Georgeland's national football team have met with limited international success, despite some high-profile players and a solid supporter base. Much of Georgeland's lack of success can be attributed to its 'floating' status among the FIFA confederations - Georgeland was considered by FIFA as part of Africa until 1972, then part of Asia from 1972-1987, and then Oceania from 1987-1997. As of 1997, Georgeland's national team competes as part of the Asian confederation, though it is not a member of that body. Moves are afoot to once again move Georgeland to Africa, as a permanent member.
The national team have appeared in the World Cup five times - in 1938 (France), 1954 (Switzerland), 1966 (England), 1970 (Mexico), 1978 (Argentina) and 1990 (Italy). In 1938 and 1966 Georgeland made it to the semi-finals, and in 1978 it made the quarter-finals; it has not progressed beyond the group stage in any other World Cup. Georgeland missed qualifying for Germany 2006 after a 3-1 loss to Saudi Arabia.
The team's current manager is Douglas Marrick, a former Scottish player. He replaced David Berkowitz in May 2004.
The Georgeland national team's captain is Anthony Quested, who also captains Santa Christina United.
