AS Roma forward Stephan El Shaarawy commended their team character and confidence after the 3-0 triumph over Shakhtar Donetsk; however, cautions teammates their job is not finished.
Lorenzo Pellegrini, El Shaarawy, and Gianluca Mancini found the net in the first leg of theEuropa League
Round of 16 tie against the Miners.
“We proved our character and determination in a game that was very tough, which we knew because our coach also worked with them and told us what to expect,” El Shaarawy told Sky Sport Italia.
“We put in a good performance, having a result like this in the first half certainly boosts our confidence. It’ll be a tough game in Ukraine too and it's not over yet.
“I wanted this return to Roma, but I was ready to wait for my moment and now I am very happy.”
This game was played at the Stadio Olimpico, where Italy will open their
competition against Turkey this mid-year, and three Italian players scored in the game.
“Of course, playing for the Nazionale and winning a trophy is the aim of every professional. We want to keep preparing and be ready when the tournament comes.”
