Very probably Spain will play with Bartra and Nacho as CBs. Someone like Alibec could make them suffer but...

At least Andone should play. It would be brainless to bench him seeing what the rest have done for the NT lately. Only Stancu would be justified.

According to Marca Spain will use many subs, for example the third keeper. It´s bad, but on the other side if they beat Iordanescu´s team it´ll be more noticeable

The third keeper will play some minutes but the starter will be Casillas.

Yesterday I heard about this team:

--------------------Casillas
----------Bartra---------------Nacho
Mario-----------------------------------Alba
-----------------Sergi Roberto
--------Koke--------------------Isco
-----Silva----------------------------Pedro
-------------------Alcácer


Spain use to play better with many midfielders, and in Romania they'll play more than in Italy when they played wˇth two strikers.
Experimental midfield with S.Roberto in that position. The defence is nothing out of this world. Silva is the key player in attack + the movements of Pedro.

A serious Romania would have a chance against this Spain.

Iordanescu:

"Mi-aş dori ca băieţii să îndrăznească mai mult, să aibă mai mult tupeu, să se autodepăşească, să se ridice la înălţimea adversarului şi să lase o impresie foarte bună aici la Cluj. Jucăm pentru prima dată pe terenul Universităţii Cluj, iar pasiunea şi dragostea cu care ne vor înconjura suporterii mâine sper să-i determine şi pe jucători să aibă un răspuns pe măsură. Nicăieri în România nu s-au epuizat biletele în doar două ore de când au fost puse în vânzare. Este un test extrem de important acest meci, foarte rar jucăm la acest nivel şi avem nevoie chiar să ne autodepăşim, pentru că jucăm cu o fostă campioană mondială şi cu o campioană a Europei"

"Voi face şi câteva schimbări în echipa de start faţă de jocul cu Lituania, pentru că vom întâlni un lot cu multe vedete, cu jucători de calibru şi sunt convins că de aici va porni şi ambiţia noastră de a ne ridica la nivelul oaspeţilor noştri"

Cristian Lopez (CFR Cluj) for Spanish media:
"The Romanian star is Stanciu, the #10 from Steaua. He's a playmaker and he's good at passing and shooting"

"The level here is quite good. I thought it would be lower, but there are very good players".

Yesterday Craioveanu said that the 3 key players of Romania are Sanmartean, Maxim (I think he didn't know he's not called) and Stanciu. And that Romania is defensive and not brilliant.


Last reports talk about this Spanish team: Casillas - Mario, Pique, Bartra, Alba - S.Roberto, Koke, Silva - Pedro, Alcacer, Nolito.

I should say that was GSP's team.

Prosport almost the same, but Keseru starting.

GSP uses to be right before the games.

With Andone it´s close to the best team with the called players, except for Sanmartean, who could play on the center or on the left.

Stancu does his best, but he is not a left winger and we need wingers. The CM is unable to build anything, as we know, and Popa is a weak option for RW, but not worse than Torje. I guess Stanciu will do the play making and there will be many long balls to the 3 upfront, specially Popa and Andone.

It´s hard to want us to loose with Andone and Stanciu starting, but if we don´t there will be no questioning Iordanescu until the Euro, and he will be able to do whatever he wants. This team is still very weak. We need another kind of striker (Alibec, Marica), better players for the wings (Matei, Maxim), better CM´s (Anton, Bourceanu, Achim, Mateiu) and players that can change a game (Aside from the previously mentioned, Budescu or Bicfalvi can do that)

Dolce´s journalist said: "Iordanescu was whistled when he went into the field, that´s strange"

Parallel world right there. They can´t understand some people want to see football and are not satisfied with 0-0´s and pathetic 1-0´s vs Lithuania
