in extra time in the final. Since then their best performance at a World Cup was a fourth place finish in 1990. They reached the semifinals of the UEFA European Championship in 1968 and 1996. They were the most successful of the Home Nations in the British Home Championship with 54 wins (including 20 shared wins) before the competition was suspended in 1984.

The traditional rival of England is Scotland; the England and Scotland football rivalry began when they became opponents in the representative matches of the 1870s. As regular fixtures against Scotland came to an end in the late 1980s, rivalries with other national teams have become more prominent. Matches against Argentina and Germany have produced particularly eventful encounters.

The Montenegro national football team represents Montenegro in international football and is controlled by the Football Association of Montenegro, the governing body for football in Montenegro.

Montenegro is the world's newest international side, having come into existence following the 2006 FIFA World Cup. In that tournament, the newly independent states of Serbia and Montenegro competed as a united team and played their last group match on 21 June, failing to qualify for the following knockout stage.

The first official competition that the Montenegro national team competed in was the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying; they had not registered membership with FIFA in time for the qualifying draw for UEFA Euro 2008, which took place in December 2005. They competed in Group 8, along with Italy, Bulgaria, Ireland, Cyprus and Georgia. They failed to qualify for the World Cup. Euro 2012 qualifying has seen a good start from the team. While they are not expected to qualify, their run has seen them rise into the top 40 best national teams in the world, according to the FIFA World Rankings published in September 2010. Their good run in the Euro 2012 campaign continued when they defeated Switzerland 1-0 on 8 October 2010.
