*If they get playing time and keep injuries free.
I think Piturca needs to send the message that not any performance is accepted on the national team. He needs to stop calling Petre, Cocis, Marius Niculae and possibly Nicolita too. Adrian Cristea has to leave too if at 24 he is not good enough to play 1 minute. Until these players show at their clubs that they deserve to be called they shouldn´t be, or else he´ll be sending the message that what we did is the best we can do.
Also calling players that are on their prime and still didn´t make it like Aliuta, Bucur or Bratu may not be very useful.
The main changes need to be on the offensive part, were clearly Piturca considered our players weren´t good enough to play much. On defence Sapunaru, Moti and Radu must get more playing time as they are the future starters.
Ghioane should be called and players like Costea, Deac, Torje, Szekely seem ready to start getting playing time.
Finally, i think that it´s necessary that players like Lobont, Goian, Radoi and Dica for example move to big leagues, as only when they play against the best players every week and at a higher intensity and pace will they be ready to put up with the demands of a big tournament. Codrea is the best example of this, as being just a good player his experience in Italy makes him a very useful part of the team. There is no way we can compete against Italy and Netherlands consistently when 5 of our potential starters play in Romania or in lower leagues. Radoi for example is top class player, but how many times has he faced world class attackers? 10, 12 times? That is a huge disadvantage.
