Update U Cluj Dinamo Romania Cup:
Dinamo was one step away from a shameful elimination from the Romanian Cup. DIRECTLY at Digi Sport, the white-reds needed penalty kicks to pass U Cluj, a team that evolves in the third league.
The Transylvanians started the game incredibly. Goga scored a penalty in the third minute, but captain Gabi Giurgiu missed 11 meters. “I happened to see a U Cluj penalty and I saw that the ball went right, so I went there,” explained the guest goalkeeper.
Miriuţă’s players scored on the first occasion. Corbu scored from the left hand side of the goal for Steliano Filip. Joy was short-lived. Dorin Goga equalized and the match went into overtime, although George Florescu was close to signing the goal of the season on the final.
In the two 15-minute rounds he did not score, so the penalty kicks were scored. “The Red Caps” hit the bar once and sent over two penalties, enough for Dinamo to go to the quarterfinals of the Romanian Cup.
Dinamo qualified in the third quarter of the competition for the third consecutive edition.
