Friendly: Russia - Romania

Tuesday, 15 November. 18:00 Romanian time

Akhmat Arena, Grozny



Apparently some players like Moti, Keseru, Chiriches, Hoban...won't even travel to this game, which is good because we wanna see some new faces.


Historical head to head: 1 match, 1 Romanian win.

Historical head to head against Soviet Union: 9 matches, 3 Romanian wins, 2 draws, 4 Soviet wins.

What I'd do...


-------------------------Pantilimon
------------Tiru-------------------------Grigore
Sapunaru---------------------------------------------Lato
-------------------------Nedelcu
--------------Bicfalvi----------------Marin
-------Ivan--------------------------------Grozav
-------------------------Andone


Alternative: Playing with Sapunaru as CB instead of Grigore, and Enache (yes Enache) as RB.

I forgot Nedelcu was called.. this is a really interesting team

With some fixes in the next callups + some of these guys getting their chances and doing well, we might just see a much stronger team fielded in March. At least I hope. Although there are more problems beyond that.

Cum ar putea arăta primul "unsprezece" al României la amicalul cu Rusia: Pantilimon - Benzar, Ţîru, Dr. Grigore, Toşca - Adi Popa, Nedelcu, R.Marin, Maxim - Bogdan Stancu, Ivan

I think that's a random line-up they thought about though.

Ivan is out because of an injury

I´d do:

Lung

Benzar-Sapunaru-Tiru-Lato

Bicfalvi-Marin

Rotariu-Maxim-Grozav

Andone

Grozav deserves his chance, and Maxim HAS to start. There aren´t many options to Rotariu, so let´s give him a chance to show his worth. Andone was one of the decent players on friday, and he and Alibec should be the strikers in the near future

At the back, Lung has waited for his chance for too long, and Grigore can´t play for anything in the world

Yeah. He is one of the young players that could already help and he is in a good form

fuuuuuuuuuck :'(

I was really hoping to see him. He can offer something. Hopefully a friendly before the Denmark game he'll get a chance...

that's a good enough lineup to me, our defence still makes me feel queasy just looking at it, but Lato can't do worse than the other options and I definitely don't want to see our big 'captain' at the back for this one.. he was a massive disappointment, even considering he plays in fcking Qatar

it's clear Andone is our best striker from the available ones, I remember a really good chance from a tough angle against Poland. Maybe Keseru to come on later.

Keseru is already in Bulgaria.

Strikers: Andone, Stancu, plus Grozav and Rotariu.



Tata, Chiriches, Moti, Stanciu, Chipciu and Keseru returned to their clubs.

Sunt vești proaste, lista accidentaților s-a mărit. În afara jucătorilor care au acuzat probleme medicale sau cei care au fost învoiți, au apărut și alte accidentări. Azi au părăsit lotul Maxim, Ivan și Benzar.

Maxim a acuzat o accidentare a ligamentului. Benzar are o contractură, o încărcare pe coapsă și nu merită să riște un efort pentru a nu suferi ceva mai grav. Ivan are o entorsă de gleznă.

Ovidiu Hoban, Nicolae Stanciu, Alex Chipciu, Cosmin Moți, Claudiu Keșeru, Ciprian Tătărușanu și Vlad Chiricheș sunt ceilalți 8 jucători care nu vor face deplasarea în Rusia.

Cum arată lotul României pentru meciul cu Rusia:

Portari: Pantilimon, S. Lung, Cojocaru
Fundași: Săpunaru, Țîru, D. Grigore, Toșca, S. Filip, G. Enache, Latovlevici
Mijlocași: Bicfalvi, R. Marin, Ad. Popa, Prepeliță, Dr. Nedelcu
Atacanți: B. Stancu, Fl. Andone, Grozav, D. Rotariu.
No Maxim and Benzar either.

At least everyone will have a chance to play, except the 3rd GK, who will likely get injured on the way to the cabins anyway.

Maxim...when he was certain to be a starter...

Not much can be done with that team. only watch Tiru and see if Grozav or Rotariu grew some balls. Maybe andone getting some confidence, but It isn`t even much useful as a test when you are forced to use Grogore, Sapunaru, Popa or Stancu

Maybe the fact that Hoban, Keseru, Chipciu and Moti were left out means Daum is willing to drop them. I certainly hope so. Enough with that mediocricy
