Pantilimon has been ruled out for Romania's Euro 2016 qualifier against Northern Ireland on June 13 because of a knee injury, according to the Newcastle Chronicle.

Pantilimon suffered the injury against Arsenal last month, which then kept him out of the Premier League finale against Arsenal. The injury is not expected to sideline him for long, and he's likely to be fully fit for the start of next season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon got the final game of the season off in the 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

Pantilimon had a fantastic season and simply got a day off in a meaningless game Sunday. He had a fantastic season after being inserted into the starting XI making 109 saves in 28 games while recording 11 clean sheets.

Pantilimon had an easy day at the office Saturday, recording a clean sheet while making no saves in the 0-0 draw to Leicester.

Pantilimon has been fantastic this season, and managed another clean sheet without having to do anything Saturday. It appears Sunderland will survive the season and they can thank Pantilimon as they were in the relegation zone when he was entered in the starting XI and out of it now with two games remaining. Sunderland have a make-up match on Wednesday when they travel to Arsenal in a very tough matchup.

Pantilimon made four saves en route to a clean sheet in the 2-0 victory over Everton Saturday.

Sunderland were thoroughly outplayed, but won where it mattered by outscoring Everton 2-0. Pantilimon is trying to keep Sunderland out of the relegation zone and will be looked at as a hero if he does so with his impressive goalkeeping. Sunderland's next match is a winable one as they host Leicester next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon was asked to make only a single save in the 2-1 win over Southampton Saturday.

This is the third time in four games tat Pantilimon has had to make only one save, so clearly Sunderland have found some form defensively. Aside from this three game stretch, Pantilimon has 94 saves in just 22 games, which would easily make him the leader in saves per match. Sunderland have a match in hand and it appears they'll survive the season after this crucial win Saturday. Sunderland's next match takes place at Goodison Park when they travel to Everton.

Pantilimon was fantastic yet again Saturday making seven saves in a 1-1 draw to Stoke City.

Pantilimon has had 96 saves in just 24 games and would likely be leading the league in saves if he begun the year as the starting goalkeeper. The 6'7" goalie is one of the most talented goalkeepers around and it seems as though big clubs will be after him this summer with his impressive form. Pantilimon's goal right now is to keep Sunderland in the Premier League and he'll look to continue his good form hosting Southampton next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon had a rough game Saturday, making only one save in the 4-1 loss to Crystal Palace Saturday.

With how many shots Sunderland allows, games like this will happen for Pantilimon. Pantilimon has avoided the big blowout losses by making saves, but there was no stopping this Palace outburst today in a crucial relegation battle game. Sunderland have an even tougher matchup next Saturday when they travel to Arsenal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon grabbed a clean sheet making only a single save in the 1-0 win over Newcastle.

This was the least amount of saves Pantilimon has had to make all year and it came in Sunderland's biggest rivalry game. Pantilimon has been fantastic since filling in for Vito Mannone and has garnered attention from bigger clubs with his form. Pantilimon and Sunderland have a good matchup next Saturday when they host Crystal Palace.
