EURO 2016: SPOTLIGHT ON ROMANIA

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

Romania reached this summer's finals after finishing second in their qualifying group behind Northern Ireland after a series of impressive performances. Their defence performed incredibly well, only conceding twice in the ten qualifying matches, the least out of all the teams involved in the qualifiers. Their tight defending was a huge factor in helping them be one of the four sides not to lose a single game in the qualifiers.

Romania have reached the Euro finals twice since the turn of the century, in 2000 and 2008. 2000 is the only year in Romania's footballing history when they've managed to reach the latter stages of a European championship. Their impressive run in the qualifiers will have gone a long way in boosting their confidence ahead of this summer's finals in France.

PREVIEW AND ASSESSMENT

At their best Romania can be a real thorn in the other sides of their group. The Romanians' defence was pure steel in the qualifiers, and although their group didn't have any real elite-level countries, a good defence is the best possible basis for a successful tournament.

Attack might be the Romanians' Achilles' heel against the bigger countries, as 11 goals in the qualifiers was one of the smallest amounts out of all the teams that reached the finals. And those 11 goals came in one of the easiest groups. Romania shouldn't rely solely on their defence, as teams like Switzerland and France in particular will break them down eventually.

A tight defensive wall earns the Romanians enough respect for us to believe they might be able to tease their groups' two favourites, France and Switzerland. By beating Albania and grabbing a draw in one of their other games could mean the Romanians might progress as one of the third-placed sides. However, they can't afford any slip-ups.

Assessment: Third in Group A. Will progress as one of the best third-placed sides.

Betting Tip: No good odds as of yet.

ROMANIA'S MOST LIKELY STARTING ELEVEN

Goalkeeper: Tătărușanu

Defenders: Mățel, Chiricheș, Grigore, Raț

Midfielders: Hoban, Pintilii; Torje, Maxim, Stancu

Forward: Andone

Key Player: Vlad Chiriches, Napoli

Undefeated in the qualifiers with only two goals conceded, there's no prize for guessing Romania's tactics at Euro 2016. Due to their defensive approach their number one centre-back has an enormous responsibility, and the Napoli-man is without a doubt the Romanians' single most important player. He is also their captain.
