Liverpool defender Van Dijk: Roma goals frustrating; they'll haunt me

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk fears Roma's two late goals will "haunt" them.

Liverpool defeated Roma last night 5-2 in the first-leg of their Champions League semifinal at Anfield - though had led 5-0.

"Those 5-1 and 5-2 goals are now what is haunting through my mind," confessed Van Dijk. "It is clear that 5-2 is a very good result, but giving away two goals is very frustrating.

"The way in which AS Roma started to play football got us into trouble, and they played more directly," said the Dutchman. "We should have dealt with that better.

"It's going to be tough, but we'll be ready. 5-2 is not a bad result to travel with. That must be enough for us."
