England vs Romania: Predictions
With just over a week until England launch their Euro 2020 campaign against Croatia at Wembley, Gareth Southgate’s side will be eager to build some momentum in their final warm-up game.
Semi-finalists at the 2018 World Cup, the Three Lions are among the favourites for the Euros, but were given a few scares towards the end of Wednesday’s narrow 1-0 win over Austria.
Nevertheless, having not lost an international friendly on home soil since a 2-1 defeat by the Netherlands in March 2016, they will be confident of getting the job done against a Romania side that have lost their last three games.
After failing to qualify for the Euros, the attentions of Mirel Radoi’s side have already turned to September, when they resume their World Cup qualifying campaign with what could prove to be a crucial triple-header in Group J against Iceland, Liechtenstein and North Macedonia.
England vs Romania: Match Stats
England arrive in this contest on a five-match winning run, while the Three Lions have scored in both halves of each of the last 10 games when they have found the net more than once.
Though struggling for form of late, the 2-1 defeat by Georgia in midweek ended a run of five consecutive friendly wins for Romania, who have only failed to score in just one of their last seven outings.
England vs Romania: Squawka Says
Scoreline prediction: England 2-1 Romania
England vs Romania: Odds
England vs Romania: Head to Head
20 June 2000 – England 2-3 Romania – European Championship
22 June 1998 – Romania 2-1 England – World Cup
12 October 1994 – England 1-1 Romania – Friendly
10 September 1985 – England 1-1 Romania – World Cup Qualifier
30 April 1985 – Romania 0-0 England – World Cup Qualifier
Romania have proved something of a bogey side for England; infamously eliminating them from Euro 2000 and you must go back to the 1970 World Cup finals for the Three Lions’ last victory in the fixture.
Although this is the first meeting between the nations in almost 21 years and with the array of talent at Southgate’s disposal, it is hard to look past the hosts ending that drought here.
