Liechtenstein have been involved in major competition since 1994 but in ten qualifying campaigns the team from the tiny principality bordering Austria and Switzerland have only once succeeded in avoiding bottom place in their group. That was in the 2006 FIFA World Cup campaign, when they did the double over Luxembourg and accumulated a final tally of eight points – their best haul to date. They also posted two victories in the UEFA EURO 2008 qualifiers, against Latvia and Iceland, but their last three qualifying campaigns have between them yielded just a solitary win, against Lithuania on the road to UEFA EURO 2012.

Liechtenstein have found it tough going in UEFA European Championship qualifying. They delivered their best performance in UEFA EURO 2008, when they amassed seven points thanks to a 3-0 home win against Iceland, a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture and a 1-0 defeat of Latvia.

The Alpine side's haul of four points in a UEFA EURO 2012 section also containing Spain, the Czech Republic and Scotland was earned in their meetings with Lithuania, who they defeated 2-0 at home and drew with 0-0 in the return.
