Friendly: Switzerland - Romania



Swissporarena, Luzern.

Wednesday 30 May, 21:15 (Romanian time).



Romanian squad:

Bogdan Lobonţ (AS Roma), Ciprian Tătăruşanu (Steaua) şi Silviu Lung jr. (Astra Ploieşti) - GKs

Paul Papp (FC Vaslui), Cornel Râpă (Oţelul Galaţi), Valerică Găman (Astra Ploieşti), Vlad Chiricheş (Steaua), Dorin Goian (Glasgow Rangers), Răzvan Raţ (Şahtior Doneţk) şi Iasmin Latovlevici (Steaua) - Defenders

Gabriel Torje (Udinese), Alexandru Maxim (Pandurii Târgu Jiu), Alexandru Bourceanu (Steaua), Nicolae Grigore (Rapid), George Florescu (Arsenal Kiev), Florin Gardos (Steaua), Costin Lazăr (PAOK Salonic), Alexandru Chipciu (Steaua) şi Cristian Tănase (Steaua) - Midfielders

Daniel Niculae (AS Nancy-Lorraine), Gheorghe Grozav (Universitatea Cluj), Marius Alexe (Dinamo) şi Costin Curelea (Sportul Studentesc) - Strikers



Probable line-up:


--------------------------Tatarusanu
--------------Chiriches-----------------Goian
Papp-------------------------------------------------Rat
---------------Bourceanu-------------Lazar
Torje----------------------------------------------Tanase
-------------------------------------Alexe
----------------------D.Niculae




Romania and Switzerland have faced each other in 11 games until now, with 4 victories for each team and 3 draws.
I'm not 100% sure, but their last game was probably the one in WC 1994.

Yeah that´s probably the team. Altough Florescu instead of Bourceanu, Lobont in goal and Grozav instead of Alexe wouldn´t surprise me. We´ll see.

Except for the attack with one expired player and a very raw one the rest of the team is good.

Again, without Lazar, that team would even lose to Estonia... no real brains in the team in midfield and attack.

Bourceanu and Latovlevici alone are enough for me to laugh at this squad...well said foresta, and if Lazar is having a bad day or gets injured we have Florescu and Grigore as a replacement...it's a pity Pintilii and Cocis can't play p

Maxim from Pandurii its a very , but bery talented player.You guys will have a surprise regarding him.Ilie Dumitrescu said about him 2 days ago that every team from Romania should try to get this guy instead of Wesley or other hot players from Liga 1.He also said he is very talented and full of personality.Dumitrescu its kinda impressed of this guy.

He is talented alright. So, far, he´s integrated well and is very useful for his team, but he hasn´t been spectacular either. It was only his first season in first team football so we can say he is evolving very well

He was close to Espanyol first squad when he was 19...he had bad luck because he had 2 bad injuries when he was at Espanyol...it seems he was their best young player...im really excited to watch him playing for Romania for the first time.

why?! because they won against the team we beat just "yesterday" 5:1 p

every game is different, i wouldn't interpret too much in such a friendly right before an EC. Löw tried out a lot of things and they missed all 8 Bayern players.

GSP bets on a 4-2-3-1 system with these players: Lobonţ - Papp, Chiricheş, Goian, Raţ - C. Lazăr, Bourceanu - Torje, Tănase, Alexe - D. Niculae

With the exception of the GK and the striker, that's not a bad squad considering the situation.
