Roma coach Di Francesco fumes after Chievo draw: You can't switch off

AS Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco says his players "switched off" for their 2-2 draw with Chievo Verona.

Chievo scored twice in two minutes to cancel out Roma's goals scored by Stephan El Shaarawy 10 and Bryan Cristante.

"It all seemed to be under control, but those are the situations I really don't like, because we need to learn to kill off matches," Di Francesco told DAZN.

“We concede goals far too easily. We barely allowed anything to Chievo other than shots from distance and a deflected cross. We cut off their passing channels, but the worst thing you can do is think you're in control and then not finish it off.

“I was trying to keep the concentration up, even if we had gone to 3-0. We had so many chances to seal it and then conceded on a half-chance. Valter Birsa was able to curl the ball into the corner where our goalkeeper couldn't reach."
