Here's the media take ahead of Romania's Group F trip to Greece ...

Click: "STOP ... AND FROM THE BEGINNING: Romania today begin UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying in Greece, against whom our players lost their nightmare play-off for the Brazilian World Cup."

Gazeta Sporturilor: "Our players tonight play the most important match of UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying. CONQUER ATHENS!" In the attending photo in Gazeta is a reminder of the ancient history of both countries: Romania forward Ciprian Marica, accompanied by a wolf – symbolising Romanian ancestors, the Dacs – faces a Greek footballer wearing the armour of a classical warrior.

The Romanian Football Federation (FRF) have been looking for reasons to be optimistic ahead of the qualifier against Greece tomorrow, pointing out that the national side have never lost any of their five games played on 7 September (three wins and two draws). They also note a strong record when playing on the 7th of any month. Across the 20 matches played on these dates Romania have won 11 and lost only three.
