Group G

15th June: vs. Colombia (1:0) in Lyon.

22nd June: vs. England (2:1) in Toulouse.

26th June: vs. Tunisia (1:1) in Saint-Denis.

While some teams might celebrate a victory by painting the town red, Romania chose to paint their heads yellow after beating England. It's one thing for the fans to make such statements, quite another for the team to look like a bunch of clowns.

Romanian football died that night as they struggled to draw with Tunisia in their next match.

Knockout Stage

2nd Round
30th June: vs. Croatia (0:1) in Bordeaux.

Romania then looked lethargic against Croatia in the Second Round.
