Romania's papers make gloomy reading after the national team's third successive Group F draw, Greece the latest side to play out a stalemate. "Generation 0-0," sports daily Gazeta Sporturilor brands the national team, adding: "Romania were poor again. We were a step closer to disaster, but Northern Ireland's equaliser [against Hungary] makes our group easier."
Digisport's website adds: "Romania have forgotten how to score. No goals in 340 minutes." Pro Sport concurs: "We need strikers! 0-0 again, and the fans boo at the end of the match." National newspaper Libertatea concludes: "We have not found our way to goal since March and we continue to tremble over qualification."
Romania coach Anghel Iordanescu on the goalless stalemate with Greece:
We really wanted to win - I played an attack-minded formation. In the first half we had three or four chances to score. After the break, despite attacking more we failed to create clear openings. On a positive note, we did not concede a goal. However, we also failed to score. I'm optimistic, there are six more points to win.
