Many people may have wrinkled their noses when Rudi Garcia announced to the press that the young Lukasz Skorupski would be guarding Roma’s goal against Juventus due to Morgan de Sanctis suffering of muscular problems. The game counted nothing in terms of the Campionato, but it would help evaluate Roma against Italian Champions Juventus, therefore Skorupski’s inexperience may not help the Roman cause.
However this wasn’t the case as Skorupski put in a capital performance. He was brave in his aerial defense, and was effective between the posts. He also received a great round of applause from Roma faithful after his good save on Lichtsteiner’s shot. On Osvaldo’s shot and goal he had no faults due to the Italian striker’s proximity to the goal.
He was applauded by Morgan De Sanctis who had this to say after the match:
“He showed us today what he has shown us in practice. He’s already liked for his skill and his hard work ethic, I think that he is Roma’s future goalkeeper.”
It may be too early to make any calls about the future, but Roma is on the right path. Roma discovers Lukasz Skorupski.
