Legendary Inter midfielder Esteban Cambiasso was a guest on Sky Sport Italia last night after Croatia’s impressive 4-1 win at home against Greece at the Maksimir Stadion in Zagreb in the first leg of two play-off fixtures for next summer’s FIFA World Cup finals in Russia.
The former Argentina international, who was an integral part of José Mourinho’s all-conquering treble winning side in 2010, commented on Ivan Perisic’s performance in the match where the winger scored Croatia’s 3rd goal moments after Greece had pulled one back.
“Sometimes you have to understand the dynamics of the squad in which you play. Your positioning, who you have next to you and the likes. Today Croatia had tactical freedom, even though everyone occupied their roles in a very intelligent way. Perisic is becoming more and more important for the national team and Inter, who knew that they should keep him after a somewhat tormented summer. He is very important for the self confidence of the teams he plays for” Cambiasso concluded.
Esteban Cambiasso, nicknamed Cuchu, spent 10 seasons at Inter making 420 appearances and scoring 51 goals across all competitions after joining the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2004 from Real Madrid. During his stint at Inter Cambiasso helped the team win 15 titles, including 5 Serie A titles, 4 Coppa Italia titles and the 2010 Champions League title.
