Teams: Romania, River Plate
In any case the press will find a way to justify Iordanescu´s choices. I can´t make peace with their stupidity. Their editorials usually say nothing. They are surprised we "suddenly" lost or they talk about the players quality. That´s the most their brain can do. Anyway...
Regarding the squad, without Maxim, we´ll be short in creativity. Lucian can´t pull a whole game, then there´s only Stanciu. We can be glad they made it and Alibec too. In our football, we have to be happy in some signs of sanity, like calling some of your best players .Stanciu and Alibec only counted for the NT this year, neither of them (now with good chances of being starters) played in the qualifiers. that says a lot already. Atleast Iordanescu "reacted", after trying 1000 times the same old talentless players. We have to be glad Alibec beats Hora, probably because of his goal vs Ukraine.
We have 2 good strikers, a couple of good creative midfielders (that almost never play together...). Big problems in LW, and we are a little better on the RW. No creativity in CM (their limitations were clear against Ukraine, many senseless passes), 2 slow starting side backs.
I´d say the keeper, AM and striker are the spots when we are best covered, ironically for such a defensive team
