Roma Youngster Hails First Career Goal, Sets Objectives

With the help of a favorable bounce, Nicola Zalewski recorded his first-ever goal against Sassuolo, although it wasn’t enough for his side to come away with points. The wingback commented on it during an event organized by the fans (via Fantacalcio).

“Let’s just say the goal was a little lucky, but unfortunately I was unable to help the team with it. The match was ill-fated, as some episodes went against us. We are pursuing important objectives this season. The first one will come Thursday, as we’ll try to advance in Europa League, and then we’ll think about the Derby. Qualifying for the Champions League is surely our goal.”

Zalewski mused on the weight of playing for his boyhood club.

“It’s surely a huge responsibility, but that goes for the whole squad, and not just for those born in Rome that grew up supporting the Giallorossi. We try to fight for the magnificent people that fill the stadium every week and gifts us their affection despite our ups and downs.”

Stephan El Shaarawy attended the happening along with Zalewski and urged the team to bounce back.

“It’s tough to smile today because we were very disappointed and regretful for the result against Sassuolo. However, we have two pivotal games coming up. We must prove that we can compete for lofty objectives the rest of the way. We need to react like we did after the loss against Cremonese.”

“I received a very warm welcome when I joined in 2016. It has always been an honor to wear this jersey. The arena was sold out for the 27th match in a row Sunday, which goes to show the passion and love for this side.”
