Roma‘s massive Serie A win over Fiorentina is due to a great team effort. But Nainggolan‘s stellar second half dragged the Lupi to the triumph.

There are athletes able to perform well on a weekly basis and super champions that play beyond their limits demonstrating an enviable aptitude. Radja Nainggolan must be included in that second category. The Belgian star is a force of nature. His physical superpower annihilated the opponents and boosted his teammates’ confidence.

Probably, Roberto Martinez’s recent call-ups for the Belgium national team, Nainggolan will be included in the roster for the upcoming two international matches, pushed the midfielder to give his best.

His endurance, tactical wisdom, and competitive nastiness demolished Badelj, Benassi, and Veretout. Roma outperformed Fiorentina in the second half thanks to Nainggolan’s demoniac approach and his indubitable physicality. His temperament pushed his guys to keep the line very tight and high creating that leap in quality between the two teams.
