The Roma midfielder, for his part, was in rueful mood and claimed that he had never felt so bad.Ã¢ÂÂItÃ¢ÂÂs the worst moment of my career,Ã¢ÂÂ admitted the player who had scored one of the decisive spot-kicks for Italy in the 2006 World Cup final and only last weekend converted a similar effort to grab victory for the Romans against Genoa.
