Tottenham Hotspur fans the chance to watch former defender Vlad Chiriches in action as he lined up for Romania against France.

The centre-back captained his country in the Euro 2016 opener, a narrow 2-1 defeat against hosts France.

Chiriches, sold to Napoli last summer after two seasons at White Hart Lane, was a panicky figure during his time in North London, but looked a lot more assured in international colours.

He went up against old foe Olivier Giroud of Arsenal during the game and asserted himself well, even if the Frenchman headed in the first goal midway through the second half, while Chiriches nor any of his Romania teammates could do anything about Dimitri Payet's wonderful winner.

Chiriches was booked early in the first half, but largely acquitted himself well, making five interceptions.

He also made three tackles and five clearances, rated by whoscored.com as Romania's best player statistically.
