This is virtually the last chance for any kind of tests. The next and last friendly will be with the final squad already selected, and of course Piturca won´t take any new player without using him in a friendly.

Except for the ones coming from injuries, like Zicu or Radoi, who may be called if they reach a good form because they already were part of the team, nobody who isn´t in this selection will go to the euro. The only thing left to decide will be between the squad players like Bucur, Bratu, Trica and Cristea.

He will Keep M.Niculae, bring Radoi.

He will call Cristea and forget Trica.

he will call Bucur and not Bratu.


Piti has trends, I don't see him taking any risks.

He's a skillful midfielder capable of playing multiple positions.

No Arshavin + no Kerzhakov...should be a comfortable game for Romania. Arshavin's too important.

2 or 3-0 Romania.

Beats me, they're fit. Hiddink's decision.

Arshavin won´t be available in the first 2 games in EURO, right?

And about the result, you are too pessimistic. I don´t expect a comfortable win for Romania at all. I just hope they show good football and an efficient display. The result is not so important in a friendly, but a win is good for the moral.


I´ve seen that Ovidiu Petre has been playing quite decent lately (even scoring some goals). It´s funny that now that I think he really deserves a call-up he can be punished for his stupid red card against Israel.

Russia will be without strikers Andrei Arshavin and Aleksandr Kerzhakov for their friendly away against fellow UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifiers Romania on 26 March.

Time to adapt
Guus Hiddink has opted to omit the pair for the trip to the Steaua Stadium in Bucharest as Arshavin is due to serve a two-match ban which will keep him out of Russia's first two Group D games – against Spain and holders Greece – in Austria and Switzerland this summer. Kerzhakov, who returned to his homeland to join FC Dinamo Moskva from Sevilla FC last month, has been given more time to re-adjust to life in Russia after his move.

Izmailov opening
In their absence, Hiddink has turned to Sporting Clube de Portugal midfielder Marat Izmailov – who won the last of his 31 caps in October 2006 and is seen as a possible replacement for the creative Arshavin for this summer's finals – although 1. FC Nürnberg forward Ivan Saenko is also left out. FC Moskva forward Roman Adamov and Roman Shirokov, who has impressed since dropping back into defence from his usual midfield role, are the only uncapped players in the squad having been called up for the first time for last month's training camp in Turkey.

Russia squad
Goalkeepers: Igor Akinfeev (PFC CSKA Moskva), Vladimir Gabulov (FC Amkar Perm), Vyacheslav Malafeev (FC Zenit St. Petersburg).

Defenders: Aleksandr Anyukov (FC Zenit St. Petersburg), Aleksei Berezutski (PFC CSKA Moskva), Vasili Berezutski (PFC CSKA Moskva), Sergei Ignashevich (PFC CSKA Moskva), Denis Kolodin (FC Dinamo Moskva).

Midfielders: Diniyar Bilyaletdinov (FC Lokomotiv Moskva), Dmitri Torbinskiy (FC Lokomotiv Moskva), Vladimir Bystrov (FC Spartak Moskva), Yuri Zhirkov (PFC CSKA Moskva), Konstantin Zyrianov (FC Zenit St. Petersburg), Roman Shirokov (FC Zenit St. Petersburg), Marat Izmailov (Sporting Clube de Portugal), Igor Semshov (FC Dinamo Moskva).

Forwards: Roman Adamov (FC Moskva), Roman Pavlyuchenko (FC Spartak Moskva), Dmitri Sychev (FC Lokomotiv Moskva), Pavel Pogrebnyak (FC Zenit St. Petersburg).

Yeah, very likely Sunday; Piti always leaves it to the last minute...

There are rumors both Costea and Prepelita will be called (but somehow, I think they'll be called for the B-team, not the A-team).

Bogdan Lobonţ (FC Dinamo Bucureşti) şi Marius Popa (FC Politehnica 1921 Ştiinţa Timişoara) – portari

Cosmin Contra (Getafe CF), George Ogăraru (AFC Ajax Amsterdam), Gabriel Tamaş (AJ Auxerre), Dorin Goian (FC Steaua Bucureşti), Cristian Chivu (FC Internazionale Milano), Răzvan Raţ (FC Şahtior Doneţk) şi Laszlo Sepsi (SL Benfica) – fundaşi

Florentin Petre (TSKA Sofia), Bănel Nicoliţă (FC Steaua Bucureşti), Răzvan Cociş (FC Lokomotiv Moscova), Ovidiu Petre, Mirel Rădoi, Nicolae Dică (toţi, FC Steaua Bucureşti), Marian Aliuţă (FC Politehnica 1921 Ştiinţa Timişoara) – mijlocaşi

Adrian Mutu (Fiorentina), Ciprian Marica (VfB Stuttgart), Daniel Niculae (AJ Auxerre), Marius Niculae (Inverness) – atacanţi

Yuck... Bad choices... Same team. Aliuta new. Niculae and Sepsi also, but that was quite clear.
