Gheorghe Popescu




Despite his age, Gheorghe Popescu remains a formidable force in the Romanian rearguard.

What he has lost in pace he makes up for in skill and his sweeper role is vital to the Romanian counter-attacking style of play.

The former Spurs star, who made his international debut back in 1988 against Albania, is blessed with a wonderful technique but many believe that the Romanians rely too much on the side which did so well in USA 94.

His continued inclusion in the side prevents the injection of some fresh faces which many believe is vital if they want to become a force in the future.

But Popescu has scored 15 goals for Romania, is on the verge of 100 caps and his experience could prove vital if his side are to advance beyond the group stages.
