Paulo Dybala discussed the feeling after scoring the vital goal over Feyenoord which propelled Roma in their Europa League journey.

“It was an incredible moment,” Dybala said in his interview with UEFA.

“After their goal I was a little scared because it was really close and in situations like this it’s sometimes difficult, the tension rises a lot but I think we all did very well. The action started with Nemanja, then Stephan was patient and didn’t cross right away even though there were many of us in the area. Then Lore (Pellegrini, ed) saw me and hit me with a first touch because there wasn’t much space.”

“I think that goal gave us a lot of energy in the last minutes to be able to turn the game around. On a technical level it was a very nice goal. I had to do that kind of turn because I had the defender on me and it was the only way to turn around and kick.”

“Luckily the ball stayed there and I was able to score. I should have gone and got the ball into the net to try and win, but after a goal like that and the roar of the crowd, we all understood that it could be an important moment to move forward. In extra time the team was united and strong and that made the difference.”
