Former Inter striker Julio Cruz has been discussing the game he took part in over Juventus in 2003 where he scored twice to help Inter win 3-1 in Turin, according to a report in the Italian media.

Whilst being interviewed for the matchday program for Inter vs Juventus on Sunday night, as has been reported by FcINternews, Julio Cruz explained that it was the most beautiful game of his career.

“The level of concentration had to be very high and I had to give my best, score goals. That’s why the match that was most beautiful of all for me was the 3-1 in Turin, opened with the goal from a free-kick at the corner of Buffon’s goal and closed with a personal brace. We won and dominated and all the Inter people were happy.”

Another game that he highlighted as being one of his favourites was a 3-0 victory over Arsenal at Highbury in 2003, in which he scored the first goal, which was his first for the club.

“Then there is the victory against Arsenal, a historic success in Highbury, opened by my first goal with this shirt and closed by Van Der Meyde and Martins against a very strong team.”

Julio Cruz was never one of the most technically gifted players at Inter but he thinks his ability to play with both feet meant he always got a good amount of playing time.

“Speed has helped me a lot and kicking with both feet, right or left was indifferent to me. For this reason, even if I shared the locker room with great champions, I always had the luck of playing a lot.”

Finally, Julio Cruz passed a comment on Inter’s two current Argentine strikers who are developing a connection.

“Joaquin Correa made a great debut, he is a player who understands the game very well.  Lautaro Martinez has grown up and is showing a lot, I’m happy for them.”
