    Sârghi (Oţelul) scores an own goal.
    Wayne Rooney's shot from distance takes a wicked deflection off Cristian Sârghi and completely wrong foots Branko Grahovac to make it 2-0 to the English champions. Officially it is an own goal for the unfortunate defender, but take nothing away from the effort he showed in attempting to block the shot rasping shot from Wayne Rooney. Game over though now.

    Neagu (Oţelul) takes the free-kick.
