If I'm not wrong Piturca will announce tomorrow the 'foreigners' list.

About the central defenders, I think they should be Chiriches, Grigore and Moti. Goian as fourth option if it's needed.

Hoban deserves a mention imo. He would help fill a void on the bench and allow us to call another offensive player like Sanmartean who doesnt defend (in theory).

Cretu got called to the U21 squad... so we will not see him in Piturca's list!

And I think that Lung Jr., in this moment, is the #1 option to start against Greece

5 CBs for just one game. He wants to be safe in case one of them (Chiriches mainly) is not in good conditions. I don't think Tamas will be used, in theory the starter CBs should be Chiriches and Grigore. But you never know with Piturca.

It was basically the expected in this list. I'm more interested in the local players.



I wouldn't be surprised if he calls one of Rus or Barboianu. They aren't players of a special quality, but they offer some tactical solutions considering the positions they can play. So maybe Piturca thought in them.

Yeah, or even Chiriches. It wouldn't be the first time.

It would be nice to start Moti-Grigorie (who know each other) and have Chiriches on RB.

News to get our hopes up:

Piturca might leave to Arabia after the Greece game. I doubt it, but I can only hope
