22 players for Romania’s U23. Italy, watch out! :-)

Tomorrow, starting 14.00 (Bucharest time), Romania faces Italy, on Rapid’s stadium, in a match that counts for Group A of “International Challenge Trophy”, a competition dedicated to players born after 1st of January 1986.

Romania’s team was selected and will be guided by Razvan Lucescu, who failed miserably with the useless friendly against Israel, a week ago, but now has a chance to see on the pitch promising players who could be a solution for the senior team in the near future (in bold you can see who I believe to be fitting this profile).

Here is the full list:

Goalkeepers: Ciprian Tatarusanu (Steaua), Alexandru Pena (AS Roma – Primavera)

Defenders: Bogdan Straut (Poli Iasi), Sergiu Homei (Gloria Bistrita – on loan from Dinamo), Dragos Grigore (Dinamo), Cristian Sarghi (Otelul Galati), Razvan Patriche (Sportul Studentesc – second division), Alexandru Tudose (Steaua), Iasmin Latovlevici (Gloria Bistrita – on loan from FC Timisoara), Laszlo Sepsi (FC Timisoara)

Midfielders: Liviu Antal (Otelul Galati), Hristu Chiacu (FC Timisoara), Vasile Olariu (Victoria Branesti – second division), Mihai Radut (International Curtea de Arges), Mihai Onicas (Poli Iasi – on loan from Steaua), Andrei Ionescu (Poli Iasi – on loan from Steaua), Alexandru Curtean (FC Timisoara), Paul Parvulescu (Gaz Metan Medias)

Forwards: Alexandru Ionita (Rapid), Bogdan Stancu (Steaua), Alin Litu (Gaz Metan Medias), Marius Alexe (Dinamo).

Poli Iasi lands Steaua’s rising stars

  • Andrei Ionescu (21) moves to Politehnica Iasi, on loan, until the end of the season. The talented attacking midfielder had found little space at Steaua, where he arrived in 2008 with the wonderkid label, but was given little space to prove himself among the seniors, collecting only 16 appearances in the Liga I until now. At Iasi, he’ll work under the guidance of Petre Grigoras and will join former team-mate Mihai Onicas (20), who’s also on loan, until the summer.

Pulhac misses out, Sapunaru returns home

  • Cristian Pulhac (25) moves to Spain, after Dinamo agreed terms with Real Valladolid, in a rather surprising deal, for the following reasons: the secret was extremely well guarded and nothing appeared in the press until now, Pulhac returned this season after a long lay-off and rarely played above average, and the Spanish club should pay 700.000 EUR, although the player had “transfer pass” for 500.000 EUR. I was right to doubt this one! In fact, Pulhac returned this evening to Dinamo’s training camp, as the Spaniards completed another deal in the meantime – the loan of Asier del Horno.
  • Cristian Sapunaru (25) agreed to return on loan to Rapid Bucharest, the club that had sold him to FC Porto, although he was also requested in Greece, by Iraklis Thesalloniki. Sapunaru was facing a long spell on the sidelines and will play for Rapid until the summer.
  • Mihai Onicas (20), one of the players Steaua tried to promote this season, will move to Politehnica Iasi until the summer. The U21 Romanian international had a promising start of season, playing both in the league and in Europe, but faded away and should face a tougher competition for the anchorman position, after Ovidiu Petre’s return from injury.
