Juventus coach Gigi del Neri was delighted with their Europa League victory at Shamrock Rovers.
Amauri bagged a brace at the Tallaght Stadium to hand Del Neri a winning start to his Juve career.
“The match did count and the victory was important,” he said of the 2-0 away win.
“We are in good shape physically and will take it one step at a time. I liked the team, we need to get the right mentality and work on our movement.
Del Neri added: “Winning is important because it gives you a sense of security and confidence.
“We are working to forget last season, but having said that one must always learn from negative situations.”
