Romania women's national football team

The Romania women's national football team represents Romania in international women's football. Their most recent competition is qualification for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. Despite not gaining as much success as the men's, the women's team has been improving greatly, and almost qualified for UEFA Women's Euro and FIFA Women's World Cup. The rise of women's team is the chance for Romania to become the first Balkan nation to play on an international competitions, and become the first nation to have both men and women's teams participating in both tournaments. The only rival for them in the Balkans, is Serbia, as Serbian women's team had almost qualified for a major tournament recently.[citation needed][vague]
