  • GOAL! Romania are level! A clever one-two down the left allows Tanase to get in behind the hosts’ defence. After breaking into the box, the attacker picks his head up and lays the ball into the path of Bicfalvi, who steers his shot into the bottom-left corner and beyond Peacock-Farrell from the centre of the penalty area. 1-1.
