Euro 2024 fix fears as fans spot draw will send both teams through and even former star claims it’s ‘arranged’

And former Romania star Danut Lupu, 57, claims that a draw has been “arranged” between his country and Slovakia.

Per AS.Ro, Lupu said: “We will qualify, draw with Slovakia.

“It’s arranged, it would be a shame if we both didn’t go. Why risk it? Would be a shame!

“At that level the players get along very well! Why risk it? Why get in an accident?”

There has been no indication that Lupu’s comments are supported by either country.

Romania can guarantee a spot in the next round if they avoid defeat.

They would be eliminated if they lose and Ukraine win or draw.

Slovakia, meanwhile, would be “almost certain” to go through with a point, according to Opta.


The Slovaks could make absolutely certain with a win but would be knocked out if they lose and Belgium draw with Ukraine.

Romania’s 3-0 win over Ukraine has set them up to reach the knockout stage for the first time since Euro 2000.


Lupu played 14 times for Romania between 1989 and 1998.

One fan posted on X: “Is the Romania v Slovakia draw odds on yet?

“Surely the lads play out an entertaining 2-2 which looks like a lovely coincidence where they both qualify.”

Another added: “If ever there was an argument to not have 3rd place teams qualifying, it’s group E in this tournament.

“You’re in a scenario now where Romania play Slovakia on the final game.

“If they draw, they’ll both qualify no matter what the other result is. Absolutely ripe for a draw.”

Who is Euro 2024’s sexiest star?

EURO 2024 has something for everyone from stunning goals, thrilling matches… and the continent’s biggest hunks, writes Jack Figg.

Several stars have lit up the group stages with their skills on the pitch – but others are also catching the eye for their looks.

But who is the sexiest?

Thankfully AI boffins have carried out an analysis on the facial attractiveness of all players at the tournament.

And it’s bad news for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions who are the fourth UGLIEST in the competition – one place below Scotland.

In fact it’s England’s group rivals Serbia who have fans swooning the most – boasting an average score of 77.90/100 with defender Strahinja Pavlovic deemed their most attractive.

While Turkey defender Mert Muldur has been ranked as the tournament’s BEST-LOOKING player.

But who is England’s sexiest star, and who makes the Euros’ hunkiest XI? Read our full story.
