FC Timisoara awarded three points by LPF

FC Timisoara is the new leader of the Romanian first league after a decision made today (Weds) by the Discipline Commission of the Professional Football League (LPF).

LPF decided to accept Timisoara's contention that Rapid Bucharest had unfairly used two players in a match it won by a score of 1-0 against Timisoara, according to Gazeta Sporturilor.

Rapid Bucharest used Dacian Varga and Tibi Balan when they were not club players.

LPF decided today that the match had been won by FC Timisoara by a score of 3-0 as Rapid had broken the rules and deserved to forfeit it.

Timisoara leads the first league with 38 points on goal difference, followed by previous leader CFR Cluj, with 38 points, and Unirea Urziceni, with 36 points.

Coach says Romania will qualify for Euro 2012

Romania is going to qualify for Euro 2012, national football team coach Razvan Lucescu said today (Tues).

Lucescu said it wasn't a tragedy that Romania had lost the friendly match with Israel, as nine players had not been available and he had been forced to call up new players.

Romania lost to Israel by a score of 2-0 (1-0) yesterday (Mon) evening in a friendly at Dan Paltinisanu stadium in Timisoara.

Romania, France, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Belarus, Albania and Luxembourg will play in Group D in qualifying competition for Euro 2012.

Lucescu was appointed coach of the national team in April last year. Romania failed to qualify for World Cup 2010.
I agree with him, even though I believe he is a horrible manager. Please comment below to tell us what you think about this.
