Inter debutant Joaquin Correa shone in an otherwise disappointing match against Hellas Verona.
As discussed by Italian journalist Alessandro Barbano in yesterday’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, the 27-year-old Argentinian forward was a bright spot for the Nerazzurri in their 3-1 win over the Gialloblu on Friday.
Correa was brought on by coach Simone Inzaghi for the final 20 minutes and exploded, scoring twice to secure the win for the Milanese club, an unforgettable debut for the player.
Apart from Correa’s performance, however, Inter were disappointing. In the first half they allowed Hellas Verona to play to from the back and the Nerazzurri midfield was slow and predictable.
Hakan Calhanoglu and Marcelo Brozovic both appeared lost, failing to link up well together and instead wandering around alone.
Goalkeeper Samir Handanovic also disappointed, giving the Gialloblu a gift that put them 1-0 up in the first half.
Despite the victory, Inter will still have to be frustrated with themselves for the poor performance, looking to learn as much as possible from the experience in order to grow.
There are still doubts around the midfield, which bothered Antonio Conte last season. These doubts now both Inzaghi as well.
