Romania’s national team manager Mirel Radoi used big words after the four – goal loss to Norway in the Nations League. He apologized to the entire nation.
NORWAY – ROMANIA 4–0
– We were humiliated, and that applies not only to us, but to you. The whole nation was humiliated. I’m ashamed. I have to be careful what I say, but right now I think we have to limit the defeat in Wednesday’s match against Austria, he said according to the newspaper Gazeta Sporturilor.
– I do not understand how a team that played 120 minutes on Thursday and changed only four men can be so much fresher and stronger than our team that played 90 minutes and changed seven men.
He said that Romania looked like a junior team in the meeting with the Norwegians.
– I saw no attitude, no reaction. It was not just an ugly loss, it was a humiliation.
Romania led the group after the matches in September, when, among other things, they lost to Austria. On Wednesday, the Austrians arrive in Ploiesti.
– Right now I think we have to play to limit the defeat. We must not re-experience what happened tonight. Maybe I have other thoughts when I wake up tomorrow, but that’s exactly my attitude, Radoi said.
