Romania's statements

Mirel Rădoi, Romanian coach, spoke ahead of the match against Iceland: "I don't think there will be any problems with the grass at the Ghencea, especially since it won't rain today or tomorrow, and I have assurances from the people in charge of the turf that it will be very good, as it was in the match against Armenia. At this point, we would have much more to lose than Iceland, and that would be important for us to finish this campaign in second place. We have an advantage, Iceland though on a theoretical level would have a chance for 2nd place, and right now, they can be a dangerous team because they have nothing to lose. That doesn't mean we're not prepared for tomorrow night's game."

"Honestly, I expected there to be spectators in the stands. Many times I have preferred not to talk about these things, about politics in general, or all these measures that are being taken, but I find something incredible, I mean we are vaccinated to go to the Mall, where it is a closed space and we are not welcomed in the stadiums in an open space. I think the best vaccination campaign is for people to come to this game".
