At the Coppa…

Roma vs. Inter (game in progress)

Ray Hudson speaks into the mic, “Cool as Father Christmas” watching Philippe Mexes score on the volley for Roma, in the 36th minute of the Coppa Italia.

Mexes, once courted by Sir Alex Ferguson, turned down the mighty Manchester United Gaffer to join the Latin fury of Roma. Roma are a team with a future calling and today we should see the purpose of a squad full of winning desire especially with a defender like Mexes scoring only his seventh ever goal in Italian football.

Half-time at Stadio Olimpico, and the Roman Gladiators are headed to repeat as Coppa Italian champions, stay tuned folks with more goals surely to come.
Meanwhile, the podium of Glory awaits a winner but looking at Inter manager Roberto Mancini, his casual manner suggests a man moving on.
Is the double still possible?
Perhaps but Simone Perrotta has just given Roma a 2-goal lead early in the second.
