Still can't believe Vatajelu gets ignored.. maybe Lato can offer something going forward. And at least Rotariu and Marin are there. Now let's see his lineup and tactics.. is Matel injured btw? Benzar is good but never too convinced of him at RB.

I´m really worried about these games. The game against Montenegro was very bad, Daum is just starting to know the team and the players form is very low in general. Only Maxim is doing well lately. I still believe in Alibec and that he needs his chance, but he isn´t at 100% either.

Daum will have to be very inspired to make this team work offensively. And loosing points in this double will mean a drastic loss in our chances of qualifying. I can see a disaster happening.

Matel is injured. I like Benzar, he has a good attitude, is good going foward and does good crosses. We´ll have to see how he does at a higher level.

Lato can help offensively which is something we need ATM

Yeah, it´s good news. Armenia looked very weak against Denmark, only their keeper who had an incredible day saved a big difference. They had a couple of chances but they mostly defended.
I guess with Mkhitaryan they would have been better

Belgianul Rudi Verkempinck, 50 de ani, secundul lui Daum, admite că Dorin Rotariu ar putea însemna mutarea specială printre titularii de la Erevan.

"Pentru mine, Roti este aripă dreapta. Mi se pare că are un aport mai bun acolo, fiindcă are stofă de marcator și intră cu stângul spre interior, la gol, ca Robben.

E o armă extraordinară, mai ales că poate schimba din mers pe flancul stâng, o mișcare care pune în dificultate adversarul.

Eu îmi spun însă doar o părere, decizia finală îi va aparține selecționerului", a zis Rudi Verkempinck într-un interviu în exclusivitate pentru Gazeta Sporturilor.

The coachs liking the idea of Rotariu.

Tosca as CB?


mmm I have some doubts about that team. I mean, I don't know if that's what Daum is thinking...


GSP says this

Echipa probabilă pentru Armenia

Tătăruşanu - Benzar, Săpunaru, Dr. Grigore, Toşca - Hoban - Ad. Popa, Maxim, Stanciu, Chipciu - Andone

That Digi team was made out of the "most in form" players.

Apparently GSP saw Daum´s notes. That team looks realistic. It´s not bad, but Andone had too many chances without scoring. Alibec deserves his chance and he is also much more useful for an offensive approach.
I think that a game like this one could be good for Rotariu. A Maxim-Stanciu duo is a must

După Steliano Filip, şi Alexandru Maxim acuză probleme medicale, mijlocaşul lui Stuttgart având şanse minime să joace în meciul cu Armenia, programat sâmbătă, de la 19:00, la Erevan.

Daum speră să fie apt pentru Kazahstan
Maxim are o inflamaţie articulară, anunţă Digi Sport, şi nu a putut efectua antrenamentul oficial susţinut astăzi de tricolori. Maxim era anunţat titular în partida de sâmbătă seară, însă în aceste condiţii va lua cel mult loc pe banca de rezerve, sperându-se într-o refacere a acestuia pentru partida cu Kazahstan.

Într-o situaţie similară se află şi Steliano Filip, încă incomplet refăcut. Dinamovistul a rezistat doar 20 de minute la antrenamentul de astăzi şi foarte probabil titular în partida de mâine va fi stelistul Alin Toşca.

Prosport team:
Tătăruşanu - Benzar, Săpunaru, Dr. Grigore, Toşca - Hoban - A. Popa, B. Stancu, N. Stanciu, Chipciu - Fl. Andone

It's a bit weird in midfield. Maybe Hoban and Stanciu as CMs.


How I'd play with the players called by Daum:

--------------------------Tatarusanu
-------------Sapunaru--------------------Grigore
Benzar-------------------------------------------------Latovlevici
---------------------------Hoban
---------------Marin-----------------Stanciu
--Rotariu--------------------------------------Stancu
--------------------------Alibec

Horrible news. He was supposed to start...


The line up according to Digi is:

Tata

Benzar-Sapu-Grigore-Lato

Hoba-Marin

Popa-Stanciu-Chipciu

Stancu

I only like that he tries Marin (altough he may not be ready for this level) and Lato over Tosca (who is more offensive like we need). The rest are the usual one dimensional players, Popa, Chipciu and Stancu. It´s obvious we won´t play any football like that
