Romania v Finland to be played behind closed doors

Romania v Finland to be played behind closed doorsRomania national team have been ordered to play their next Euro 2016 qualifier vs Finland behind closed doors, the national football federation (FRF) has revealed.

The national football team was punished for the violent behaviour of their fans in September matches against Hungary and Greece, with both of these matches ending all squared.

The FRF will have to pay a total of 110,000 euros on account of two fines, but facing Finland in front of empty stands in a crucial Euro 2016 qualifier is likely to be a bigger problem.

With two games to go, Romania sit one point behind group leaders Northern Ireland and three points in front of third-placed Hungary.

Tricolorii will probably secure automatic qualification if they manage to defeat Finland on 8 October, with home win paying 1.68 (5/8).

Even if they fail to win, Romania will have a chance to make things right when they take on Faroe Islands on the road three days later, while their rivals for the second position Hungary host Faroe Islands before playing Greece away.
