Like William Wallace, the Scottish warrior, Edin Dzeko is the Roma hero of the night, scoring the winner that sends Roma to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Edin like his teammates fought like a brave on the pitch, showing the right attitude from the start, all went on to believe Roma could not miss this massive opportunity.
It was a tough match, as expected. Shakhtar are a good team, but despite having longer ball possession they never threatened our keeper. But yes, we all dreaded the last five minutes; Roma had to resist until the very dying seconds before celebrating with the fans. It was frantic.
So, happy days in the end, against all odds Roma are in the last eight, first time since 2008. A massive achievement. Zero goals conceded at the Stadio Olimpico during the whole campaign. Most credit goes to Alisson Becker, but also to Di Francesco and all his men last night, including Bruno Peres with that last gasp save in Karkhiv.
Get this. Our Champions League does not finish here, this is not over yet, whatever happens in next round. We must believe we are going to the semis, no matter what comes along at the draw on Friday. We are going to Kiev! And if we aren’t then be it. But first, Crotone on Sunday. Believe! Daje Roma!
