Lazio’s U19 side came away with one of the best wins of its season when it defeated Atalanta U19 in the Coppa Italia Primavera.
Damiano Franco earned a start for Lazio U19 and wound up scoring the third goal of the match, which went a long way in helping the team hold on for the win.
Franco provided his thoughts on the key win for Lazio U19, with comments being relayed by Lazio’s official website.
We all won the game together. We did well; we attacked the opponent from the beginning, maybe in the second half we got too low.
Atalanta attacked us at the beginning of the second half. We suffered in the first quarter of an hour of the second half but for them, the third goal was a cold shower. All my teammates in the first team helped me.
With this success, we will return to play in the league with greater awareness.
Lazio U19 will now face off against Inter Milan U19 in the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia Primavera. This should be another test for some of Lazio’s more promising prospects, including Franco.
