Roma name CL squad

Roma have named their squad for the Champions League knockout stages, with new signing Jonathan Silva cup-tied.

The Giallorossi named a 23-man squad for the group stages, but that has been cut by two as Nura and Hector Moreno have left the club.

Emerson Palmieri, who left in the transfer window to join Chelsea, was not included in the original squad and nor is his replacement, Silva.

The Argentine made four appearances for Sporting in the group stage, including in the 2-1 defeat to Juventus in Turin.

Otherwise the squad is the same, with the likes of Daniele De Rossi, Edin Dzeko and Radja Nainggolan all included.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s side face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Last 16.

Roma squad for Champions League: Alisson, Bruno Peres, Defrel, De Rossi, Dzeko, El Shaarawy, Fazio, Florenzi, Gonalons, Karsdorp, Kolarov, Manolas, Nainggolan, Juan Jesus, Perotti, Pellegrini, Gerson, Schick, Skorupski, Strootman, Under
