John Solano

Roma defender Chris Smalling spoke to Roma TV after scoring in the Giallorossi’s 3-0 win over Brescia.

Your goal opened up a complicated match.
It was the perfect start after the break. Difficult matches await us, but we’ll enter Thursday’s match with confidence.

There was a lot of balance again.
Yes, we are improving and it shows in the pitch. We have a lot of ambition and we must continue to improve.

There was a lot of focus today.
After the international break, winning was important. We also recovered several injured players and we’ll need everyone now.

What are the tactical differences here versus the Premier League?
From a tactical point of view, every manager has his own ideas. The manager asks us to play a high line and I’m improving my understanding with my companions, I feel at ease.
