Donadoni's side play France in their final group game
Italy coach Roberto Donadoni believes his side deserved to beat Romania, even though Gianluigi Buffon had to save a penalty to keep the team in Euro 2008.
World Champions Italy drew 1-1 but would have been out had Buffon not saved Adrian Mutu's late spot-kick.
"I think Italy played better than Romania," said the Azzurri boss.
Luca Toni had a goal wrongly ruled out and Donadoni added: "I don't usually speak about referees. But the refereeing was not of high quality."
Toni's header was disallowed with the score at 0-0 on the stroke of half time and Donadoni felt aggrieved, especially after Ruud van Nistelrooy's goal against his side in the 3-0 loss to the Netherlands.
