ECL: Abraham breaks record held since 1930, mocks Bodo/Clint fans as Roma reach semi-finals


 Roma striker, Tammy Abraham has mocked their last night’s Europa Conference League opponents Bodo/Glimt fans after his goal helped Jose Mourinho’s side book their place in the semi-final and equal a club record in the process.

Abraham, who left Chelsea last summer, opened the scoring for Roma in the 5th minute on Thursday, before Nicolo Zainolo scored a hat-trick in the Italian capital.

The reverse fixture ended in a 2-1 defeat to Roma away in Norway last week.

Following their defeat in Norway, Abraham was struck with a snowball thrown by a home fan as he headed for the tunnel.

But the 24-year-old had the last laugh on Thursday, however, writing on Instagram after the victory: “No snowballs in Rome. Semi-finals here we come!!”

Abraham’s fourth minute effort, his 24th goal of the season, also saw him equal the record for most goals scored in a debut season by a Roma player.

The record was originally set by Rodolfo Volk in 1929-30, with the England striker joining the esteemed company of Francesco Totti and Edin Dzeko in hitting that number since.
