Teams: FC Internazionale Milano
Syria NT: The Red Black and Whites
The Syria national football team is the national team of Syria and is controlled by the Syrian Football Association. It has never qualified for the World Cup finals.
Although not one of the strongest teams in Asia, Syria nonetheless has considerable history. They participated in the 1950 and 1958 World Cup qualifiers, making them one of the first teams in the region to do so. In the 1966 World Cup qualifiers they were one of two teams from the Asian zone (the other being Israel) to be allocated to the European qualifying zone and were originally placed with Spain and the Republic of Ireland. However, they joined the Asian and African boycott of the 1966 qualifiers, due to the decision of FIFA to allocate just one place between Asia and Africa.
Syria's best showing was in the 1986 qualifiers when they reached the final qualifying round only to lose to Iraq.
Syria have reached four Asian Cups, the last being 1996 when they narrowly missed the quarter-finals.
