Inter’s Christian Eriksen has shared his delight off the back of firing the Nerazzurri through to the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia with a trademark free-kick deep into injury time.

The 28-year-old Denmark international, who has hugely struggled during his 12-month spell at Inter, came on as a substitute near the end of the match and stepped up when it mattered as he scored a fantastic goal which left AC Milan’s goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu rooted to the spot.

Romelu Lukaku’s penalty had previously cancelled out Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s first-half opener, with AC Milan playing the final half-hour down to 10 men after the Swedish striker was sent off for two bookings.

“I feel very happy,” Eriksen explained to Inter’s official club broadcaster Inter TV following the full-time whistle at San Siro tonight.

“I tried to make the most of the minutes I was allowed and today there was a chance to do well.

“The free-kick was the perfect opportunity to score, I’m happy.

Eriksen then discussed the game itself and admitted that he and his Nerazzurri teammates knew that it was not going to be an easy one against the Rossoneri.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game,” he admitted.

“The intensity and level of play is very high in a match like the derby.

“It was tough but we are happy to have got through to the next round.

Asked if he wished to dedicate what was his fifth goal in an Inter shirt, he concluded by responding: “I dedicate the goal to my new born daughter, my family and all the fans.”

Eriksen has now made 15 appearances this season and his goal against AC Milan was his first goal contribution of the campaign.
