Roma leave Cagliari with three points thanks to Kalinic’s convincing performance. The Croatian replaced Dzeko and supported his teammates efficiently.
His time may have come and the Croatian striker has proven his skills today. Nikola Kalinic played a convincing game on the beautiful Italian island and scored a brace in the first 45 minutes.
Paulo Fonseca decided to play him since the beginning of the match also to give Dzeko the necessary rest, and the 32-year-old from Solin (Croatia) clearly took advantage of the opportunity.
“We all had great performance…These are three very important points,” Kalinic said to Sky.
Everything is easier for a striker when Roma can develop their offensive plays. “We created many goalscoring opportunities, that’s why I scored twice, I’m pleased. I want to keep going like this but the three points are the most important thing,” Nikola Kalinic said to Roma TV after Cagliari-Roma.
