Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall believes Genoa have turned a corner and Aurelio Andreazzoli can revive this great club.

In years gone by, Genoa would not have been able to come back against Roma. In seasons past, they would not have been able to hold out to beat Fiorentina, but this team is different.

There will be bumps along the way, but nobody betting on soccer would put them among the relegation candidates.

Rossi has seven goals in 30 caps for Italy and scored over 100 times for Villarreal and Fiorentina.
