(Post-match) Zaniolo: “I’m so happy, I’ll never forget this night for the rest of my life!”


Nicolo Zaniolo to Sky Sport after scoring a brace in Roma 2-1 Porto:

You are the youngest Italian in history to have scored a double in the Champions League.
I’m so happy, I don’t have the words. I’ll never forget tonight for the rest of my life. But now there is the return leg and you can’t just think about yourself, rather – it’s avout the team. We conceded that goal at the end, which is annoying. Now we will work to go Portugal to try and qualify.

Roma were the ones who played today.
We prepared for a match like that, not giving them anything. We’ll have to do the same to qualify.

You ran several miles on that flank.
Today I ran a lot but I’m happy to run for this team.

The Curva Sud was full today.
It’s a unique emotion. I can’t describe it. I hope to do many more under this curva.
