After playing against Brazil on Wednesday, the national team will continue its South American tour and will play against Paraguay on Saturday. The team still lacks a head coach, set to be coordinated by Stefan Iovan and Emil Sandoi.
The game is important because a win against Paraguay would place Romania in bowl 3 during the draws for the World Cup 2014 qualifiers, football-rankings.info informs. After the past week’s games the last team in bowl 3 is Hungary with 603 points. If Romania loses it will total 571 points, if it finishes the game in a tie it will total 586 points and if it wins it will total 615 points. Thus, a win against Paraguay would put Romania in bowl 3, football-ranking.info adds.
The draws will take place on July 30, 2011.
The friendly will take place on June 11 at 4 PM (11 PM Romanian time) on Asuncion’s ‘Defensores del Chaco’ stadium.
