Romania 2-0 Slovenia: Romania march top

TIMISOARA, Romania, June 6 (Reuters) - Adrian Mutu's header and a Cosmin Contra volley gave Romania a 2-0 win over Slovenia in a Euro 2008 qualifier to go two points clear at the top of Group G on Wednesday.

Romania have 17 points, two more than Bulgaria, who beat

Belarus 2-1, after seven games. The Netherlands, who have a

match in hand, are third on 14 points.

Mutu headed home from a Cristian Chivu right cross five

minutes from the break after Dorin Goian's header had hit the

crossbar in the 30th minute.

Slovenia forward Andrej Komac missed a chance when he had

only keeper Bogdan Lobont to beat early in the second half and

Contra killed of the visitors' last hopes for a draw with a

perfect 25-metre volley after a corner from the left.

Romania were more dominant than in their 2-1 win over the

same opponents in Celje on Saturday and Slovenia's goalkeeper

Samir Handanovic denied the home side at least four more goals

while Ciprian Marica hit his crossbar.

'My guys played this match perfectly to accomplish the task

in hand -- to get all six points against Slovenia,' Romania

coach Victor Piturca said.
