Friendly: Romania - Trinidad & Tobago

Game will be played on 4 June at National Arena from Bucharest




Players abroad pre-called by Piturca:

Bogdan Lobonţ (AS Roma)
Gabriel Tamaş (West Bromwich Albion)
Dorin Goian (Spezia Calcio)
Răzvan Raţ (FC Şahtior Doneţk)
Gabriel Torje (Granada CF)
Costin Lazăr (PAOK Salonic)
Alexandru Maxim (VfB Stuttgart)
Adrian Stoian (Chievo)
Bogdan Stancu (Orduspor Kulubu)
Ciprian Andrei Marica (FC Schalke 04)


Of course, Romania and T&T never played before in the same football game. The 'most similar' rivals Romanians have ever faced in their history are Cuba (which eliminated Romania from WC'38 after two games) and Honduras (Romanian victory in 2010 friendly).

LOL, That's one impressive squad... I guess they forget to see that Mutu is not there? His name alone could earn that media title LOL!

Trinidad Tobago were at the WC2006 so they're better than us.

Well, that's what Razvan would say to the media before the match.

Piti would say "**** all of you reporters".

This match looks like it´ll be a pain. Let´s see if the local callups will bring something more interesting, but i doubt it.

I guess he will take out Stoian from the final squad in order to play Tanase; because Dodel has many things to prove in a friendly against T&T.

He's honestly one of the shittiest players we have called up religiously in the past decade.

The squad is out: No Steaua players!


Selecţionerul echipei noastre naţionale, Victor Piţurcă, a anunţat, joi seară, numele celor 20 de jucători convocaţi pentru meciul amical România - Trinidad&Tobago, programat marţi, 4 iunie, de la ora 20.45, pe Arena Naţională, informează frf.ro.

Vineri, de la ora 13.00, în cantonamentul de la Centrul Tehnic Naţional al FRF de la Mogoşoaia, vor intra următorii jucători:

Portari: Bogdan Ionuţ Lobonţ (AS Roma) şi Silviu Lung jr. (AFC Astra)

Fundaşi: Alexandru Măţel (AFC Astra), Srgian Luchin (FC Dinamo Bucureşti), Gabriel Sebastian Tamaş (West Bromwich Albion), Marius Valerică Găman (AFC Astra), Nicolai Dorin Goian (Spezia Calcio), Răzvan Raţ-Dincă (West Ham United) şi Alexandru Vlad (CS Pandurii Lignitul Târgu Jiu)

Mijlocaşi: Gabriel Andrei Torje (Granada CF), Aurelian Chiţu (FC Viitorul Constanţa), Costin Lazăr (PAOK Salonic), Dan Nicolae Nistor (CS Pandurii Lignitul Târgu Jiu), Ovidiu Ştefan Hoban (FC Petrolul Ploieşti), Nicolae Grigore (FC Rapid Bucureşti), Alexandru Iulian Maxim (VfB Stuttgart) şi Adrian Stoian (Chievo)

Atacanţi: Gheorghe Teodor Grozav (FC Petrolul Ploieşti), Bogdan Sorin Stancu (Orduspor Kulubu) şi Ciprian Andrei Marica (FC Schalke)

New faces, surprises and good news highlighted. Now Piturca extends his conflict towards Steaua as a whole. What will he say this time? I really don´t know if he´ll resist the pressure after this.

Oh, and he always has to do at least one Piturchian call: Nicolae Grigore! No Mateiu, Anton or Benzar for that matter. The 30 y old Grogore...

Matei and Alexe were also left out...

Maybe he knows Steaua players well enough (and they know each other well enough)... and wants to give them a break.

Interesting to see Hoban there. Vlad... was he called before? I remember someone from Pandurii was, but was it him?

Vlad was called against Poland 'B' I think.


Gaman is there, when he's a reserve at Astra and hasn't played too much lately.
Mateiu deserved clearly a call, but I think he won't get any chance as long as he stays at Brasov. That's Piturca, we can't change him.

Are you serious? Then what are Lobont, Grigore or Rat doing there? Rusescu, Latolvlevic or Popa have barely been called to the NT and are less than integrated to the team. No, it´s because he doesn´t accept to be questioned and he was about STeaua players after the last game

Well if he calls Chitu he can call Mateiu. It isn´t that. He´s just stupid.. Mateiu was also called against Poland. What the hell do you expect from Nicolae Grigore?

Guys, I hate Piturca to death, but let's not forget that the U21 team is starting the EURO 2015 campaign on June 7th. And that's more important then an "amical" with T&T, so that's maybe why there's not Anton&co. Maybe it's already planified and he will try them against Slovakia, in August.

You can't start a U21 campaign when you are 22.

The new U21 campaign is for players born in 1992 (or younger). Any player born before 1992 can't play with the U21 team in this new campaign.

We start in Faroe Islands btw.



If Piturca has something against Steaua players then he's more stupid than I thought. But I don't think he's THAT stupid; press and fans would eat him alive, he would be dead in one month. I think he just wants to give them a rest.

Yes, if you were 21 when the campaign started.

You stated the campaign is starting. I stated Anton is 22.

GICA has more details to inform you...
