“Everyone says we have a good group. It’s true, it could be worse, but we will still have difficult matches. Belgium is the main favorite to get out of our group, but I think Ukraine also have a very strong team. I hope we will be able to get good results against both.

The first match against Ukraine is of special importance. Because if you don’t lose, you will have a better chance in the next two group matches. So any point we manage to get in our group is important.

I hope that our national team will get out of the group, but it depends on the guys. I want them to play with great courage, with great concentration on what they have to do, to show unity, and then they will definitely manage to get points. We all hope that Romania will be a pleasant surprise at this European Championship,” Lupescu was quoted by Agerpres.ro as saying.
