Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Former West Ham striker Marco Borriello said he is determined to disprove claims his stuttering career is over after yet another frustrating spell at struggling Serie A giants Roma. Borriello completed his return Genoa in January after failing to convince Roma coach Rudi Garcia or sporting director Walter Sabatini, in spite of a number of injuries among the club's forwards, of his worth. Borriello, who failed to impress during a fruitless six-month spell with the Hammers from January to June 2014, has hit out at claims from Roma fans that he is "finished".

Although however replay was displaying the Montenegrin forward to be in an offside position but the goal was still allowed. Other than this, Juventus never really did stand out in any way as they struggled to create anymore goal scoring chances. As a matter of fact it was Cagliari who came closer on scoring on a number of occasions.
