Romania - Record International Players

  • Appearances for Romania National Team
  • Goalscoring for Romania National Team

  • Note that in 2007 the Romanian FA removed 31 Olympic matches (as requested by FIFA in 1999) as well as two matches against substandard opponents (Hungary B on 11 Jan 1980 and Ecuador U-23 on 22 Jan 1984).
    This has been taken into account in the lists below.
    See the file on Romania's international matches for an overview of the deletions and a discussion on the (doubtful) merits of this purge.

    Players for both Hungary and Romania
