The Romanian footballers met Bulgaria in a friendly in Bucharest on Tuesday. The match ended in a goaless draw and the Romanians managed a better first half with a series of interesting combinations, which sadly they were unable to capitalize on.

In the second half of the game, the visitors put on a couple of bold attacks and tested the abilities of the Romanian goalie who managed to promptly intervene several times during the game.

Romania even benefitted a penalty shot half into the game after a challenge on skipper Stanciu. Dennis Man tried to fire home but his shot was saved by the Bulgarian goalkeeper.

The match ended nil-all and Romania hasn’t defeated Bulgaria for the past 35 years. Their last victory was in May 1989, when Romania managed a one-nil win in Bucharest which counted towards the 190 World Cup qualifiers.

On Friday, the team coached by Edward Iordănescu will be having the last friendly before the aforementioned prestigious tournament. They will be playing in Bucharest the selection of Lichtenstein, which can prove to be a redoubtable opponent, allowing our side to hone their attack and defence skills.

In Germany, Romania will be playing in Group E together with Ukraine, Belgium and Slovakia. Their first match at EURO 2024 will be on June 17 in Munich against Ukraine. Ukraine ended in a goaless draw their latest training match, against Germany in Nuremberg on Monday. Our footballers will be up against Belgium in Cologne on June 22 and take on Slovakia in Frankfurt four days later.
