The CIS national football team represented the Commonwealth of Independent States, a regional confederation formed by 12 of the 15 newly formed sovereign states that emerged out of the break-up of the Soviet Unionmarker during the first half of 1992. Since the USSR national team had already booked a spot in the Euro 1992 by qualifying in 1991, the only legitimate way for them to take part in the competition was to take part as a unified team. As the Soviet Unionmarker ceased to exist on 1 January 1992, so did the Football Federation of USSR. On 11 January 1992, the Association Football Federation of CIS was formed and approved by FIFA two days later.

Since Estoniamarker, Latviamarker and Lithuaniamarker were never members of the Commonwealth of Independent States, and since the national teams of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania had already been formed, the players from these states did not participate in the CIS national team. Though the federation was successfully able to put together a national team, plans for a domestic league were less successful, resulting in separate championships for all of the breakaway republics. Although Georgiamarker only became a member of CIS in 1993, it also participated in the CIS team.



Thus, the CIS national football team was previously known as the USSR national football team until June 1992 when the team completed its participation in the Euro 1992. It was renamed to Russia national football team and additional national teams for the FSU republics were formed as well.

The CIS national football team was coached by Anatoly Byshovets. The team failed to achieve success in Euro 1992, finishing last in the group with 2 draws and 1 loss, but achieved two notable draws with Germany and the Netherlands, before being beaten 3-0 by Scotland in what turned out to be their last ever match.
