Dzeko: Could be my best goal ever

Edin Dzeko was in top form on Thursday night as he netted a hat-trick in Roma's 4-1 Europa League win over Viktoria Plzen.

The victory secured the Giallorossi's position as Group E winners, and the striker believes his first goal of the game was perhaps his best ever.

The 11th-minute strike saw Dzeko pull off a Cruyff turn at the byline before finding the top corner of the goal with a left-footed effort from a tight angle.

“It was [a good night's work] and it wasn't easy because Plzen are a decent side," Dzeko said, according to the club's official site. "They played well in the first half and scored from their only chance.

"They only had one in the second half too but Alisson pulled out a magnificent save, then we went and scored two more."

“It was a really nice goal – with my left too," he added. "I don't know if it's my best ever, I can't remember. Perhaps it is.

“I've said lots of times that I feel good now. It was important to win and that's what we did. Now we're through to the next round.”
