AS Roma wins first Serie A competition, Wijnaldum makes debut

AS Roma won the first league game of the season on Sunday night. It wasnt easy, but the points go to Rome: 0-1. Georginio Wijnaldum made his debut in the second half.
Wijnaldum started on the bench, but Tonny Vilhena was at the base of Salernitana. The midfielder came over from Spain
s Espanyol this week. Vilhena saw that Roma had the best of the game and also made the most claim to a goal. The goal also followed after more than half an hour of play. Salernitanas goalkeeper had no answer to a low shot by Bryan Cristante.
There were fewer points of interest in the second half. Roma controlled the game, but at the same time had to remain vigilant for Salernitana
s counter. Roma trainer José Mourinho brought Wijnaldum inside the lines fifteen minutes before and seemed to have applied a golden switch: Wijnaldum scored, but was whistled back due to offside play. After ninety minutes and a bit, the referee whistled off.
