Burleanu said the Federation is gonna create a U20 team:

”Pentru prima dată în istorie, începând cu 2021, reușim să creăm o nouă națională. Naționala U20, destinată generațiilor 2002 și 2003, își propune să ofere o continuitate jucătorilor tineri după terminarea junioratului.

Această națională va intra într-un program intens de meciuri amicale care vor debuta în septembrie 2021, program care se va întinde până în iunie 2023, urmând ca apoi, din septembrie 2023, să intre în campania de calificare pentru următorul Campionat European din 2025.

Această decizie are la bază o realitate cu care ne confruntăm astăzi, și anume avem un număr foarte mare de jucători de perspectivă pe care îi regăsim la nivelul Ligii 1.”



If I understand correctly, the goal is to form a team for the U21 European Championship of 2025 (qualifiers will start on September 2023).
So while the next U21 generation will play the next qualifiers (starting in September 2021), there will be a U20 team playing friendlies in order to get ready in September 2023.

Yeah, it seems interesting to have a bridge between the U19 and the U21. Whatever can be done to make us more.competitive is good news

I assume it would be the same situation as Hungary and Slovenia, so yes, I expect so. Confirmed below:


Well that is fantastic then! Our boys will have plenty of chances to prove themselves
The only problem I see is that the next generation won't have official games, which are important for the kids to get experience.

It's a great chance indeed.
Burleanu moved well there; it looked like UEFA would give the tournament entirely to Georgia, but in the last moments Romania appeared. Probably UEFA weren't convinced about Georgia getting the whole tournament.

That edition will be the qualifying for 2024 Olympic Games too.

FRF site made a good analysis. The first pot is deadly, from the second, Denmark and Italy are the best options, from the last one avoiding Switzerland is the best scenario

Yeah, I'd say getting Denmark in Pot 2 and avoiding the Swiss in Pot 4 would be the ideal. The rest is more or less the same.

Denmark or Wales in pot 2, and definitely avoiding the Swiss, ideally getting Slovenia

I think France and Spain would be hardest from pot 1 but they’re all very tough, yeah

Their qualifying was impressive indeed. And they were in the same group.

A bit 'hot and cold' again.

Netherlands is a big problem from Pot 2. But Germany and Hungary are ok from their pots. It couldn't be much better than this I guess.

  • 24 martie: România – Țările de Jos
  • 27 martie: Ungaria – România
  • 30 martie: Germania – România
Partidele României din grupa A se vor disputa la Budapesta.

We'll start against the hardest rival IMO. We have to fight to avoid a defeat there and then beating the Hungarians in the second match. That's the ideal way to face the decisive match.

Yeah, it seems we got the best option from pot one, one of the worst from pot 2, and a good one from 4. A double duel against Germany on march...
