The 19-year-old midfielder scored his first goal for the main team in the Europa League, against Sheriff Tiraspol.
Nicolo Beselli had a beautiful moment with Jose Mourinho in the final minutes of the match between Roma and Sharif Tiraspol. Introduced by the Portuguese coach in the last 20 minutes of the sixth and final round of the Europa League group stage, the 19-year-old midfielder ended up scoring on his debut for Roma’s main team. During the celebrations with the coach, the midfielder was unable to hold back his tears…which was leading Mourinho down the same path, as he himself admitted in his statements at the end of today’s match.
“Yes, they influenced me too. I had previously mentioned to our club media that several players had already made their debuts in other teams, but with the exception of João Costa (the Portuguese international goalkeeper for the Portugal U-19 national team), all the other kids “were born They grew up here, came to the stadium with their father and grandfather and lived it all with great affection. When they get the opportunity to play for the first team, it’s incredible for them. For Beselli, this was not the first time [a jogar no estádio da AS Roma]But it was the first goal, at the Olimpico, in the first team, in the European League and in the magical goal where they dreamed, when they were children, of scoring goals. It’s a joy to see a baby cry. “I had to run away so I wouldn’t cry too,” he said.
