The Răzvan Lucescu-era began in style as the young manager lead Romania to a 1-0 victory over Lithuania. The result pulls the “tricolori” level with Austria, two points behind the Lithuanians in third.
From the start Romania went on the attack as Tiberiu Ghioane of Ukraine champions Dynamo Kyiv narrowly missed connecting with Ciprian Marica only three minutes in. The VfB Stuttgart striker, Marica, was a whirlwind of activity and after a number of failed efforts he found the mark with six minutes remaining as he sent the ball in from twenty metres. The Lithuanian side continued to have difficulty marking Ciprian Marica but with Romania displaying textbook defending, their was no breaking through and the match concluded without further mark.
After considerable thought this will serve as my final post. If you care to apply for this blog please contact Daryl with The Offside (click here) after reviewing the guidelines at www.theoffside.com/bloggers.

The video is well over a month old, but the world can be forgiven for overlooking the Finnish third division, right? Right.

The spate of solid World Cup commercials has begun. Next up is Paolo Rossi's spot for VISA, taking him back to Brazil to remind them of the terror he unleashed in 1982 with a hat trick in Spain. Presumably the next one is a very resigned Roberto Baggio taking heat ...
Adidas launched the official ball for the 2014 World Cup, called the brazuca. Which sounds vaguely like something Kramer and Frank Costanza would've whipped up. They had models and dubstep but not a soul who thought to change the name to something which sounds less like a brassiere for the ...
There has to be someone out there knowing the market for this. Given that it's the global game and not everyone has a global understanding of languages, hacked pronunciations are the norm. Someone should take a cue from Cesar Azpilicueta and get all footballers to pronounce their own names on ...
