From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Since gaining independence in 1991, Armenia has had its own national association that takes part in all FIFA competitions (senior, youth and women's football). Ararat Yerevan were one of the leading teams in the top league in the Soviet Union, often playing in European club competitions. A number of Armenian players played for the USSR national team, including Khoren Oganesian at the 1982 FIFA World Cup and Eduard Markarov in the 1960s. Markarov later became assistant coach of the Soviet Unions youth team, and was part of the coaching staff at the FIFA World Youth Championship in Portugal in 1991, when the team finished third.
