Di Francesco: “We could have taken all three points.”


Live – RomaPress.us (Stamford Bridge): Eusebio Di Francesco after Chelsea 3-3 Roma:

Happy for the score line or more regrets?
Both, we could have easily secured the three points but remember we were two goals down due to mistakes, we have to grow in our awareness.

Should you work more on individual mistakes? The squad has great potential.
I’m glad you stressed this because football is won by those who make the fewer mistake, however, the players that made those mistakes bounced back during the match, we improved our character today and we are definitely on the right track.

It was a very good collective performance but lets single out Dzeko, what did you think of the first goal?
Well I think we know he scores lots of goals but I am especially happy about his performance and his approach. By doing this, we had many chances, Courtois made a good save, overall I am very happy.

How did you stop the counter attack?
Well sometimes we did well, other times we made mistakes but when you want to control the match and move the ball, you have to take risks, this is my mentality.

At some points, it looked like Roma were at home.
It’s great to play in England, in English grounds, great atmosphere, we were really excited both me and players to play in this kind of match.
