Romania must meet Spain

Having booked their progress to the UEFA Futsal EURO 2012 quarter-finals on Thursday, Romania discovered tonight that they must switch from Split to Zagreb to play holders Spain.

Croatia's 5-4 win against the Czech Republic tonight has left Romania as UEFA Futsal EURO 2012 Group A runners-up, meaning a quarter-final against Spain in Zagreb at 18.30CET on Monday.

Romania began with a 2-1 loss to the hosts but then beat the Czech Republic 3-1. Croatia's win tonight confirmed Romania in second and they now have a tough task against the reigning champions, who beat Slovenia 4-2 and Ukraine 4-1 at Zagreb Arena, to which the side coached by Spaniard Sito Rivera must now travel from their previous base of Split. Romania have lost all nine of their games against Spain, most recently 7-1 in the 2010 Grand Prix in Brazil, though none have been in UEFA or FIFA competition.
