Watch Romania – Argentina Live Streaming 05.03.2014
The fixture in Bucharest will be the first friendly of the year for Argentina and the the final game before Alejandro Sabella announces his squad for the World Cup in Brazil. While some decisions are all but certain – the inclusion of Barcelona star Lionel Messi and the likely absence of national side outcast Carlos Tevez among them – Sabella still has choices to make. Despite the potential absence of Lamela and Tevez, Argentina have the likes of Messi, Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain to call on in what will likely prove a fearsome forward line. The game on Wednesdey will be the first between the two teams since the World Cup in 1994, when Romania came out on top in America thanks to goals from Ilie Dumitrescu and Gheorghe Hagi.
While Romania are some way off the quality of the side led by Anghel Iordanescu two decades ago, they remain a difficult proposition, especially on home turf. Victor Piturca’s team have lost just once at home in their last eight games – a 2-0 defeat to Turkey in September – and came close to joining Argentina at this year’s World Cup.
Having finished second in Group D of qualifying, Romania fell to Greece over two legs in the play-offs and have yet to return to action since their dreams of reaching Brazil were ended.
After taking on the world’s third best team, Romania travel to Algeria before seeking revenge in their UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying opener against Greece in September.
