According to the webpage of the Romanian Football Federation, Mirel Radoi, the selector of Romania's national football side has summoned a lineup of 24 players for the matches counting towards the preliminaries of World Cup 2022 due in March. 16 out of these footballers are coming from foreign clubs while 8 are playing for teams in the Romanian football championship.

FCSB has given most of the players to the national eleven, three. CFR Cluj, Universitatea Craiova and Italian side Parma each have two. Worth noting is coach Radoi's decision to summon some young players such as FCSB's Ovidiu Popescu, Ionut Radu from Inter Milan and Valentin Mihaila of Parma.   

Romania's national eleven in March will play three matches counting towards the World Cup qualifiers. They will take on North Macedonia in Bucharest on March 25 then, three days later will be up against Germany. On March 31 our footballers will be playing Armenia in an away game. 

Gheorghe Multescu has become the headcoach of Dinamo Bucharest replacing Ionel Gane who stepped down after Dinamo's 1-2 defeat on Monday against FC Arges. Dinamo's first game with Multescu at the helm is the one against Poli Iasi, in the 28 leg of the Romanian football championship on Saturday. Dinamo is currently ranking 14 in the standings, on the last but one position.
