After Chris Smalling's three goals in 2019, Tammy Abraham became the second English player to score in Serie A for Roma.
Tammy Abraham scored his first Serie A goal at Roma's win against Salernitana. Olivier Giroud opened his AC Milan account by opening it with a double defeat of Cagliari.
Abraham won a classy victory from just outside the area to secure Roma's third win against their newly promoted hosts.
Jose Mourinho also scored a second goal with the England striker Jordan Veretout, while Lorenzo Pellegrini scored twice.
Giroud scored Milan's third- and fourth goals as they defeated Cagliari 4-1.
France's forward, 34 years old, was a team-mate with Abraham at Chelsea for two seasons and scored from the spot after Kevin Strootman had handled.
The San Siro scored all five goals in the first period, with Sandro Tonali scoring a stunning free-kick that put the hosts ahead.
Cagliari was leveled by Alessandro Deiola, but Diaz diverted Rafael Leao’s shot to restore Milan’s advantage before Giroud’s double ended the game at half-time.
Roma and Milan, last season's Serie A runners up, are two of five sides that have started the campaign with two wins from 2.
