The “Mask Assassin”. Words by Chris Smalling. On Edin Dzeko, of course. The mask came off as the Bosniac headed the goal for Roma to take the lead. Edin is our leader. He’s just a remarkable champion and he showed that once again last night.
Chris Smalling. Another colossal performance. He brings safety and security at the back. Nearly scored from another header. So close. Unlucky.
Nicolò Zaniolo. 19 years old. 19 goals with Roma at the Olimpico. Already played and scored some cracking goals in the Champions League against top teams. Last night he showed he’s above everybody else. The future of italian football. Who needs advice here?
Javier Pastore. He’s played a very good match, closed to scoring a couple of times, nice passing and good fighting spirit. But we won’t get excited. But at least he’s trying to show he’s not finished yet. And Fonseca still believes. So, Flaco, let’s do it again!
Other good notes: Mancini in midfield and Cetin’s debut. To review: Veretout needs to step up to show more confidence. Florenzi needs more resting, Kolarov is next, Spinazzola must sharpen up.
So, a very good performance by Roma, a much needed win to reach 5th position, only 1 point behind Napoli, 7 from the top. If only… Nevermind looking back. Let’s look forward now. Udinese on Wednesday midweek fixture, then Napoli the weekend, then Borussia next week in Germany. The truth is out there! Forza Roma!
