  • Romania's first game came against Yugoslavia in 1922 and were one of only four European teams to make the 15 day voyage to Uruguay to participate in the first World Cup in 1930. Romania has an excellent record against England, one of only five teams to have a better head-to-head record (The others being Italy, Brazil, Uruguay and Netherlands). The first match between the two occured in 1939 and was the last match England played for 6 and a half years as the Second World War intervened. The first competitive meeting was in the 1970 World Cup in Mexico when England won 1-0 thanks to a Geoff Hurst goal. Since then all but one of the seven encounters have been competitive and none have been won by England.
