The Kyrgyz Republic national football team (Kyrgyz: Кыргыз Республикасынын улуттук курама командасы (Kırgız Respublikasının uluttuk kurama komandası); Russian: Сборная Киргизии по футболу (Sbornaya Kirgizii po Futbolu)) is the national team of Kyrgyzstan and is controlled by the Football Federation of the Kyrgyz Republic. It is a member of the Central Asian Football Association, which is a member of the Asian Football Confederation.

History

1992 to 2010: struggle

After the breakup of the Soviet Union and declaration of its independence, Kyrgyzstan became a fully recognized FIFA and AFC member. They played their first match away in Tashkent, against Uzbekistan on 23 August 1992 in the Central Asia Tournament, losing 3–0.

In June 1993, Kyrgyzstan travelled to Tehran, Iran for the 1993 ECO Cup. They lost 3–2 on 6 June to Azerbaijan and then drew 1–1 two days later against Tajikistan.

In April 1994, Kyrgyzstan played other Central Asian teams in a tournament in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. On 13 April they lost 5–1 to Turkmenistan, then on 15 April 1–0 to Tajikistan. On 17 April they drew 0–0 against Kazakhstan before losing 3–0 to the hosts two days later.[1]

Kyrgyzstan continued to struggle, due to little interests of developing football in Kyrgyzstan. The national team often lacked basic developments to develop the national team, comparing to its Central Asian neighbors, making Kyrgyzstan remained backward behind Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, the latter being the strongest team in the region. Despite of this, Kyrgyzstan still managed to achieve some significant result, such as winning bronze in the 2006 AFC Challenge Cup.

Since 2010s: rise of Kyrgyz football

With the arrival of Sergey Dvoryankov, the team had witnessed a significant resurgence. Dvoryankov had made a significant progress by calling and naturalizing a number of foreign players into the national team of Kyrgyzstan such as Ghana's David Tetteh, Elijah Ari and Daniel Tagoe; Cameroon's Claude Maka Kum; Germany's Viktor Maier, Vitalij Lux, Viktor Kelm and Edgar Bernhardt; as well as calling more Kyrgyz-born Russian players to play for the team. As for the result, Kyrgyzstan's football dramatically improved. The White Falcons had made up significantly good result during the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification, when Kyrgyzstan managed to defeat its long time neighbor-rival, Tajikistan, or defeating Jordan, which is regarded as a strong team who had also beaten Australia before, as well as managed to play well against Asian champions Australia despite losing all two matches.

Under another Russian manager, Aleksandr Krestinin, Kyrgyzstan is heading to qualify for its first ever AFC Asian Cup since independence, when they placed themselves against India, Myanmar and Macau. On 22 March 2018, after thrashing Myanmar 5–1, Kyrgyzstan had finally qualified for their first ever AFC Asian Cup in the history.
