The Russia national football team (Russian: Национальная сборная России по футболу) represents Russia in association football and is controlled by the Russian Football Union (Russian: Российский Футбольный Союз, Rossijskij Futboľnyj Sojuz), the governing body for football in Russia. Russia's home grounds are Luzhniki Stadium, Lokomotiv Stadium (both in Moscow), and Petrovsky Stadium in St.Petersburg and their head coach is Dick Advocaat. Russia qualified for two World Cups (1994, 2002) and four European Championships (1996, 2004, 2008, 2012). Euro 2008 marks the first time they have passed the group stages of a major tournament, these advances are not counting the Soviet Union national team.

FIFA considers the Russia national team the direct heirs of the CIS and the Soviet Union national teams.
