And Spain lost 3-1 to Italy. Granted, Italy are one of the top sides in this tournament

Belgium are weak at defending. We did 3 goals against them with a team quite alternative.

I think the biggest favourite in the tournament are England.

Romania in U21 EURO 2019

I think the big three are England, Italy, and France. Two of which are in our group..

Germany and Serbia can also be dangerous. You can never count out Croatia in youth level, but I don’t think they are much stronger than us even without Marin, Morutan, Dragus. We can beat them.

I think the weakest has to be Austria.

The 4500 seater San Marino arena will be full tomorrow. Probably 4000 Romanian fans at least. (FRF)

If our team can't handle missing Dragus I don't think we would've done much better with him (still a pity that he got injured).

With Dragus out, the importance of Olaru grows. He has to be ready in the moment Radoi requires him.

Well, I see fans are usually quite optimistic before the games and loose it easily. This time even when I'm convinced we have a superb generation, I don't think we are top 4 in the world. And getting past this group would mean that.
Without Marin (the best U21 player) and Dragus/ Morutan (the most talented and necessary backups, cause players like Hagi and Coman don't play at 100% the whole game) our chances hace reduced significantly. I still see us doing a good job but the third game will be specially hard

Against Spain, Coman was invisible, while Dragus looked as the only player capable of making some damage of that side (without Man, Hagi and Puscas)

Ivan is a sub in Austria, while Petre is a striker. Olaru is good but has 3 goals in his career

Romania is both the team with most senior NT players and the one with more players elegible for the next U21 campaign.

Both remarcable achievements, altough the first is explained by the lack of quality of the senior NT and the latter becausr of the weakness of the 96/97 generation

Still, it's fantastic that younger kids made it out of that group adn have already showed good things for the seniors

So many matches totally ignored, so many dark periods when the press didn't even write a single article about them, so many matches not even televised...

Winning or losing, but the U21 team will get finally this week the treatment they deserve from the Romanian media. I hope they keep it at least until the next campaign.

Radoi:

Quote:
"În momentul de faţă, încerc să văd informaţiile despre Croaţia, să vedem jucătorii care pot anihila momentele în care n-avem posesia. Îmi place foarte mult la ei organizarea defensivă, plus că încearcă să-şi impună ritmul pe tot parcursul jocului. Aici ar putea apărea o problemă pentru noi deoarece în această campanie e clar că am avut o problemă. Ori suferim în primele 15 minute, ori între minutele 60 şi 75. Mi-e frică de partea asta, ca în intervalul ăsta să nu primim goluri.

E clar că n-o să putem avea în permanenţă posesia balonului şi va trebui să ştim ce să facem şi când nu avem mingea. Strategia va fi să jucăm de la portar, să încercăm să avem posesia atât de mult cât ne va permite adversarul şi pregătirea noastră fizică"

Yeah, we said it so many times...the kids got attention on their own. Of course if there's a dissapointment the prrss will write to destroy only to get some attention

But the people seem to love this team and that is what matters the most. And I hope they remember no matter the result
