VIDEO: Lazio fans salute squad

Over a thousand Lazio fans gave players a send-off at the train station ahead of their Coppa Italia semi-final with Napoli.

The team bus struggled to get through the singing crowd outside the Termini station in Rome, then security guards helped create a tunnel to allow the players through.

Squad members were greeted with hugs and recommendations as they made their way to the train heading to Naples.

Lazio fans have been barred from travelling for the second leg of the semi-final at the Stadio San Paolo due to security concerns.

They therefore decided to show their support to the team in a different way.

The first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final ended 1-1 at the Stadio Olimpico, so Lazio must score at least one goal to go through.
