EURO Qualifiers: Norway vs Romania

Not the most experienced, but personally I would like close to:

—————Tata/Radu
Benzar-Nedelcearu-Tosca/Cristea-Bancu
————-Baluta-Marin
Man————Ianis—-Maxim/Stanciu
—————Puscas

But I see

———————Tata
Benzar-Nedel/Sapu-Grigore-Bancu
—————Baluta-Marin
Man/Chipciu—Stanciu—-Grozav/Maxim
—————Keseru/Puscas

Would be nice if Cicaldau or Nistor got some minutes in these qualifiers as we all like their qualities and what they can do. But of course Baluta and Marin are the main CM-DM pairing

Of course it would be great to see more of Ianis and Man too. Rotariu Maxim Stanciu all have good qualities as well, so we have lots of choices in AM, wing, and CM.

Chipciu, Grigore, Keseru, Sapu to a degree, are the remaining eyesores. Deac not great.

I don't expect surprises in this game.

Tata

Benzar-Sapunaru-Grigore-Bancu

Baluta-Marin

Stanciu

Almost certain until there. Then either Deac or Chipciu on the right and Puscas/Keseru upfront. On the left, maybe Grozav or Maxim, but he could even use Chipciu there. The youngsters are not very integrated yet, so we shall see a boring and limited line up

It wouldn't be a shock, but there aren't great alternatives. It's early for Ianis. Maxim isn't doing great either. Unless he uses 2 fowards

Offensive midfield

Conservative Contra:
(R)Deac----Stanciu-----Chipciu(L)


Balanced Contra:
Chipciu------Stanciu-----Maxim


Offensive Contra:
Chipciu-----Stanciu-----Grozav


Surprising Contra:
Chipciu------Ianis-------Maxim/Grozav

or

Deac-------Ianis-------Chipciu



I see Chipciu a 100% starter for Contra.

Why not clone Chipciu and play him on both sides??
NoName and Hagibest like this.

Cicâldău is out from the squad due to some injury.

Yeah. Fortunately they say he'll be fit for the U21

Some nice photos on the NT FB page with the kids winning the Village Cup on the way to Oslo. Pretty nice to take the 14 kids there to cheer our team on.

Digi:

Quote:
Dacă ar fi să ne raportăm la ce a făcut Contra la ultima şedinţă de pregătire, formaţia tricolorilor ar fi ultra - ofensivă! Judecând după ce s-a întâmplat în capitala Norvegiei, România ar trebui să arate astfel:

Tătăruşanu - Chipciu, Săpunaru, Grigore, Bancu - Marin, Stanciu - Deac, Keşeru, Grozav - Ţucudean.

I don't think we'll play like that.


Quote:
Folosirea unui singur închizător - Răzvan Marin, care e mai mult genul de mijlocaş box to box - e pusă sub semnul întrebării. Cel mai probabil, selecţionerul, ştiind că va fi privit de norvegieni, a vrut să testeze, din informaţiile Digi Sport echipa urmând să arate mult mai "aşezată". În absenţa lui Cicâldău, Tudor Băluţă pare soluţia logică, iar marea dilemă a tehnicianului primei reprezentative e legată de folosirea lui Stanciu sau a lui Ianis Hagi.

Marin is out because of a muscular problem

I can't believe our luck

It's more important who plays in midfield in the place of Marin than Chipciu as RB.

We'll probably play Anton-Baluta. Nistor-Baluta is too much for Contra I guess.

Journalism...

UPDATE 14:17 Contra va juca in sistemul 4-4-2, iar cea mai mare surpriza este ca Razvan Marin nu se numara printre titulari. Marin nu este accidentat, insa pare sa nu intre in calculele selectionerului pentru acest meci.

Sport.ro and journalism don't go in the same sentence...

But who will be left out of the squad this match... Probably Rotariu. Maybe Cristea?


Another pearl: Echipa probabila a Romaniei 4-4-2: Tatarusanu - Benzar, Sapunaru, Grigore, Bancu - Anton, Baluta - Deac, Stanciu, Chipciu - Keseru

Strange 4-4-2, that

Well, of course. Can't be too offensive. It would be a disaster if actually tried to win a game.
