Anghel lordanescu says if he had the choice, there was not a chance of him picking Les Blues out of all the teams for Romania’s opening encounter, but, now that such has been the programme, he would want to have a positive perspective and see it as an opportunity for Romania to shine in a match which would be viewed in each and every corner of the world.
Iordanescu is drawing the heart from the fact that his team had a goalless draw versus Spain recently and Spain’s playing style resembles to that of France in the sense that they also believe in possession play.
