RomaPress – Once again, Roma striker Tammy Abraham played a starring role for the capital club in their 1-0 victory yesterday against Spezia.
The Englishman scored the last-second penalty awarded in the 97th minute awarded by referee Michael Fabbri—securing Roma’s first win in over a month and keeping their hopes of a top four finish alive.
It marked the 19th goal scored by Abraham in all competitions this season for the Giallorossi. He also continued his rise up the Serie A scoring charts as he’s now the fourth leading goalscorer in Italy’s top flight behind Dusan Vlahović , Ciro Immobile, and Giovanni Simeone.
The goal against the Ligurians also extended Abraham’s strong run of form after initially starting slow in his early months with the club.
In his past ten league matches, the 24-year old has tallied 10 goals in Serie A. Quite the contrast when compared to his first ten league fixtures in which he scored only twice.
It’s clear the ex-Chelsea man is growing more and more comfortable with the tactical style of football played throughout Serie A. Furthermore, Abraham’s difference in playing style compared to Edin Dzeko has added a new dimension to Roma’s attack.
The Giallorossi are still trying to find their footing in attack and have scuppered numerous goalscoring chances throughout the campaign. However, Abraham’s performances this season have demonstrated he’s capable of being the cornerstone of the capital club’s attack now and in the future.
