Experienced defenders Vyacheslav Posmac from Boluspor, Oleg Ryabchuk from Spartak Moscow and midfielder Vadim Rata from Voluntari are not included in the selection of coach Serghei Clesenko.
Seven players of the current selection are active in the Moldovan league, four of them in Petrocub Hincesti. Romania supplied the most legionnaires, where six footballers play. Goalkeeper Nicolae Cebotari and defender Dinis Ieseanu are waiting for their first start for the national team.
Moldova are fourth in the Group E table with nine points, but two wins will secure their first place at the big event, regardless of other results. The opening match with the Czech team in Chisinau ended in a goalless draw in March.
