  • GOAL!!! ROMANIA TAKE THE LEAD!!! A free-kick on the right is worked to the edge of the area, where Stanciu is left unmarked to sweep a low shot at goal. Peacock-Farrell keeps it out at the near post, but can only parry into the path of Chiriches, who squares for Puscas to steer into an empty net from just a few yards out!
