Edin Dzeko feels Roma are “deservedly in the Champions League quarter-finals” after beating Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Bosnian got the decisive goal at the Olimpico, so along with a 2-1 loss in Ukraine, they qualified on away goals.
“The standing ovation has to be for everyone, as we all did our job until the last minute and are deservedly in the quarter-finals,” the striker told Mediaset Premium.
Dzeko almost left the Giallorossi in January, as Chelsea made a huge offer.
“I didn’t want to leave, because all season e play for nights like this. We managed to do something Roma hadn’t in 10 years, so going forward to play against the best makes us all very proud.
“I am not thinking about who we face, because they are all strong and wherever we play, it’ll be a packed stadium and great atmosphere.
“We are among the eight best sides in Europe, so that means we’re strong too.”
