The Venezia striker scored the decisive goal that saw Roma fall to a 3-2 defeat at the Pier Luigi Penzo Stadium.

His 74th minute strike saw the Nigerian striker seal all 3 points for the Paolo Zanetti side. The first time Venezia have scored 3 goals in a Serie A game in nearly 20 years.

David Okereke bamboozled Rui Patricio with his footwork before netting the winner. It was a smooth display from the Nigerian forward to hand Venezia a memorable win against the Jose Mourinho side.

David Okereke’s well-taken goal earned an important victory for Venezia as they move to 15th spot on the table with 12 points from 12 games.

Tyronne Ebuehi was also impressive. The 25-year-old made some last minute blocks to deny Roma victory and ensure the result remained unchanged.
