Wing-back Denzel Dumfries changed the game when he came on against Venezia in yesterday evening’s Serie A clash, and he was decisive for the Nerazzurri’s late winning goal.
This according to Italian news outlet L’Interista, who note that the 25-year-old unanimously received positive grades for his impact from the bench in the player ratings for the match across Italian media.
Matteo Darmian was preferred to Dumfries on the right in Simone Inzaghi’s starting eleven for yesterday’s clash, and the 32-year-old’s cross was vital to the Nerazzurri’s first-half equalizer despite an overall inconsistent display.
However, Inzaghi decided to introduce Dumfries during the second half to give the team something different down the right, and the coach’s faith was rewarded by an energized performance by the Dutchman who is really finding form in an Inter shirt.
Dumfries capped off his display with a lovely lofted cross from which Edin Dzeko headed home to rescue the three points, and he was given 6.5/10 scores across the board from Italian media for his cameo.
