It's the same stadium where we lost 2:1 against them. They are clearly favourites but I'm looking forward how we'll do on a proper field and against a strong team with Radoi.

It'll be interesting to see. I don't think we'll be a very strong opposition to Austria but I'd like to see three things: determination, good collaboration, passing and... a positive result, too, if possible.

I don't know what system Radoi wants to use. We have no one on the right wing except Deac... But since I only got one player wrong last time, let me try.

Tata -- Burca, Nedelcearu, Chiriches, Stefan -- Stanciu, Cretu, Maxim -- Deac, Puscas, Coman

Alibec, Hagi and Cicaldau to come in as subs.

Personally I wouldn't mind sticking to the 4-4-2 diamond. It's kinda retro... and I like retro from a time when we were more than decent.

I'd like Coman to get his chance. Ianis could play more to the right and it would work. Or Maxim, and Cicaldau in mifield. No Deac please. He is too old and slow to face a team of Bundesliga players

I read in the austrian media that Marica criticized Radoi for playing too offensively...I don't see how that was a problem against NIR considering they created like 1,5 chances in the whole game....

Not only Marica. Part of the press and public opinion are already against him. Pressure and negativity will grow with a defeat in Austria.
At least Gica Popescu said we played well and that the pitch damaged us. It's important that big names show a bit of support too.

In this COVID period (with closed doors), the NT should play in good pitchs and not necessarily in big stadiums. For example the Viitorul stadium uses to have a good pitch; that would have been a good place. Spain is gonna play against Ukraine in Real Madrid training ground lol. It doesn't really matter since fans can't enter.

Yeah very good point with the fields, i thought the same....there have to be some good football fields in Romania, it can't be that hard...

The stupidity of media and people who have no clue whatsoever shows everyday in the world....it's especially sad from an ex player like Marica who should know better but I wouldn't be surprised if he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer when i think about his career decisions...

I believe Cristi Tanase scored in that match , was his first NT goal

Same old, same old. If he wins, everything is fantastic, if he looses, he is the worst

Sadly it's hard without results on the NT. And the adversity is huge even if you do well. Clearly Radoi know how to be a good coach, but that doesn't mean he'll do great from the beginning. We got some new players that can get us to a better level but they are still young and we still have some weak spots

If there isn't patience, things are gonna get ugly, cause after Radoi, I think it'll be Petrescu's time...

Would be weird to me not starting with Alibec after his performance. Puscas is a lot less involved in the game (he's more or less just there to finish chances) and we gonna have the ball less than against NIR.

I'd buy the Digi one, but with Coman starter as LW and Maxim on the right.

4-3-3 as I thought, with Deac...
