Dacia reach the finals

Dacia Amateur have won the penultimate place in the UEFA Regions' Cup finals after success in Croatia.

Dacia Amateur have won the penultimate place in the UEFA Regions' Cup finals after success in Croatia.

Three wins
The Romanian side, who qualified for a place in Group 2 as the best runners-up from the two preliminary rounds, strode through to the finals of the competition - which will be held in Malopolska, Poland, in July - with three straight victories in the mini-tournament in Rijeka.

Too hot
Despite having retained just four of the 18-man squad who contested the preliminary round, Dan Firiteanu's side proved far too hot to handle in Croatia, winning 5-3 against Nordwestschweiz Amateur in their opening game, before completing their triumph with an 11-1 win against Liechtenstein Amateur and a 2-1 win against hosts Rijeka Amateur.

Win apiece
No other side won more than one game with each team going home from Croatia with one win apiece. Rijeka won their opening match 6-0 against Liechtenstein, Nordwestschweiz beat Rijeka 2-1 in their second game while Liechtenstein broke their duck in their final game by beating their Swiss neighbours 2-1.
