Friendly: Chile - Romania

Thursday 31 May, 17:00 (Romanian time)

Sportzentrum Graz-Weinzödl, Graz (Austria)


Looking at the stadium and the kick-off time (considering it's Thursday), I think this is more a training game than an official game.


Players called:

Quote:
Portari: Ciprian Tătărușanu (FC Nantes, 49/0), Florin Niță (Sparta Praga, 2/0), Silviu Lung (Kayserispor, 3/0), Bogdan Lobonț (AS Roma, 85/0)

Fundași: Cristian Manea (CFR Cluj, 2/0), Romario Benzar (FCSB, 11/0), Cristian Săpunaru (Kayserispor, 25/0), Ionuț Nedelcearu (UFA, 1/0), Mihai Bălașa (FCSB, 2/0), Alin Toșca (Benevento, 11/0), Nicușor Bancu (CS U Craiova, 2/0)

Mijlocași: Mihai Pintilii (FCSB, 42/1), Alexandru Cicâldău (FC Viitorul, 1/0), Paul Anton (Anji Mahacikala, 2/0), Dragoș Nedelcu (FCSB, 1/0), Constantin Budescu (FCSB, 9/4), Nicolae Stanciu (Sparta Praga, 21/7), Dorin Rotariu (Royal Mouscron-Péruwelz, 5/1), Dennis Man (FCSB, 1/0), Alexandru Chipciu (Anderlecht, 34/4), Alexandru Mitriță (CS U Craiova, 2/0), Ciprian Deac (CFR Cluj, 14/1), Adrian Stoian (Crotone, 1/0), Gheorghe Grozav (Bursaspor, 25/5)

Atacanți: George Țucudean (CFR Cluj, 4/1), George Pușcaș (Novara, 0/0), Alexandru Băluță (CS U Craiova, 4/1)

Head to Head: 2 games, 2 Romanian wins.

Yeah, Contra is serious about renewing the squad

You are right this looks like a training game. According to the FRF site the game will be shown by PRO TV, that's good news

Chiriches is also put because he went under surgery for his shoulder.

So I guess Nedelcearu and Balasa will start alongside Sapunaru

Anyone wanna guess the starting team?

I'll give it a go, although it's more of "what I'd do" than what I think Contra will do. I'd try a more experimental team vs Finland.

Tatarusanu

Benzar -- Sapunaru -- Balasa -- Bancu

Anton -- Stanciu

Rotariu -- -- Budescu -- -- Mitrita

Tucudean

Maybe a little too offensive but it's a training game

Puscas, Baluta, Stoian, Cicaldau, Manea should also get minutes.

Chile is NOT taking any of the so called "Golden Stars" of the 2 Copa Americas under Their Belt...All new, young contingency, the FUTURE of Chilean Football as it should be !!!

All competitive players, mostly playing in Mexico, Brasil, Argentina and the rest in Chile...We also have a New Coach that just took over only 2 months ago.

This is all about the long way work for the Qatar Qualifiers...The WC that SHOULD have never HAPPENED, thanks to the SOLD OUT FIFA Employees...

Maybe Pitbull Medel will be sent off again against us. No Andone to provoke him this time though.

I mostly agree, but we should test our real DM's, which in this squad are Anton and Cicaldau. Cicaldau being a more offensive option and Anton a more experienced one. Nedelcu will probably start as DM. I think the team is offensive enough with the 4 offensive players and a CM with offensive qualities. And we need to choose between Budescu and Stanciu...I'd go with Budescu for the moment.
Also, I'd trust Manea first, because we need a solid RB, our defence has sufferd too much against strong offensives and Bancu is already very offensive

My team:

Manea----Sapunaru---Nedelcearu---Bancu

---------Nedelcu-----Anton/Cicaldau

---Rotariu---Budescu-----Mitrita

------------Puscas

On goal we can give chances to Lung or Nita on one game at least

Eurosport will also show the game. Tickets will be available right at the venue before the game.

Not defending the WC in Qatar but it's not the only WC/EC where dirty stuff happened...UEFA/FIFA sold out on many more occasions...business as usual when a lot of money is involved.

News from Contra's mouth:

Andone has an operation scheduled for the 25th.

Keseru and Moti asked to have vacation as their team gets back together June 4th.

Marin and Chiriches, Pintilii injured

Grigore has tendinitis

Hoban: I know him, no reason to call him, as I wanted to test new options.

Budescu & Stanciu give many things that work with my philosophy; Ianis Hagi is in our attention but not yet ready

There is a strategy to help the U21 qualify so able players will go there when needed.

There is a nucleus of 16-17 players Contra is counting on for the Nations League. Want to win the NL group.

He mentions R. Marin and Ganea with a 1-round suspension

I hope this doesn't mean they'll be all back.

You should be able to buy them online, I see cup tickets and the 2 friendlies' tickets on that latter site.

He mentioned Keseru, Grigore and Moti as Foresta said. Therefore, he probably would have called them. Bad news. Nevertheless, I'm confident he'll drop them when better options are available, something we can't say is clear ATM
