As his form at Partizan stabilized, he received another call-up in February 2005 for a friendly at Bulgaria, which was his first national team start before being substituted for Zvonimir Vukić. Couple of months later in June 2005, coach Petković gave Vukčević his competitive debut, putting him in for Ognjen Koroman during the second half of the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifier (2006 FIFA World Cup qualification - UEFA Group 7) at home versus Belgium (Belgium national football team). Serbia-Montenegro played to a sluggish and forgettable 0–0 draw as Vukčević almost scored on his competitive debut when Belgian keeper misjudged his harmless free kick and had to scramble back to push it against the cross bar. SerbiaMontenegro-Belgium 0:0, 4 June 2005 Four days later, Vukčević was on a plane to Toronto where he played the full 90 minutes in a friendly versus Italy (Italy national football team) at the Rogers Centre. This also turned out to be his last ever appearance for Serbia-Montenegro.
