Romania and Argentina have disputed 5 games, with 3 wins for Argentina, 1 draw and 1 win for Romania. Ironically the 3 Argentinian victories came in friendly games, while the draw and the Romanian win were in World Cups.
It's the first time Argentina plays in Romanian territory.

This is one of the friendlies, in Buenos Aires in 1994


This one in 1998, with Radu Niculescu scoring for Romania


Since in some of the friendlies Romania used a 'B' squad, they aren't considered official by the FRF.

Luchin, Torje and Grozav don't deserve a place right now in the squad (considering their club situation...in Luchin's case it's just that he is nothing special at all), especially not Grozav!

I think Stoian definitely deserved a call up now, he got called when he played less than now. It would make so much more sense that Stoian gets Grozav's place, they are similar players just that the one is in a bad club situation, until he solves it he shouldn't be in the NT squad, easy as that. Sapunaru and Radu wouldn't hurt either....

Can you believe we have players like Chiriches, Radu, Mutu, Radoi, Chivu, Sapunaru, Sanmartean still playing but we won't see most of them in the NT... Chiriches only because of injury, the rest for other reasons...

Imagine this:

----------Tatarusanu/Pantilimon
Sapunaru--Chiriches---Chivu---Radu
----------Radoi-----Bourceanu
Chipciu-------------------Sanmartean
---------------Maxim
-------------Mutu/Marica

Subs: Panti/Tata, Matel, Gardos, Papp/Moti, Rat/Lato, Lazar/Nistor/Pintilii, Tanase, Stanciu/Stoian, Rusescu/Stancu/Marica

I know Chivu and Mutu have deteriorated but it's nice to think how strong we could be if they hadn't fcked up.. although part of it is due to their age as well. And this is still leaving many very solid players aside.

U Craiova

----------Boloni----Lupescu
Dumitrescu--Dobrin/Balaci--Hagi
-----------------Mutu

I agree that Radoi should be considered... Mutu said that Chivu should retire... but I agree with the rest. Muresan, I'd like to know tabs on him too.

What's going on with Danalache?

Gardos, Papp (I guess), Luchin and probably D.Grigore will be the CBs called.

Piturca is stubborn as hell, because at this point we should have tested more defenders.



Chivu is not playing at all, he has many physical problems, and, beyond that, he retired from the NT. Sorry, but he's a thing of the past.
And a midfield Radoi-Bourceanu is basically good for defending, but not for the rest of aspects. I don't see what Radoi could add to this NT to be honest. There are better midfielders than him, and I don't think he's convincing enough as defender. Playing in the desert with the camels doesn't help him either.

Popa was not called, but Pintilii instead.

As we can see with the current call ups he has no intentions whatsoever to build a solid and serious rom. NT. Buzbuchi, that's the fresh blood we need the most right now :shakepalm:

why did he call Lobont then for months and now suddenly he isn't good anymore....and why doesn't he search for solutions where we actually need them.

Tudorie could be Piti's biggest surprise...

He's not on the U18,U19 or U21 squad... and he's starting to be a starter for Otelul.....

Pathetic. He makes it worst every time. If any young player deserved a shot that was Stanciu
