This is the seventh World Cup finals for Romania.

Looking at it mathematically, France 98 could mean a place in the semi-finals for Romania.

Match Reports.

Group Tables.


While some teams might celebrate a victory by painting the town red, Romania chose to paint their heads yellow after beating England.

It's one thing for the fans to make such statements, quite another for the team to look like a bunch of clowns.

Romanian football died that night as they struggled to draw with Tunisia in their next match, and then looked lethargic against Croatia in the second round.
