However, the side regrouped by the time they returned to action in October last year for the visit of Cymru as a brace from Alexandr Belousov claimed a 2-1 victory in Orhei. The success didn't last though, as a tough trip to Belgium resulted in a 4-1 reverse, with Maxim Cojocaru scoring the consolation for the side in Leuven. The scoreline was repeated in November 2019 during another difficult journey to Wiesbaden to face Germany, where Artiom Carastoian scored the only Moldovan goal with the visitors already four goals down.
The side returned to action in September this year to take on Bosnia and Herzegovina in Chișinău, and despite Amar Beganović putting the visitors ahead early in the second half, Moldova showed their character as Artur Craciun levelled from the penalty spot with just two minutes remaining. Last month, the daunting challenge of taking on Germany in Chișinău once again proved too difficult as the visitors eased themselves to a 5-0 win with Lukas Nmecha scoring twice. However, the side responded in the right way in Tiraspol a few days later, as a goal from Denis Furtună was enough to claim a famous win over Belgium.
