It was a case of ‘cometh the hour cometh the man’ for Samir Nasri wasn’t it as he picked the hour mark to strike his first goal of the season for City to send us on our way to victory over Roma.

A stunning strike, almost out of nothing, from Nasri that flew in off the post put us ahead with Pablo Zabaleta completing the job late on to book our place in the last 16.

On a personal note he told sky sports 5 that it was an important goal for him with it taking him a little time to get back to the right level after his injury but it was more about the team as we again proved to our doubters that we’re a collective and not about individuals.

We went in at half time level at nil-nil, we weren’t posing too much of a threat but were also keeping Roma quiet too. Nerves were jangling among some of the fans but Nasri’s revealed that Manuel Pellegrini was very calm with his half time talk and stressed that we didn’t need to panic as our patience would pay off…. And it did!

He, as well as paying tribute to Joe Hart, said: ‘The manager told us to take our time. We won our game against Bayern Munich in the last minute as well and we knew that we had to be patient.

‘For me my strike was important but at 1-0 the save that Joe made on the corner was amazing.’

Bring on the last 16, whoever we get!
