Wait is it the same Puskas who laughably missed an open net against Albania or Macedonia or something? It was on ESPN's top 10 bloopers of the season or something.

Both teams were defensively a mess but Romania were the better team and could have scored more really if they wanted to (they sat back most of the 2nd half). Croatia were awful at all levels

Damn you guys couldn't have kept the game a bit closer? Now, it's going to be much harder to get that Olympic qualifying spot since Romania only needs one more decent win to have the goal difference edge over Serbia.

For those that don't know. If England qualify directly to the semi finals, then pretty much 2/3 2nd best placed teams will qualify for the Olympics. Croatia is pretty much 100% out now considering the difficulty of the group and who their remaining opponents are.

Lots of surprises so far from the EE sides. Serbia and Croatia underperforming while Poland and Romania are over-performing

First half was very open both teams could have scored more goals. Croatia was controlling possession while Romania was constantly a threat on the counter. Second half Romania sat back more not countering as much took advantage of a terrible give away by the Croatia defense and it was goodnight after that. Croatia losing Brekalo early was a big loss as he and Vlasic by far there best attacking threats.
