Tammy Abraham kicks off his AS Roma career with a standing ovation from the club’s fans following his debut.
Abraham, who joined the Italian outfit from Chelsea in a deal worth £34 million last week helped his side to secure a 3-1 win over Florentina as he provided two assists and hit the crossbar.
The 23-year-old made an immediate impact after he was named in Jose Mourinho’s starting XI for Roma’s opening match of the 2021-22 Serie A campaign on Sunday night.
The England international set up Henrikh Mkhitaryan to break the deadlock for Roma midway through the first half.
He then provided the assist for the first goal of Jordan Veretout’s second-half brace.
Abraham also hit the crossbar and drew a foul from the Fiorentina goalkeeper that resulted in an early red card for the visitors.
The youngster was then given a standing ovation from the Roma fans when he was replaced by Eldor Shomurodov with 20 minutes to go.
