Roy Hodgson will use his own personal memories of the Stadio Olimpico as ‘a lucky ground’ to inspire his Fulham players before they take on Roma tonight.
It’s been a lucky ground for me. A win against Roma would take us one step closer to that aim. The last time I was here, we played a game later referred to as the ‘Game of the Year’ in Serie A. My second game in my second spell with Inter – and we won 5-4. I’m not expecting that. But I’ve played against Roma and Lazio many times, and I’ve always enjoyed coming here. My memories are more positive than negative.
