This Tuesday Paulo Dybala was the figure of Roma in the 3-0 win against Monza. The 28-year-old from Cordoba scored two goals and had an important role in the team he leads Jose Mourinho and for now alone leads the A league until the fourth date is completed. After the match played in the Olympic Stadium from the capital, the Portuguese coach was full of praise for the striker who is looking for his place in the list of the Argentine team for the World Cup in Qatar.

“Dybala was incredible,” said Mou in a section of the press conference. But later he deepened his comments about the native of Laguna Larga. He highlighted the growth that he had since his arrival at the entity in the last transfer market and pointed to the level that he has been showing. In the match against his former club, Juventus, he provided the assist for his team’s goal.

In an interview with DAZNonce again highlighted Dybala and it was awarded that the coach of the National Team, Lionel Scaloniis going to add an elite footballer in the World Cup: “A Paulo that grows and for us is fantastic, anticipating what can happen in November and December in Qatar. Perhaps Scaloni also owes us a bottle of wine to celebrate one more top player for him”.

The best moments of Roma’s victory

“In his case, the talent is available to the team, he is not isolated from the rest of his teammates. Even in the defensive phase he does an extraordinary job. It does not come from an easy history in terms of injuries”, added the Lusitanian strategist.

“Last year against Juventus, when they replaced him, I told him ‘you’re a good boy’. I told him the same thing today.” When he came out he told me: ‘Mister (that’s what DTs are called in the top leagues in Europe), he was just a short distance away and I scored the third goal.’ It is a top”, concluded Mou.

Paulo left Juventus in tears as he did not renew his contract and sought new horizons. The possibility in Rome seduced him because he was going to be able to have continuity and add the most minutes to be able to convince Scaloni in recent months to include him in the World Cup squad. For now he was a starter in the four Calcio games and harvested 303 minutes.

His first goal in the Roman night came after Tammy Abraham’s header and after lowering it and putting in a run he defined with his left foot. It was a great goal. In the second he captured a rebound and from the floor he widened the differences when the first half hour of the match had been completed. With his doublet he reached the 100 goals in Serie A (in 275 games). There were 82 with Juve, 16 with Palermo and these two with Roma.

After debuting in the Primera de Instituto de Córdoba and shining in the team that fought for promotion in the 2011/2012 season, Dybala was transferred to Palermo and arrived in Italy a decade ago. He had good performances and was distinguished by his ability. That earned him the calls in the processes of Gerardo Martino, Edgardo Bauza and Jorge Sampaoli, which took him to the 2018 World Cup in Russia and played a few minutes against France in the round of 16 elimination.

For the World Cup he will arrive in his fullness and began a season that is key to his goal for being one of the 26 that will make up the squad in the Middle East. Scaloni also gave him confidence and was summoned in the last calls and scored a goal against Italy in the victory in La Finalissima. His start in Serie A 2022/2023 excites him and ratified his credentials to be in Qatar.
