Romania start with stalemate

Romania made a promising start to Euro 2008, with a 0-0 draw with France in Group C. The game itself was most likely the worst of the tournament so far, with a cagey opening from both teams, the game failed to burst into life and Romania restricted France to half chances, the best of which fell to Nicolas Anelka, who headed over Franck Riberys cross in the first half.

Romania’s best chance came from a Mutu freekick in the second half, he had been felled by Sagnol, but he couldn’t get his kick round the wall. The yellow shirts were well supported in the stands at the Letzigrund Stadion with vocal Romanian fans.
