A first in the Romanian soccer

Well, for the first time in history Romanian soccer fans have something to be excited about. Having two teams in the world's most important competition in football (the Champions League) doesn't come easy. Today, Steaua qualified in the group phase by beating Galatasaray Istambul at home 1-0 after drawing in Turkey (2-2). CFR Cluj the champion en-titre are automatically qualified and now both can hope for mercifull groups in the League. Why mercyfull? Well, CFR is in a bad shape now (10th place in the ROM league)while in general Romanian teams fail to actually "bite" the oponents, usually affraid by their fame. Hopefully, things will change to better.
