ROME, March 25 (Xinhua) -- Roma head coach Rudi Garcia praised his side's attitude following their 2-1 win over Torino in the Italian Serie A at home on Tuesday.

Substitute Alessandro Florenzi scored an injury-time winner to help the hosts beat Torino in a game where both sides created some chances.

"We never stopped playing, right to the end, and the second goal was well constructed," said Garcia.

"Against a very smart Torino side, we knew they would hit us on the counter-attack and we made a few too many mistakes in midfield," he said.

"I am happy, as we played with intelligence and above all that desire to win, as we ended the match with six forwards on the field."

"We've been scoring at least two goals per game for a while, so that means the front line is working well. We need a little more patience when playing against a side like this, that's all," he said.

His Torino counterpart Giampiero Ventura felt his men created huge problems for Roma despite the defeat.

"When you come to Roma and create this many clear-cut chances, it's impressive for a side that was in Serie B last season," he said.

"On the one hand there is regret we lost the game, but on the other I am happy as this team is improving constantly in the way it reads the play, the timing and combinations," he said.
