Romanian forward Denis Alibec has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, after GSP claimed that the player was smoking in the changing rooms at half-time whilst Iordanescu sent someone to go and look for the 25-year-old.
When questioned upon the subject, the Romania manager simply replied: “Ask him, not me.”
To play, or not to play?
One dilemma that Iordanescu faces when picking his squad, is whether or not to feature 35-year-old Razvan Rat, who will most likely face Xherdan Shaqiri – which could certainly be seen as a miss-match.
Rat’s form has certainly been a concern, whilst the left-back has recently returned from a shoulder injury, before struggling against the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Kingsley Coman in the opening fixture.
Should Iordanescu drop the Rayo Vallecano defender, then 22-year-old Steliano Filip could start in his place.
It's time to kick on
Following the defeat to France, Iordanescu praised his side’s performance, but stated that it may be difficult to pick heads up after a demoralising defeat, after Payet’s late goal.
Florin Andone, second-top scorer in Spain’s second division, could lead the line again, but Alibec could also make the starting XI despite the smoking rumours.
After Nicolae Stanciu’s fine display for Romania against France, the Steaua Bucharest player is expected to start, whilst experienced Gabriel Torje could be dropped in place of Adrian Popa.
So, how do the two teams fare?
These two national teams have faced each other on 12 occasions, with both Romania and Switzerland winning five games each, and drawing the other two.
Romania won the last meeting – a 1-0 victory in May 2012 – thanks to a goal from Gheorghe Grozav, who failed to make the final 23-man squad this time round.
