Inter Milan goalkeeper Yann Sommer feels that the Nerazzurri showed their a great team despite struggling away to Real Sociedad.
The 34-year-old reacted to the 1-1 draw in an interview with Amazon Prime, via FCInterNews.
Sommer was perhaps one of the only Inter players who really showed his quality in team’s Champions League opener.
The Swiss international made several sharp saves.
And he had to. La Real piled on the pressure for the majority of the match, and created a number of chances to call the Inter keeper into action.
But, apart from the early opening goal which he could do little about Sommer, was equal to every shot that he faced.
And this proved to be vital for the Nerazzurri.
With the scoreline remaining at 1-0, Inter always had a tangible hope of getting a result.
Late in the match, Nerazzurri captain Lautaro Martinez popped up with an equalizer. But in truth, the captain will have had his goalkeeper to thank for everything he did to make sure that the equalizing goal was even possible.

For his part, goalkeeper Sommer said that “I’m very happy with this point.”
“We played a dreadful first half,” he continued. “But then we had some chances in the second half.”
“In the Champions League you face top teams. There are a lot of things we have to work on, but the most important thing is that we brought this point home.”
The Swiss then said that “I’m very happy with how we changed things in the second half.”
“We still have work to do but this point is important.”
Sommer said that “This team is great, and we showed it tonight by taking a point from a match where it didn’t go well for us.”
“This shows what character we have, our ability to improve situations in matches,” he contended.
And Sommer also added that “I’m very happy to be here.”
