The Bosnian striker’s 52nd-minute goal proved enough after a 2-1 first-leg loss in Ukraine, with 10-man Shakhtar failing to find the late strike they needed after Ivan Ordets was sent off late on. Cengiz Under’s goal in the first leg last month ultimately proved crucial for Roma, but Dzeko was the hero on the night and also proved instrumental in Shakhtar defender Ordets being shown a straight red card with 12 minutes left. That sending-off led to tensions spilling over, with Shakhtar’s Facundo Ferreyra picking up a booking for shoving a ballboy over an advertising board. Eusebio Di Francesco’s side are the second Italian team to ad- vance to the quarter-finals after Juventus, with the draw for the last eight taking place on Friday. “The standing ovation is not for me but for everyone, we are deservedly in the quarter-finals,” said Dzeko of the applause which accompanied him off the pitch. “We managed to do some- thing Roma hadn’t in 10 years, so going forward to play against the best makes us all very proud. “We are among the eight best sides in Europe.” Roma did not concede a goal at home in the group stage and hammered Chelsea 3-0 at the Sta - dio Olimpico, so the home fans in the crowd of 47,693 would have been confident their side could get the job done. The Ukrainians dominated early possession though, and there was a scare for the hosts when Alessandro Florenzi nearly nodded a free-kick into his own net. Ferreyra then came close after Federico Fazio lost the ball just outside his own box, before Roma struck seven minutes into the second half. Kevin Strootman sent Dzeko through as Shakhtar tried with- out success to play the offside trap, and the Bosnian forward prodded a shot through the legs of goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov and into the net for his fourth goal in the Champions League this season. Dzeko was then brought down by Ordets who got a straight red card for his troubles, making Shakhtar’s task that bit harder. Roma pounce on mistake “We knew that sooner or lat- er they would make a mistake and we’d pounce on it,” said Roma coach Di Francesco. “If we face any opponent with this attitude and determination, we can go far.” “Roma made the most of a single moment,” said Shakhtar coach Paulo Fonseca. “Dzeko of course was a key player, but apart from his goal they didn’t have a chance, we had possession. If we had finished off the chances we had in the first leg the match would already have been over.” Roma held on, and after Ita- ly’s shock failure to qualify for the World Cup, their progress to the last eight along with Juventus is a boost for the country. There have not been two Italian clubs in the quarter-fi- nals of the Champions League since 2006/07, when Roma joined eventual winners AC Milan in the last eight. There will also be at least three Italian coaches in the quarter-finals — Di Francesco, Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus and Vincenzo Montella of Sevilla. Di Francesco added: “I spoke with Montella a few days ago and we said we’d meet in the final.” Antonio Conte could make that four with his Chelsea side facing Barcelona on Wednes- day.—AFP Dzeko strikes to take Roma into Champions League last eight Edin Dzeko celebrates after scoring the goal that took Roma through to the Champions League quarter-finals at the expense of Shakhtar Donetsk.PHOTO: AFP Shan United loses to Filipino club with penalty shot...AFC "B" Coaching Certificate Course launched in Yangon.....EXTERNAL RELATIONS: VP U Myint Swe to attend Crans Montana Forum on Africa and South-South Cooperation in Morocco...Thai-Myanmar border trade increases by $90 million this FY...UMFCCI, Switzerland delegation discuss IP law at Economic Dialogue...External trade exceeds expected amount in first week of March...Pyithu Hluttaw Deputy Speaker U T Kun Myat receives technical cooperation programme manager of IPU...Thura U Shwe Mann receives Italian Ambassador...Amyotha Hluttaw Deputy Speaker U Aye Tha Aung receives technical cooperation program manager of IPU....."OPINION": "History, not the UN, will be final judge on Rakhine".....ARTICLES: "Glorious Mogok City to celebrate Festival of Founding 800th Anniversary" - By Maung Tha (Archaeology)..."Six Leading Myanmar Businesses Invite Collaboration on Gender Equality on International Women’s Day"
