Inevitably on 15 minutes Romania took the lead with Liviu Florin Pop scoring from a great individual effort. 5 minutes later Sergiu Pitaru lobbed Henderson from outside the box to double the score and make it 2-0 to the visitors. Clapton had a couple of half chances before the half was up, but it was Romania who added to their lead when Ungereanu tapped on in.
Unfortunately, things didn't get better for The Tons in the second half and Vasile scored on 55 minutes to make it 4-0. They stifled Clapton for the rest of the half, so despite it being a great daily out the match ended in disappointment.
