The Moldova national football team is the national football team of Moldova under the auspice of the Football Association of Moldova. After the break-up of the Soviet Union, they played their first match against Georgia on July 2, 1991.

Their two best results came within a month of each other in the mid-1990s, during the qualifiers for Euro 96. On September 7, 1994, they beat Georgia 1-0 in Tbilisi with a goal from Igor Oprea. A month later, on October 12, 1994, they defeated Wales 3-2 in Chişinău; the Moldovan scorers were Sergiu Secu, Serghei Belous, and Valerii Pogorelov. However, they could not keep up the momentum and finished well out of contention in the group.
