It was a perfect evening for Roma and striker Tammy Abraham, who led the Giallorossi to a 3-0 demolition over rivals Lazio in the Derby della Capitale.
It took the Englishman less than a minute into the game to hand Jose Mourinho’s men the lead—scoring after just 52 seconds.
“I’ve got no words, wow. You can see what this match means for the supporters and for my teammates and I,” Abraham told DAZN.
“I’ve heard so much talk about this game over the past few weeks so being here tonight and contributing two goals to this win…I couldn’t have asked for more.”
He continued, “I’m very settled here in Rome thanks to my teammates, the supporters, and the manager. Everyone made me feel at home from the first moment I got here.”
“When everyone is united and believes in what you are doing, these sorts of results happen. I’m here to help the team as much as possible, Roma have invested a lot in me and I want to repay them.”
Finally, “I’m just disappointed I missed my third goal in the second half! I could’ve had a hat trick. Anyway, I can’t complain, we won and I scored twice: we won in our stadium, in our home, in our Rome.”
