Napoli destroy Roma, book tickets to Coppa Italia final

New, comments

Goals from José Callejón, Gonzalo Higuaín and Jorginho - and a rare clean sheet from the Napoli defense - put the partenopei through to the Coppa Italia final, where they'll face Fiorentina. Now, let's party.

MARADONA!
MARADONA!

OH MY GOD WE DID IT. NAPOLI BEAT ROMA 3-0 AND ARE GOING TO THE COPPA ITALIA FINAL IN ROME. NAPOLI BEAT ROMA. NAPOLI BEAT ROMA CONVINCINGLY. NAPOLI REFUSED TO LET ROMA SCORE. NAPOLI SCORED THREE GOALS. NAPOLI WON 5-3 ON AGGREGATE.

I'm sorry for all the caps but it was just unbelievable. Where was the defense that normally falls apart at every threat (not that we'll miss them)? Where was the inability to finish a shot? Why wasn't Marek disappointing? And was there really no Armero involved?

There's so much about this game that deserves attention. So much praise to be given to the players. So many candles lit to Saint Diego Maradona.

But for now, let's just enjoy the moment. And highlight reels. And photos of Ziggy smiling. And Marek looking like a grand capitano. Let's celebrate. Because this side - they earned it. They really earned it.

See you in Rome on May 3, Fiorentina.
