Midfielder Kristjan Asllani can still remember the experience of scoring his first ever goal for Inter Milan this season.

The 22-year-old spoke to Italian outlet VTrend, looking back on one of his most special moments in a Nerazzurri shirt so far.

Asllani is currently in his second season at Inter.

And it has been another campaign of steady growth from the Albanian international, rather than really bursting into the first team.

Asllani has gotten his opportunities during the campaign.

But these have come from the bench more often than in the starting eleven.

However, Asllani can certainly say that he’s left his mark on the season as Inter look to be marching towards the Serie A title.

The young former Empoli midfielder put in a mature display to help Inter to a 1-0 win away to Fiorentina in January, in a match where Hakan Calhanoglu was absent through suspension.

And when Calhanoglu was injured at the end of last month, Asllani filled in adeptly.

Kristjan Asllani Emotionally Recalls First Inter Goal Vs Genoa

Asllani’s overall performances against the likes of Lecce, Genoa, and Atalanta were more than up to the standard that Inter needed from him.

But the undeniable highlight for the player personally was finding the back of the net for the first time while wearing a Nerazzurri shirt.

This came against Genoa, in a 2-1 home win.

And it was no ordinary goal. Asllani’s run from deep midfield and finish showed perfect timing, composure, and technique.

Moreover, it was a very important goal. Asllani broke the deadlock in a very tough match against an aggressive Genoa team.

The Inter defender looked back, “Hearing the role of 75,000 people in the stands and seeing all the love from my teammates and the ones who came off the bench to hug me was incredible.”

Asllani called the goal celebration “A truly indescribable feeling.”

“I was feeling the weight of not having scored in two years since joining Inter,” the Albanian admitted.

“Then when I saw the ball go into the net, it was like I didn’t understand anything anymore.”
