Romania – Northern Ireland : Preview & Prediction
Cosmin Contra kept his word and resigned due to the fact that he did not qualify our team for the Euro, his place being taken by Mirel Radoi, promoted from the U21 national team. As expected, Radoi will rely on several players who impressed at the final Under 21 tournament in Italy, the key players now being in the senior group. Romania showed its helplessness in the last official match, played in November last year in Spain, the final result being 5-0 in favor of the Iberians.
Northern Ireland I can’t say that he disappointed in the qualifying group for the Euro because in 8 rounds he collected 13 points and thus finished on the 3rd place, after Germany and Holland. He scored 9 goals and scored 13. The most notable result is a 0-0 home game against the Netherlands. Otherwise, he managed to defeat Belarus and Estonia, both at home and away. It is based first and foremost on defense, in fact the coach preferring a team with 3 central defenders, and the main weapon of attack are the fixed phases.
Direct meetings They last met in the qualifications for Euro 2016, Romania managing to win 2-0 at home, and in return it was 0-0. It should be mentioned that both managed to qualify from that group.
