Quiz: Can you remember the first ever Roma lineup to feature no Italian players?

On 8th November, 2015, Roma fielded a lineup of 11 foreign players for the first time in their history.

It was a signficant occasion, as they took on Lazio in the Derby Della Capitale, claiming a 2-0 win. But it was more than just an important win over their rivals – it was a unique day for Roma.

For the first time ever, there were no Italian players in their starting XI. One Italian player, Alessandro Florenzi, did come on as a substitute in the second half, but those taking to the field from the first minute all came from different countries.

So, cast your mind back to Roma’s squad from the 2015-16 season, and see if you can name the lineup Rudi Garcia sent out that day.
