goalgist 11

Tammy Abraham wrote his name into the history books, as his two goals in a 3-0 win over Torino meant he became the highest English scorer in a single Serie A season in history.

Roma signed Abraham from Chelsea last summer, with Jose Mourinho of the opinion that the forward could flourish in Italy.

Mourinho was proved correct, as the former Chelsea and Aston Villa forward, scored his 16th and 17th league goals for his side in Turin in their final league game of the season.

His form kept Roma in the hunt both domestically and in Europe, and his two goals on Friday guaranteed their place in next season’s Europa League.

Abraham’s two goals took him past Gerry Hitchens’ record of 16 goals in a season.

Few English players have made a career in Serie A, but Hitchens’ tally with Inter Milan was set back in the 1961/62 season.

A shot at silverware is still within Roma’s grasp, as they take on Feyenoord in the final of the Europa Conference League on Wednesday.
