Roma Coach following Champions League elimination: We've let our country down

Roma Coach Eusebio Di Francesco was left a visibly disappointed man following his team's elimination against Liverpool after the second leg UEFA Champions League semifinal clash at the Stadio Olimpico despite winning convincingly by four goals to two. The Italians gave it their all in the second leg game despite falling behind 1-0 in the ninth minute to a Sadio Mane goal. An own goal from James Milner in the fifth minute leveled the scores for the Serie A side before Wijnaldum restored the visitors' lead.

However, even though Edin Dzeko scored early in the second half and Nainggolan added two late goals including an injury time penalty, the Italians were left to rue the five goals they conceded in the first leg as Liverpool held on for a 7-6 aggregate win even though they lost the tie 4-2.

Speaking to reporters following the match, a visibly disappointed Roma Coach, Eusebio Di Francesco had this to say:

"Well, this game was tough for us. What a cruel way to be eliminated. All we needed was one more goal to take it to extra time and I know for a fact that we would have gotten the win from there. Liverpool was lucky to barely survive today. But unfortunately, the damage was already done to us in the first leg. We should have never lost the first leg 5-2. That said, we had two legitimate penalty calls that didn't go our way today. That's how it is sometimes."

He went on:

"This one is going to hurt for a while because we wanted to win this Champions League for Italy. We've let our country down and what's worse is that the Azzurri will not be in the World Cup next month. Winning the Champions League this year meant everything for us. Sadly though, these days its tough being Italian in the world of football and based on the recent performances of Italian teams, these last few months are worth forgetting."
