AC Milan defender Romagnoli happy to celebrate birthday with Coppa shootout win

AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli was delighted with their Coppa Italia shootout victory over Torino.

The Rossoneri had beaten Toro 2-0 in Serie A on Saturday and were unable to break them down after 120 minutes.

“It's the best way to celebrate my birthday with a win," smiled Romagnoli, now 26, on RAI Sport.

“We had several scoring opportunities and in the end managed to get the victory. We don't give up, we won't let anything go."

He added: “There's a long way to go in the season, so we have to take it one game at a time. Now we've got Cagliari, then Atalanta. We'll try to give our all, as always."
