The Ashkenatza national football team was the football team which represented the micronation of Ashkenatza. It was a member of the WMFA.

History

The team was founded in 2008 after Ashkenatza's Micrasian claim was successful. The team was entered into the qualifiers for the 2009 FMF World Cup, where they finished second in their group behind Tellia, advancing to the play-offs where they lost 5–1 to Batavia on aggregate.

The team finished third in their four-team group in the following year's qualifiers.

In the 2011 qualifiers, the team finished third in the WMFA's sole six-team group, advancing them to the interconfederational play-off. The team qualified for 2011 FMF World Cup by virtue of the away goals rule after a 2–2 aggregate scoreline against Zandarijn. In the finals, the team finished bottom of their group despite winning their opening match against fellow débutants Victoria.

The team finished second in their five-team 2012 qualifying group and advanced to the WMFA play-off against Batavia, where they lost 6–4 on aggregate. The team, however, sealed their place in the first ever Benacia Cup later in the year, but could only finish bottom of their group after losing both matches.

In the 2013 World Cup qualifiers, the team topped their four-team group unbeaten with twelve points to reach both their second World Cup and Benacia Cup. In the Benacia Cup, the team won two matches as they finished in fourth place with six points, before finishing third in their World Cup group with a single point, ahead of Nova English Korea on goal difference. Ashkenatza left Micras later in the year after being declared dead.
