After netting a brace on his debut, new Inter signing Joaquin Correa admitted that he couldn’t wait to find the back of the net again for the Nerazzurri.
The Argentina international arrived from Lazio earlier this week and made an immediate impact, scoring twice late on to help Inter to a 3-1 win over Hellas Verona in Serie A yesterday.
In an interview with Italian television broadcaster DAZN following the final whistle at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi, as reported by FCInterNews.it, Correa confessed that his impact had been a dream come true and was targeting more goals.
“I dreamed of being here, now I have a great desire to show what I can do. Tonight I scored two and I hope there will be many others,” the 27-year-old declared.
“I expect a lot from this team, we have a quality group and we must aim for more, as always.”
Correa’s first goal in an Inter shirt came from a fine header, before he doubled his tally with a driving effort from the edge of the box deep into stoppage time, and reflected on his brace.
“I dreamed of a debut like that yesterday, of arriving and scoring a goal to show who I am immediately. Then I scored another one, I felt an immense joy,” he continued.
“The second was a good goal, but also the first with my head. My last header came with Sevilla. But the important thing tonight was to take the three points. Right from the start, in the second half we saw a team with a different attitude, we never gave up.”
Correa will look to make a similar impact in Inter’s next game, as the Nerazzurri face an away trip to Sampdoria after the international break.
