Justin Kluivert scored his first goal for Roma and then immediately took the opportunity to dedicate it to former Ajax team-mate Appie Nouri.

Kluivert, 19, came through the Ajax system with Nouri, who suffered cardiac arrhythmias while playing in a friendly against Werder Bremen on July 2 2017.

Nouri was airlifted to a hospital but suffered "serious and permanent" brain damage according to numerous reports.
