WCQ Andorra - Romania

Estadio Comunal, Andorra


Friday, 11 October, 21:30 Romanian time.


Definitive 'foreigners' list:

Bogdan Lobonţ (AS Roma), Vlad Chiricheş (Tottenham Hotspur), Dorin Goian (Asteras Tripolis), Răzvan Raţ (West Ham United), Gabriel Torje (Espanyol Barcelona), Costin Lazăr (PAOK Salonic), Alexandru Maxim (VfB Stuttgart), Claudiu Keşeru (SC Bastia), Ciprian Marica (Getafe), Bogdan Stancu (Genclerbirligi), Gheorghe Bucur (Kuban Krasnodar) and Gheorghe Grozav (Terek Groznîi).

Piturca renounced to Nicolita and Papp.



3 games between Andorra and Romania in history, obviously all with Romanian victories.


Romania needs to win by the biggest possible margin.

It would be really nice to see a Keseru-Marica partnership. Kind of sad to see Mutu denounced completely over the "goals" situation.

How has Goian been doing, and Lazar?

I don't know, but Lazar is an important asset for the midfield. His absence against Turkey was maybe more important than we thought.

Goian is only a short term solution. Gardos has been doing well lately. I had doubts about him, because he's prone to make stupid mistakes from time to time, but since he's a starter at Steaua he's showing very good things and he's playing very focused. It would be so stupid to call D.Grigore instead of him. Chiriches-Gardos can be the CB couple of the future, they have the potential.


Against defensive teams like Andorra, creative midfielders and skillful & fast wingers will be surely needed. I say this thinking in Nistor and Stoian. Maybe Piturca should have thought more carefully about that.

I would go with

------------Tata,
Matel, Gardos, Chiriches, Rat
------------Bourceanu
Torje--------------------------Tanase(he will start him)
--------------Maxim
---------Marica------Keseru

but personally if I had the choice it would be this..

-----------Silviu Lung Jr.
Sapunaru----Gardos---Chiriches---Rat
----------------Bourceanu
Torje----------------------------Maxim
---------------Stanciu
----------Keseru-------Mutu

Stupid (but typical) of Piturca to ignore players like Nistor, Stoian, Papp (I read in Italian media he was meant to start today vs. Atalanta although he didn't), Sapunaru, Nica, Mutu, etc for a game like this. And why does he keep insisting with Lobont instead of Pantilimon? Also can't believe he's still calling up Stancu after all that. I'll never understand the way this man thinks. I'm glad to see that at least Lazar, Keseru, Bucur, and Grozav are there.

For the domestic call-ups, I hope we see something like this:
Tatarusanu, Lung Jr, Matel, Gardos, Marc/Gaman, Latovlevici, Tanase, Bourceanu, C. Matei, Radut, Rotariu, Buleica, Stanciu, Iancu

What I think Piturca might field:
-----------Tata
Matel--Chiriches--Goian---Rat
--------Bourceanu
Torje------------------Tanase
---------Maxim
----Marica-----Stancu

Subs: Lung Jr, Gardos/Grigore, Lato, Lazar, Popa/Stanciu, Grozav, Bucur

What I would want to see fielded:

----------Tatarusanu
Matel----Gardos---Chiriches---Rat
------------Bourceanu
Torje----------------------------Stanciu/Tanase
---------------Maxim
----------Keseru-------Mutu/Marica

(7 from these, I can't pick lol) - Subs: Lung Jr, Papp, Gaman/Marc, Lato, Lazar, Radut, Nistor, Rotariu, Iancu, Stoian, Grozav, Bucur

If he plays with two DMs/CMs, Lazar should obv be included, but Bourceanu is our main man. Honestly, even for Piturca's level, playing with two Dms is plain stupid. We need as many goals as possible.

Forget it guys, we're not winning more than 3-0... and that's if Pi-turca uses the right players.

The only chance we have to reach the play-offs is if Netherlands gets at least 1 point vs each of Hun and Tur.

BTW Andorra is deathly boring.

Yeah, with Piturca we'll win 2-0 or 3-0. But a good coach would prepare the team to score as many goals as possible. Qualify or not qualify can depend of that, it's incredible he will take it lightly.

If he were smart for this match he would load up the midfield and play Keseru as a lone striker imo.
---------Bourceanu------
Torje---Maxim---Stanciu---Tanase before Keseru and completely destroy Andorra with creativity and skill.

Are we in danger to finish as worst 2nd placed team, if we finish second, even if we win both games?

I would also loved to see Mihai Roman, the striker, getting called, but it will not happen... Rotariu would be sweet also.
Something like

Grozav - Rotariu - Maxim - Stanciu
___________Marica

Would be nice against a team like Andorra. Some young players

yes. we also risk 3 shameful performances in Brazil if we make it there...

i don't think calling 17 years old debutants at this point of the qualification is a smart thing to do.

PS: If we manage to score arround 10goals from the 2 games, plus Hungary not winning in Holland (very possible), we would be almost sure to finish second. According to "Football-Rankings", we have 2.37% of chances to finish as worst runner-up.... so that might not be a problem at the end.

Look at the Bulgarian group and the Swiss group for worst 2nd team.

:rollani:

Rotariu, Roman and Stanciu couldn´t even do something for the U-21

BTW Steaua players Stanciu and Iancu quit the U-21 because "there are no longer chances of qualifying"

It's almost as if the U21 and NT just show up and play, there are no tactics or ideas.. game plans.. you can have very good players, with no game plan and play very bad against a team that has a plan.
