Di Francesco: “Great Determination to Dominate Our Opponents”

Eusebio Di Francesco - AS Roma

The Italian coach and Alessandro Florenzi held a press conference ahead of the big Champions League clash Roma-Shakhtar Donetsk.

Roma will face Shakhtar on Tuesday at the Stadio Olimpico. Eusebio Di Francesco is confident in a great performance of his group.

Dzeko and the group are fine. We all have an objective, the qualification to the quarterfinals. We can get there working together and knowing that we have a striker able to score extraordinary goals. He can also put his teammates in the condition to score. He is going to be a determinant factor but the team is important as well,” said Di Francesco.

“Many times we lacked continuity. This is what I have said several times. We cannot make mistakes in this match. If we’ll be able to play well for 75 minutes we would bring home an important result. We are going to face a strong team but we want to pass to the next round. We cannot only play well for 45 minutes,” continued the Italian coach.

Di Francesco also confirmed that “the main goal of my team is to dominate the match with a great determination albeit we face a very qualitative side. In the first leg match, we have demonstrated our qualities too. It’s a great chance for me and for the whole team. But I do not think much of myself, I always talk about the team as a single entity.”
