Roma attacker Stephan El Shaarawy scored a beautiful team goal early on in the first half of last night’s Europa League clash with Real Sociedad. Following the match, El Shaarawy applauded his teammates and underlined the group spirit in the dressing room as key to last night’s success.

“Very important victory because we gave continuity to our previous result and that’s what we needed right now,” El Shaarawy said in his post-match reaction with Roma TV. “We were very solid, attentive and took advantage of the opportunities that came our way. It was a group win.”

“Today I’m also happy for [Kumbulla] for the goal he scored. You can always trust him. He is a guy who trains hard and seriously every day.”

“I am very happy, I am physically well and I have found continuity in terms of playing time. When playing as a fullback there are fewer opportunities, but even those few I try to exploit in the best possible way. It was a good action, a great assist from Tammy, I’m really happy.”
