Napoli Star Ezequiel Lavezzi Hails Team-Mates For Victory Over Roma

Napoli's Ezequiel Lavezzi is delighted with the workrate of his tea-mates in their first home victory of the season, over Roma.
Napoli striker Ezequiel Lavezzi was among the best on the field in a 2-0 victory over Roma and has hailed his team-mates for getting a win on home soil at the Stadio San Paolo.

"I think our determination on the field helped us to win, that was missing here for some time," he was quoted as saying by Il Corriere dello Sport.

"Did I help out the three-man defence. I'm not sure. i think the merit is not mine alone but the whole team, who worked hard to achieve this victory. It is an important one because it helps us regain confidence, since we had not won at home.

"What can I do with [Marek] Hamsik and [Edinson] Cavani? We must stay calm, the most important thing is the team. You can't go anywhere if you don't play with all 11 players."

The Partenopei now have 11 points, sitting joint second with AC Milan behind Lazio at the moment.
