I respect Albania. The only country that ever officially banned religion.

Nice to see Stancu and Gardos on the "affiche", both of whom won't play.

Not one centimeter. There's not enough cash for the real goal, I hear.

Good thing that Torje is not there anymore.... he's just a very average player at best...
Cosmin Matei and Dragos Grigore are in Mogosoaia right now, they will be called
HOPE to see Florin Tanase or some young players in the squad

The squad:

Portari: Ciprian Tătărușanu (Steaua), Costel Pantilimon (Manchester City), Silviu Lung jr. (Astra)

Fundași: Vlad Chiricheș (Tottenham), Valerică Găman (Astra), Răzvan Raț (Rayo Vallecano), Alexandru Mățel (Astra), Cristi Manea (Viitorul), Bogdan Mitrea (Viitorul), Dragoș Grigore (Dinamo), Bogdan Vătăjelu (CSU Craiova)

Mijlocași: Mihai Pintilii (Steaua), Alexandru Bourceanu (Trabzonspor), Costin Lazăr (PAOK), Alexandru Mateiu (Brașov), Bănel Nicoliță (Nantes), Cosmin Matei (Dinamo), Cristi Tănase (Steaua), Florin Tănase (Viitorul)

Atacanți: Alexandru Maxim (VfB Stuttgart), Alexandru Chipciu (Steaua), Ciprian Marica (Getafe), Raul Rusescu (Braga)



Bogdan Vatajelu?

Manea is 16 years old lol. I don't think Mitrea is the big thing, but well at least he's a left footed defender.

Happy to see Florin Tanase and Mateiu in the list, but I think Anton and Nistor should be there.

Shocking squad. Mitrea is very average, but Calling Matei, Mateiu(players neglected by him before) and Trusting Tanase is amazing by Piturca´s standard.

Calling Manea is pushing it, he just debuted...

Ignores Nistor for a year. Calls a no name from Liga 2.

That saidvMateiu and Tanase the good one is a good step. I doubt well see Nistor again, btw, since he made that one mistake in a game he played.

I thought he would call Vali Lazar and not Matei to be honest. He never seemed to like Matei that much. Better one than none, I guess.
