Zaniolo after bagging Italy brace: “Tonight I accomplished another dream. I must keep improving”.


It was an unforgettable evening for Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo. The youngster scored twice and bagged an assist in Gli Azzurri’s 9-1 demolition of Armenia in their Euro 2020 qualifying match. Following the final whistle, the Giallorossi’s jewel spoke to Rai Sport after he grabbed his first goals for the Italian national team.

It’s a special moment for you.
I am very happy, I accomplished another dream this evening but I must treat this as a point to bios off, not a point of arrival. I must continue to improve everyday. I am very happy for the win.

After the criticisms of Capello, your level has risen.
Criticisms are a part of the game. It came during a period in which I wasn’t performing well. The pitch always does the talking and is the best way to respond.

Is Fonseca right: your role is that of winger?
I feel good both on the wing and as a mezz’ala, I have no preferences. I always give my best wherever the manager puts me.
