And the game ended hugging all his playersexultant and excitedletting go of all the tension and nerves that he exhibited throughout the match, a duel where he suffered unspeakably due to the tightness of the scoreboard and because Feyenoord pressed until the end, selling dearly the defeat against an Italian eleven who asserted their status as favorites .

For Roma it was also a historic day as it had been 31 years since they played in a final. The last one, the UEFA Cup, the ‘giallorossi’ played and lost to Inter in 1991.
