European Under 17 Championship: Czech Rep 1-1 Romania

Romania were making their first ever appearance in the final tournament of this event

Romania’s first ever appearance in a final tournament at this level finished off positively as they shared the points.

Germany and Holland are the favourites in Group B and therefore this game gave both sides an opportunity to boost their confidence before facing the two powerhouses.

Much like the Germany and Holland encounter, the first-half was goalless and it was only just after half-time that the deadlock was broken.

Fabian Himcinschi beat two Czech defenders before slotting the ball home to give Romania the lead on 52 minutes.

Romania looked to be holding on to their lead and provide a momentous victory for their fans until the Czech contingent struck only three minutes from time.

Nikolas Salasovic fired a superb 30-yard effort into the Romanian net to give his side a point and hopefully set them up nicely for a giant-killing against Germany or the Netherlands in their remaining group games.
