I wasn't able to watch the game. Varzaru couldn't make it to Drobeta so Vadineanu took her place for the matches against Poland, I hope she will stay on the squad. Lungu, Stanciu (gk) injured and won't play against Poland in the second match either.
I've seen the game but I wasn't very satisfied. Despite the big number of goals scored, most of them were scored from LP and fast breaks. I'm not sure if we scored more than five goals from the 9m line.
Regarding the players, the pluses are, in my opinion: Paula Ungureanu (she was great !), Stanca and Moldovan. On the other side, one of the worst games in NT for Cristina Neagu (two 7m missed, some wrong passes and loss of ideas in attack, slow in defense) - I expected far more from her ! Also, the same bad game for Oana Soit and some easy goals taken by Smedescu (what the hell is she doing at NT ? She looked so terrified ).
Again some strange choices of Voina - by example Geiger was right wing And again some "sleeping time" for our NT, going from +10 to +5 (or +4 - I didn't counted) in less than 10 minutes.
Poland has a young team with some interesting players but except Sadowska and Kinga Polenz, the other names didn't tell me anything. What's happening with Kudlacz ? Is she injured ?
