Inter Midfielder Christian Eriksen: “We Came To Napoli To Win, We Are One Game Closer To Scudetto”

After netting the equaliser in yesterday’s 1-1 draw against Napoli in Serie A, Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen insisted that the Nerazzurri had gone there looking to win.

The Denmark international hit a fine effort from the edge of the box in the second half to draw Inter level after they had fallen behind to a Samir Handanovic own goal, leaving the Nerazzurri nine points clear at the top with seven games remaining.

In an interview with InterTV after the final whistle at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, Eriksen outlined the team’s ambitions, whilst also claiming that he had trained to strike with his unfavoured left foot, after using it to score the equaliser.

“I’m right-footed, but I also like to use my left, if necessary and I certainly don’t hold back. I grew up trying to train them both, but I always use my right foot during freekicks,” the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder revealed.

“We came here to win, but we were unlucky in the first half. In the second half we fought to try to equalise and succeeded, earning an important point.

“At this point it is one less match, and slowly we are approaching the finish line. We wanted to win, but the important thing was to have picked up points in a difficult pitch like that of Napoli. We are focused on our target,” the 29-year-old concluded.

Inter look to move a step closer to the Scudetto when they take on Spezia in Serie A on Wednesday, with Antonio Conte’s side only needing a maximum 12 points to seal the title.
