Romania’s hottest prospects, held to a draw by third division players!
On paper, Romania U23 – Italy U23 sounded like a very difficult game. On the field, though, it looked like a poor one, with Italy opposing Romania’s brightest youngsters a first eleven full of unknown players from Serie C! It ended 0-0, a result that will offer some comfort to Razvan Lucescu, who finally found a good excuse for the team assembled in the lost friendly against Israel, a week ago. There aren’t that many young players coming from behind…
Here are the lineups:
Romania U23: Tatarusanu – Homei, Grigore, Sarghi, Sepsi – Chiacu, Onicas, A. Ionescu, Parvulescu – Ionita, Alexe.
Italy U23: Gadignani – Laverone, Benassi, Pezzi, Branzani – Puadrini, Lanzolla, Scapuzzi, Bigazzi – Rossi, Giacomelli.
