Roma call up speedy attacking winger Joao Costa for Frosinone match

With Roma's defensive lineup thinning out due to the absence of Diego Llorente and Chris Smalling, Jose Mourinho is gearing up for a tactical shift. Word has it that Mourinho might deploy a four-man defense in the upcoming match against Frosinone, a piece of news that made waves in Trigoria today. During his press conference, the Portuguese manager revealed an exciting development: 18-year-old Primavera defender Joao Costa received his inaugural call-up.

This marks a significant milestone for Costa, who is set to make his debut for the Giallorossi. His inclusion in Mourinho's squad opens up the possibility of adopting a back-four system. What makes Costa an intriguing choice is his versatility. The Brazilian attacker is a highly skilled fullback, boasting excellent dribbling skills and impressive speed, making him an ideal fit for a 4-2-3-1 formation.

In the initial five matches of the season, Costa showcased his talent in Roma's Primavera team, contributing 1 goal and 1 assist in over 380 minutes of playing time. This promising track record suggests that he could play a pivotal role in shoring up Roma's attack in the challenging matches ahead.
