Finally...we did it

Romania manages finally not to screw up a qualifying campaign to a major soccer tournament (that being either the World Cup or the European Championship). After two such events missed by the national team, today they managed to secure (almost) a seat for the Euro2008 in Austria and Swizerland by beating Netherlands in Constanta (1-0, goal by Goian). An awful weather, a though fought game and a lucky win taking into account the Dutch chances. But, again, who cares?? They are the pragmatic ones usually (score the winner with Albania in min 90+3) so it is a good change to see the roles inverted sometimes. Nice game & congrats! Maybe we can do it like Greece:)))(pics from
