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.
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

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

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
ROMÂNIA: Radu - Manea, Nedelcearu, Pașcanu, Fl. Ștefan - T. Băluță, Cicâldău - Man, I. Hagi, Fl. Coman - Pușcaș
|GICA||With Dragus out, the importance of Olaru grows. He has to be ready in the moment Radoi requires him.|

What our players learned from the main NT:
Rumaniac, you have officially become Romanian.

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.

I think the biggest favourite in the tournament are England.

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

Scary best 11 of the tournament

Dragus out...Now we are really screwed. I saw him as a key player against the giants. With him and Morutan out we have no one that can be decisive in offense. Only subs are Ivan, Petre and Olaru
Having 3 games in 6 days I say goodbye to our chances. Even if we had a dream start against Croacia we won't resist on the next games if Hagi, Man and Coman have no real replacement
