Romania – Ukraine 3-0.  An excellent debut for the tricolors

Romania’s national football staff started the last participants in the European Championship organized by Germany on Monday with an excellent result, 3-0 against Ukraine. Edward Iordănescu and his students gave their opponents a prize of many hundreds of thousands of euros and marked the second success of the tricolors in six European participations. It is 24 years since the final, and only victory to date, was in the European Championship final 3-2 against England.

The goals of this incredible success were scored by Nicolae Stanciu (twenty-ninth minute), who immediately shot into the online shot blocked by Andriy Lunin, Răzvan Marin (53rd minute) and Denis Drăguș (57th minute). The press conference from the top of the sport in the Allianz Arena, that he felt very unhappy when the national anthem was performed and that the national staff will not like this victory and that they may be very effective in the coming days for the match in Belgium.

“I think we’ll probably be just like what we’ve been so far. We knew what to expect and that we had to increase our degree. We are not going to celebrate after this victory and we will only take the sport into account, unlike Belgium. I believe it was a new expertise for all of us, personally I have never felt anything like it in my life. Let 50-60,000 Romanians sing here in the Allianz Arena during the national anthem. It’s a new time for all of us. I saw my father, my husband, my young brother, my sister and I shedding tears. My companion was too, I believe.

I noticed how many Romanians there are in Munich and various German cities. We would like to thank them and hope that we have made them happy today. I hope they will have a good time in the right way,” Stanciu said. “It’s definitely the purpose of the job. This national staff shirt means everything to me. You can’t ask for anything in life to achieve the last and win in the best way I did. Andrei (not Andrei Rațiu) is my brother and I like him. This is our strength: we are like brothers, both inside and outside the sphere,” said the Romanian captain.

Selector Edi Iordănescu: “This is the technology of the soul!”

“We have a second to be happy, it is historically past time to win in the Romanian world. I thank them! I don’t know if I can thank the viewers one way or another, it was heat, pressure. Thanks everyone! But let’s congratulate the boys! They outdid themselves. I thank Stanciu for participating in the sport. I hope to meet him more often and he will greet me again! Our star is the staff, thanks to those who came in and gave it their all! Let’s have fun with it in the current time, there will probably be an evaluation, there may have been some very unfavorable problems. But nowadays we are not happy with that, they are pure issues. We must continue with our resources,” said Edi Iordănescu.
