FC Zimbru Chisinau striker Viorel Frunza has earned his first call-up by Moldova before the friendly match against Hungary in Budapest in Wednesday.
The 22-year-old Frunza, who has been in top form for Zimbru in Divizia Nationala, is the only uncapped player in a squad which is missing several key figures this time around.
Saturn pair missing
Moldova coach Viktor Pasulko will be without several key players, as FC Saturn Moskovskaya Oblast defender Radu Rebeja is missing for family reasons and club-mate Adrian Sosnovschi has ben dropped after being sent off in a UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifier against the Czech Republic.
Another missing is FC Hapoel Tel-Aviv striker Serghey Clescenco who, like several others, has an injury. "We have a problem with player injuries, but we are hoping to build on the progress this side has shown in the recent games", Pasulko said.
