Inter striker Edin Dzeko isn’t bothered by having scored a technically difficult strike agaisnt Sheriff Tiraspol after missing easier chances on paper in past matches.
Speaking to InterTV after the Nerazzurri’s Champions League clash with the Moldovan side, the Bosnian explained that sometimes for a striker bad misses go side by side with excellent strikes.
Dzeko had been culpable for some of the Nerazzurri’s worst missed opportunities when they drew against Shakhtar Donetsk without either side scoring, but he quickly got on the scoresheet against Sheriff.
The 35-year-old had to get his technique right to hit the volley into the top corner and past the Sheriff keeper when the ball into the box fell to him, but he showed why he has a reputation as a technically proficient striker.
For the ex-Roma striker, this is just part of being a striker and he is just glad to have scored a goal that helped his team against Sheriff.
“I scored a beautiful goal,” he said, “sometimes you miss the easy ones and put away the difficult ones, but it can also be a question of concentration. The important thing is that I helped the team to win.”
“We are still behind in the group,” he went on, “especially after the first two games in which we deserved more. Today Sheriff arrived here with six points, it was important to win.”
Of the Moldovan side he stated, “Winning in Madrid and against Shakhtar is not easy, on the counterattack they are very dangerous.”
He concluded, “Now we need to rest well and then we need to be ready. The Derby d’Italia is always the Derby d’Italia, but it is as important as every match. We hope to have a great match.”
