Opening Pool C game, Romania team for France

In three competitive football matches, Romania have never managed to beat France, but they are looking to change that in today’s first Pool C game in the Group of Death at Euro 2008. In the last ten meetings of the side, Romania have won three, with one draw and the French winning the other six.

The only other European Championships finals match between the two was in England in 1966, when a Christophe Dugarry goal was enough for France to win 1-0.

The Romanian team for today’s game is:

Bogdan Lonut Lobont (GK)
Cosmin Marius Contra
Dorin Goian
Razvan Rat
Gabriel Tamas
Mirel Matei Radoi
Cristian Chivu (C)
Razvan Cocis
Adrian Mutu
Daniel Niculae
Banel Nicolita

Romania look set to line up in a 4-3-3 formation for kick-off
