Romania’s national football team was defeated 1-0 (0-0) by Bosnia and Herzegovina on Tuesday, June 6, at the Bilino Polje Stadium in Zenica, in Group 3 of League B UEFA Nations League. It is the second defeat in a row after Montenegro beat Romania 2-0 on Saturday, June 4.
Coach Eduard Iordanescu, who has not won a game in his four matches with the national team (one draw, three defeats), started at Zenica with a reworked formula compared to the match against Montenegro. It was in vain as Romania couldn’t still find its stamina and creativity.
There will be two matches at home for Romania, at the Rapid-Giulesti Stadium in Bucharest, against Finland on June 11 and Montenegro on June 14. It could be a good opportunity for the team to score and gather the necessary points. Otherwise, this competition will be another dead-end for the team.
Romania’s football team’s prestige decreased considerably over the years. Romania has lost important games with challenging or accessible teams and is considered one of the disappointing football teams at the international level, failing to qualify for the world cups for the last 30 years.
The experts don’t expect good results shortly. The problem with the Romanian players is not their talent but their attitude. And, as long as they don’t have the proper mindset, it’s difficult for the team to win, even if they play against teams like Bosnia-Herzegovina or Montenegro, once considered to be easy opponents for Romania.
