Quarter-finalists two years ago, Romania have one foot in the knockout stage courtesy of an opening-night victory against UEFA Futsal EURO 2014 hosts Belgium.
Romania were beaten by the home team in their first match at Croatia 2012, but history seldom seemed likely to repeat itself in Antwerp. Florin Matei scored one and set up three more as Nelu Stancea's men started with an emphatic Group A win, sealed by Saad Salhi's own goal.
