Romania remain in training following their 2-0 win against Northern Ireland, with a friendly game against Denmark coming up on Tuesday. Thus, the players have had to vote in the nation's presidential elections at a specially arranged polling station in the local school in Mogosoaia, a few hundred metres from the national training centre. Here is Răzvan Raţ doing his bit for democracy!
Romania had to bide their time in their 2-0 win against Northern Ireland, but Paul Papp and Răzvan Raț said they never doubted the goals would come – even if it was a surprise that defender Papp provided them.
Romania coach Anghel Iordănescu added: "I am glad for Paul Papp. I asked him to play more offensively than usual but I did not expect him to score. He did so twice and helped us to win this game.
Opposite number Michael O'Neill was full of praise for Northern Ireland's opponents: "Romania are a very strong team, we knew it would be the most difficult game of the group so I said to my players not to be too disappointed."
