Romania vs. Denmark full match

World Cup Qualification 1989

By M. Apicella2 Comments1743 ViewsDanish

Last match of the Romanian national team under the communist dictatorship in the country. The match was decisive for the qualification to the 1990 Italy World Cup. // A few initial seconds of the 2nd half are missing due to the delay of the national tv broadcasting. The match was uneventful during that period.

    That Romanian side was a very talented one, albeit somewhat inconsistent. You never knew what to expect, in the previous game they were demolished 3-0 by the same Danish squad. I was 13 at the time, I remember skipping school to watch the game, as it was played at about 2 pm on a Wednesday afternoon. Great performance by Sabău, such a shame that his career was not as bright as it should have been, due to injuries...

    Sorry ,Ungureanu played with the number 16,probably the reference is the site "Arquivos dos mundiais";nice site but often misses the correct numbers of the substitutes

    Thank you for pointing it out! We've checked the video to make sure. When in doubt, there's no better source than the video itself, especially for older matches with 1-11 numbers, not custom numbers.
