Romanian Hopes Let Down

Holland 2 – 0 Romania

Everyone was nearly looking at the shocking possibility of the World Cup finalists being eliminated by Romania’s two draws against them but mighty Holland kept them at bay. Second half goals from Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Robin Van Persie put the result beyond doubt and there was no hope left for Romania to qualify with Italy winning 2-0 against France. Romania’s adventure ended yesterday in the Euros finishing third in Group C ahead of France with 2 points.
