VIDEO: Skillful Roma star Radja Nainggolan toys with Lazio playersPublished December 05, 2016
Radja Nainggolan stole the show for AS Roma in their derby win over Lazio on Sunday. The Belgian midfielder scored in the 2-0 victory and inspired social media when he toyed with his opponents. Tremendously skillful, he showed off his ability to the amusement of Roma fans.
Nainggolan appeared to have backed himself into a corner when he was chased by two Lazio players near his own box. Pretending to run back towards the touchline, he lost both players with a magnificent Cruyff turn.

Having gone ahead through a Kevin Strootman strike midway through the second half, Roma had their advantage doubled when Nainggolan unleashed a shot from range. Dripping with venom, it skimmed the surface and Federico Marchetti couldn’t stop it.
