1st June marks the birthday of one of Roma’s greatest ever goalscorers, Abel Balbo.
The Argentine striker led the line with distinction for Roma during an initial five-year stay in the 1990s, never failing to reach double figures, before re-joining the club ahead of the season in which they won their third Serie A title – a campaign in which he had to settle for a lesser role.
