Inter Milan match-winner Davide Frattesi feels that the important thing is that the team win matches like this evening’s against Udinese.

The 24-year-old midfielder spoke to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, moments after grabbing his team’s stoppage time winner.

Frattesi has already shown a penchant for coming off the bench for Inter.

Furthermore, the former Sassuolo midfielder has often chipped in with important goals.

And so it proved this evening at the Bluenergy Stadium.

For the second time in 2024, Frattesi scored in stoppage time to give his team a 2-1 victory.

The Italian international had already done so against Hellas Verona at the San Siro. And this time around, he did so away from home, in Udine.

Frattesi showed his lethal instincts as he was the first to react to a curling Lautaro Martinez shot from distance that deflected off the post.

And it would have been hard for the 24-year-old to miss from the position he got himself into.

Frattesi tapped the ball into an empty net to give Inter three more points as they inch closer to the Serie A title.

Inter had looked to be heading in the direction of a draw as stoppage time began.

A point would not have been a disastrous result for the Nerazzurri. However, it would have slowed their momentum, and delayed their prospective title celebrations.

Inter had had the vast majority of possession. And they had been probing for an opportunity to score a decisive second goal for much of the second half.

But without much luck, as there was little in the way of a clinical edge in the penalty area.

Until, that is, Frattesi’s quick thinking in the dying minutes of the match.

The 24-year-old noted that “It’s wonderful to score like that in front of the San Siro. But it was also brilliant here, in front of a lot of our fans.”

He continued that “At halftime in the match against Roma we had already said to oursleves that we would have chances,” looking back to another second half comeback win.

“And so it proved.”

“You can’t always be at 100%,” the Inter midfielder noted. “But the important thing is to win these scrappy matches.”

And of what his goal shows, Frattesi said that “Even the players who don’t play as often are still important.”

“We always work hard in training during the week. We’re a good group.”

“It makes me very happy,” Frattesi added. “Credit to us, and also to our coach. Even the players who don’t play much always get their due.”
