Happy pre-bday arionesei! Sa dea dumezeu un gol pentru Romania si zero pentru Franta! Can't wait for this one! I'm surprised it's in Constanta, I guess the result over Holland makes it our lucky pitch! Let's hope for no injuries to Mutu, Chivu, Radoi, Rat and Lobont or we'll die.

A very appropriate title. This one is huge.

France named their 22 man roster yesterday, which includes Ribery and Vieira being recalled.

Their team:

Goalkeepers: Steve Mandanda (Olympique Marseille), Hugo Lloris (Olympique Lyon)

Defenders: William Gallas (Arsenal), Philippe Mexes (AS Roma), Eric Abidal (Barcelona), Patrice Evra (Manchester United), Bakary Sagna (Arsenal), Gael Clichy (Arsenal), Rod Fanni (Stade Rennais)

Midfielders: Patrick Vieira (Inter Milan), Jeremy Toulalan (Olympique Lyon), Alou Diarra (Girondins Bordeaux), Lassana Diarra (Portsmouth)

Forwards: Thierry Henry (Barcelona), Karim Benzema (Olympique Lyon), Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich), Nicolas Anelka (Chelsea), Yoann Gourcuff (Girondins Bordeaux), Sidney Govou (Olympique Lyon), Florent Malouda (Chelsea), Florent Sinama-Pongolle (Atletico Madrid), Hatem Ben Arfa (Olympique Marseille).

Damn their D looks pretty good with Gallas, Evra, Mexes and Sagna and Clichy all very good players. Midfield is very tough too with the Diarra's. If Ribery plays it will add a new demension to their game, so let's hope he will be a sub. I think Gouvu is now injured. But their forwards will be Henry and Benzema or Anelka even. Goian and Chivu will have their work cut out. I can't wait for this. I just want to see some goals from our boys!

Maybe Piti will realize that Szekely is better and will have no choice but to field the Steaua player. Otherwise, between Banel and Szekely, Piti would have surely gone for Banel.

Damn Banel was doing really well, with his current form he was very important in such a game and i preferred him over Szekely.

We are having too many problems. We are one week away and Mutu, Chivu, Rat, Radoi, Lazar and Contra are not in their best physical form(i suspect some of them won´t make it to the game). Besides, Piturca is in his worst moment in the NT and he is less than inspired and the general atmosphere in the team is not good. Maybe a draw that leaves us with chances is the best we can hope for.

I´d like to see Muresan, Ogararu and Ghionea in the team and maybe Trica or Aliuta too. At least they are in form and we need players with confidence.
But i expect 2 Dm´s and Cocis and probably Petre on the right.

Oh yeah Radoi and Rat are in question too. So pretty much all our best players are not 100%. We really need an inspired game from our boys after weak performances in the first 2 games. And it won't happen without our best players. At this point I'd be more than happy with a tie.
