Preparation game: Romania vs Georgia

Friday, 3 June. 21:00 (Romanian time)

Arena Nationala, Bucharest



Last preparation game and first one with the final squad. Exactly one week later Romania will be in France playing the opening match.

I guess Andone will get his minutes.

Adrian Mutu will be condecorated by the Federation before this game.
Quote:
Atacantul Adrian Mutu, care și-a anunțat încheierea carierei de fotbalist la 20 mai, va fi premiat de Federația Română de Fotbal (FRF) pentru întreaga activitate la echipa națională înaintea meciului amical pe care România îl va disputa, vineri, pe Arena Națională cu selecționata Georgiei.

Surse din cadrul FRF au declarat că Mutu (37 de ani) va primi un trofeu din partea conducerii federației, un tricou al primei reprezentative, iar pe cubul de deasupra terenului Arenei Naționale vor rula imagini cu golurile înscrise de atacant pentru România. De asemenea, Adrian Mutu va fi invitat să adreseze câteva cuvinte suporterilor prezenți la meci la stația de amplificare a stadionului.

6 games between Romania and Georgia until now, with a balance of 4 Romanian wins and 2 draws.
One of the preparation games for Euro'96 was against Georgia too (5-0, with 3 goals scored by Moldovan). Cosmin Contra debuted in that game, replacing Hagi.

Sunt şanse mari ca Anghel Iordănescu să nu-l forţeze pe Chiricheş, iar fundaşul lui Napoli să ia loc pe banca de rezerve pentru a evita o accidentare care să-i pună în pericol prezenţa în Franţa. Astfel, Generalul va avea de ales între Valerică Găman şi Cosmin Moţi pentru al doilea post de fundaş central în meciul cu Georgia, primul urmând să fie ocupat de Dragoş Grigore.

Cum ar putea arăta România în meciul cu Georgia:

Tătăruşanu - Săpunaru, Moţi (Găman), Dr. Grigore, Raţ - Pintilii, Hoban - Torje, Stanciu, Stancu - Fl. Andone

I guess they are guessing, except for Chiriches not playing. Will Andone start? Torje over Popa?

Andone will likely start in this game.

Torje vs Popa seems the most interesting duel here.

This is probably a guess, but it's close to my guess. Although I'd say probably Popa over Torje.

Andone must start. He was away for most of the training camp and he must get used to play with his teammates. If he doesn't start, it's not a good sign from Iorda.

Line up according to Digi

România cu Georgia: Tătăruşanu - Săpunaru, Grigore, Moţi, Raţ - Hoban, Pintilii - Adi Popa, Stanciu, Stancu - Fl. Andone

This time they are probably right.

It seems logical to use Andone, considering he is the player that just arrived. The press has talked about him as a littel saviour after we finally lost a game.


But I´d go for Alibec. The 2 of them offer different things, but I think we need Alibec´s technique more than andone´s speede and strenght right now. It´s debatable, but what Alibec offers is what we have the least. And considering Alibec is new to the team (barely has over 90 minutes played), he needs every possible minute to integrate into the system, and be used as closely as possible as he is for Astra.

Seeing the second half against Ukraine, where he sometimes played as a number 10, I think they could even play together. It´d be ideal if they had played together sometime in their careers (thank you Iordanescu), but it could still help, cause they both put heavy pressure on the opposing defence, cover the ball well, and combine well. In that case Stanciu could move to the left

2nd half we should play without Pintilii. Sooner or later he'll get suspended and he has played all the minutes in the friendlies. We didn't test the couple Hoban-Prepelita, or Sapunaru in that position who can be an alternative.

I´d try Sinmartean there, so we try an alternative with Stanciu and Lucian for when we need to attack. Like against France after 20 minutes


Official line up:

România: Tătăruşanu - Săpunaru, Moţi, Grigore, Raţ - Pintilii, Hoban - A. Popa, Stanciu, Stancu - Andone

This team will have a very hard time against a small team. BTW Georgia has players on important clubs. Probably look better on paper than us

If Moldova scored against the Swiss (even though it was a friendly), so should we.. of course it would help to have more of our creative players playing

That's what annoys me about Pintilii.. passionate and hard working but poor touch and decision-making at times..

Stancu letting out his inner Lucian

Well, nothing new in this game. Typical problems in the construction. It's a pity we have this problem, because in other aspects we aren't that bad.

IMO Stanciu should take more responsability in the playmaking. With Hoban and Pintilii it's very difficult.

As expected they dropped the pressure and allowed Georgia to come foward. I hope we don´t have a dead second half because the win is already "secured"

The Swiss had many chances, but yeah, they don´t seem as anything special. Only Shaquiri must be watched. The rest is on our level. But the Swiss lack passion
