Continuing my weekly article inspired by Gazzetta dello Sport, here are the performances of all Italian soccer players operating in foreign European leagues.

Heroes of the week
Damiano Tommasi is back with a vengeance, just like the entire Levante team. Los Granotes are having a tough season in La Liga so far, but they managed to earn 3 points today thanks in particular to Tommasi’s efforts and the goal the ex-Roma midfielder scored in the 1st half.
Other players deserving kudos this week include Roberto Mirri (the Mons captain played 120 minutes and scored a vital goal in the 2-2 cup draw against Wetteren, won on penalties by Mons) as well as Joseph Oshadogan, the ex-Reggina defender of Tanzanian descent who is now playing for Widzew Łódź in Poland.
Which by the way brings me to the addition of a new European league in our “Italian Players Around the World” weekly article: Poland. In addition of Oshadogan, we’ll be bringing you updates on the performances of Stefano Napoleoni (Widzew Łódź) and Roberto Cantoro (Wisła Kraków).
