Well Andone is out until the end of the year, at least.

I guess if I had to think of any “major” missing ones.. Manea (unless he still counts as a domestic player somehow), Bicfalvi, Grozav ?

Honestly, it’s a pretty extensive prelist, the U21s one makes sense too, and I’m glad Baluta was called to seniors too as we need him

Yeah, very long list. Even Romario "Serie B too good for me" Benzar was called. A. Baluta, Tiru, Rapa, won't make it either I suppose

I'd like Cretu to be tested

Very interesting squad overall. Haven't had time to digest it but definitely a different style of selection. No Ionut Radu is a huge surprise but I guess it's because he hasn't been playing. Same with R. Marin. Form clearly matters.

No surprises in offense, exactly who we here thought should be called.

Midfielders: Deac over Man; I don't like that. Cretu will probably get the debut. Our best, otherwise.

Defenders: yeah, about as expected. Nedelcearu -- Chiriches if fit, and Hanca & Bancu on the sides. Seems about as good as we can do right now.

Conclusion: not bad, IMO Man should've been there, unless he's injured??

There's also a reserve list:

Alți 6 fotbaliști se află pe lista de rezervă, staff-ul echipei naționale urmând a apela la aceștia în cazul apariției vreunei indisponibilități:

Cristian Bălgrădean (CFR Cluj, 0/0), Valentin Crețu (FCSB, 0/0), Andrei Ivan (Universitatea Craiova, 7/0), Deian Sorescu (Dinamo, 0/0), Marius Constantin (Universitatea Craiova, 4/0), Mihai Bordeianu (CFR Cluj, 2/0).

Radu and Sorescu should have been called. Also add Marin to the reserves list until he starts playing.

T. Baluta not in the U21s or seniors is worrying.. but he needs to find himself a team to play on loan or otherwise...
At least we know Man, Mihaila, Dobre, Chindris, Pascanu, Ratiu etc will be fine in the U21s for now and should still be in the seniors in near future
Mitrita is in the US so of course cannot come.

Stefan, Cretu, Bus, iancu, Hanca are decent and happy enough to see them in the team. Grigore and Tosca not quite... Bus or Iancu over Keseru is slightly questionable, even though I like them too and they deserve their chance, Keseru seems to like scoring against these Nordic teams, despite what we feel about him lol. But I think they may do alright given the chance.. Alibec or Puscas would be my starters though. Let's see

Most worrying club situations right now:
Manea (needs to play SOMEWHERE -- wtf is going on with him??)
T. Baluta (needs a loan or transfer)
Radu (needs a loan or transfer)
R. Marin (needs a transfer)
Dragomir (needs a transfer)

Biggest missing names:

I. Radu (not playing but still deserved to be named in the 3 imo)
R. Marin (not playing at Ajax, hopefully transfer is imminent)
Baluta (not playing)
Camora (papers not finalized I think)
Andone (injured)
Mitrita (in the US & cannot quarantine for 2 weeks)
C. Ganea (I assume he will be considered once he starts playing at his new club in Greece)
Keseru
Paun
Benzar
Mogos
Tiru
Rapa
A. Rus
Rotariu
Bordeianu
Budescu (fitness & ethic concerns I'm sure)
Manea (not playing)
Lung Jr
I. Cristea
Grozav
Anton
Man, Mihaila, Dobre, Ratiu, etc (with U21s)

Keseru -- perhaps, but if Radoi is building for the future...
Paun -- not yet recovered
Benzar -- we all know why
Mogos -- LOL
Tiru -- he's kinda unknown to me atm
Rapa -- perhaps a bit unexpected, seems to be doing OK in Poland
A. Rus -- not like we expected much
Rotariu -- could be considered I guess
Bordeianu -- in reserve squad
Lung Jr -- an option
I. Cristea -- an option
Grozav -- c'mon
Anton -- has he been playing? seems to be returning to Romania...

I said “biggest” names. I didn’t say I wanted all of them to be there ... a list made out of boredom and for curiosity since Digisport started a much smaller one I compiled a list from recently capped players or 'known' names, not just ones deserving to be there. I said Radu and Sorescu should have been, though

Interesting list.

Man is the biggest absence and worst call IMO. He is in good form, and we don't have anyone of his qualities, specially on the right. The option is Deac who had proven to be terribly slow for this level

The rest of absences are due to lack of games, and therefore expected.

Goalies: Is good to give chances to in form players like Lazar. Maybe Lung instead of Nita would have made sense. Radu needs to get a club that uses him, the mesaage is clear

Defence: Not much to say. Grigore is there because of his experience. Chiriches is always doubtful, so we need someone with experience. The options are slim. I like Rus but he is not always starter in Hungary.
If Hanca can play RB that would be good, Burca there is only an emergency option
LB's are the best option. I hope Stefan is up to the challenge. Radoi knows him

Midfield

Many CM options as expected. Cretu will have his chance for sure. Marín and Baluta out, they need to play first
Mitrita's absemce is sad, we don't have another player of his skills

Attack

Alibec is the best news. Last chance for him to prove he can at least be better than Keseru and help us.
I don't expect much from Iancu and Bus

Maybe we play one of the games with Burca as RB...If Manea isn't available/fit, I'd promote Boboc to the senior team. The U21 team has options to replace him.

I don't know why he didn't call Mitrita. Let's pray Alibec doesn't get injured before the games.


-----------------------------------Tata
---------------Nedelcearu----------------Chiriches
Hanca-------------------------------------------------------Bancu/Stefan
----------------------------------Cretu
-------------Cicaldau------------------------Stanciu
Maxim------------------------------------------------------Coman
--------------------------------Alibec

I was thinking on the exact same team GICA, except that IDK if Puscas is better upfront. Both should start in one game maybe

Let's hope all the players are available.

Except Sorescu and maybe Cretu, I hope he doesn't have to call any of those. Particularly terrible this reserve list.

Razvan Marin played preseason for Ajax and just signed with Cagliari now (apparently).

He should have at least been on the reserves list..

I think the reserves list has to be domestic. Let Marin settle at Cagliari... I hope it works in the end.

And yes, Sorescu was the interesting appearance on that list.

I don't know why he didn't call Mitrita.
Because of the quarantine rules for the US. I don't think it's worth it for him to stay 4 weeks in quarantine for some stupid Nations League games.

Maybe vs Iceland it would be worth it...
