WC Qualifiers: Netherlands extend lead as Czechs crash in Romania

3 September 2005 20:51

CONSTANTA/YEREVAN/ANDORRA, Sep 3 (SW) - The Netherlands have extended their lead in Group 1 of the European World Cup Qualifiers, beating Armenia while the Czech Republic were shocked by an inspired Romanian team.

Romania - Czech Republic 2-0

Striker Adrian Mutu was without a doubt the most influential player in Constanta. After netting the opening goal in the 27th minute, he was also responsible for the second in the 58th, beautifully scoring with his heel, to give Romania a 2-0 lead.

The Czechs continued to attack but failed to score back. This defeat means that their difference with the Netherlands increases from one to four points.

Armenia - Netherlands 0-1

In a rather tame match, it took the Dutch until the 63rd minute to break the deadlock through Manchester United's Ruud van Nistelrooy. The striker turned around his defender and struck into the left corner. Armenia attempted to push for an equalizer, but failed to break through the opposing defense.

Andorra - Finland 0-0

Andorra added another point to their account by holding Finland to a scoreless draw in Andorra la Vella, and even leave the last position to surpass Armenia in the group standings.
