SCOTT PETERSON - Monday, December 3, 2012
Michael Bradley and AS Roma earned all the spoils on Sunday thanks to three second half goals to come from behind and beat AS Siena.
Bradley put in a full 90 minutes of action in the Roman midfield, but it was Siena striker Mattia Destro that ended up haunting his former team.
The hosts delighted the home fans in the 26th minute by taking the lead through Portuguese defender Luis Carlos Novo Neto, who rose to meet Francesco Valiani's corner.
The equalizer fell in the 63rd minute with the move starting with Francesco Totti picking out Alessandro Florenzi in the left side of the box. The young Italian the centered with the outside of his right boot for Mattia Destro, who headed home into an empty net.
World champion Simone Perrotta gave the Romans the advantage for good in the 86th minute, as the midfielder fired home from just outside the box with a low, right-footed effort.
Destro then added his second to salt the game away in the second minute of stoppage time by finishing off a counter attack.
With the win, Roma kept pace with the league leaders and remain in sixth place. Up next for Bradley and Roma is a home date versus fourth place Fiorentina on Saturday.
