Serbia has competed under various Yugoslav national teams since the breakup of SFR Yugoslavia and its football team in 1992. The team has had significant success, finishing fourth in the 1930 and 1962 World Cups. Due to the countries' new names, Serbia participated as Serbia and Montenegro between February 2003 and June 2006. After a referendum in 2006, Montenegro declared its independence. It created separate football federations and eventually renamed the team as the sovereign Serbia national football team. Following the dissolution of Serbia and Montenegro, Serbia has played as an independent nation since 2006, and qualified for the World Cup in 2010 and 2018.
FIFA and UEFA consider Serbia as the official successor of both the national football teams of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia/SFR Yugoslavia and the FR Yugoslavia/Serbia and Montenegro.
As per FIFA, the official world ranking of the international men’s Serbia soccer team is as follows.

Serbia's football team was a member of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia from the 1930 FIFA World Cup to the 1938 FIFA World Cup. Then, from the 1950 FIFA World Cup to the 1990 FIFA World Cup, Serbia was a member of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, both of which participated in the world cup.
Serbia and Montenegro played together from the FIFA World Cup in 1994 to the FIFA World Cup in 2006. Players such as Mateja Kezman, Nikola Zigic, and Daniel Ljuboja have represented the team in the game. But with only one win in three group games.
Serbia has played as an independent nation since 2006. In 2006, Serbia won one of three group games in South Africa and was knocked out. Failing to qualify for Brazil in 2014, they returned to the World Cup in 2018. Again, with just one win in three group games. They have been knocked out yet again. The team has qualified for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. They boast some serious players. There's a lot of hope of them reaching the knockout stage.
Note that Serbia, who received FIFA's official recognition as the Yugoslav team's replacement, has taken over all of Yugoslavia's records.

This year, the squad boasts some fantastic players. Drojan Stojkovic is impressive. Aleksandar Mitrovic is vice-captain, with 50 goals in 76 caps. However, here are some important key players you should keep an eye on this season.
Dusan Tadic captains the Serbia football team. He was a regular member of the team in under-19 and under-21 matches. He also represented Serbia at the 2008 Summer Olympics. He is the most influential player in the squad, with 90 caps.
Filip Kostic plays as a left winger on the national team. He is a left-footed wide player with good athleticism who also shares duties on defence and can score: Kostic is exceptional in combining offensive and defensive duties seamlessly.
Dusan Vlahovic plays as a striker for the national squad. His physicality, technique, and eye for the goal are well-known. He is excellent at grabbing the ball and holding onto it in the middle of the field or inside the right or left channels. His performance has helped the Serbian team to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Fun88 predicted odd: +8000
Despite having a decent team of players, Serbia will have a difficult time competing in Group G, which includes one of the top teams in the world - Brazil. Serbia will compete with Switzerland and Cameroon for the final spot because Brazil is almost certain to win their group—a feat they have accomplished in nine consecutive tournaments. They still have a better chance of winning than the Cameroons. Our Fun88 experts believe that your best bet will be to determine whether Serbia will make it to the Round of 16.
