Federico Dimarco and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have won rave reviews for their performances in Inter Milan’s Serie A win over Udinese.

Today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

Inter may have had to wait until the dying minutes to take three points against Udinese yesterday.

But that did not mean that the performance prior to that point had been subpar.

Far from it, the Nerazzurri looked like a well-oiled machine as they dominated possession and moved the ball around swiftly.

The match proved to be a showcase for some of Inter’s most technically proficient players.

And in the view of the Gazzetta, two Nerazzurri players in particular sparkled.

Federico Dimarco & Henrikh Mkhitaryan Sparkle In Inter Win Vs Udinese

Wingback Dimarco may not have scored or assisted a goal. But the 26-year-old did just about everything else.

Carlos Augusto would often push up from the back three to hold the width on the left flank.

This would allow Dimarco to drift into the centre of the pitch. At times the Italian international was playing directly off of the striker.

And Dimarco’s deft first touch and speed of thought allowed him to link the midfield and attack time and again throughout the first half.

The 26-year-old may be best known for his pinpoint crosses and stellar individual goals.

But even the subtler side of Dimarco’s game can produce plenty of shining moments.

The same is true of former Manchester United, Arsenal, and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mkhitaryan.

The 35-year-old had an excellent first half. He produced numerous feints and clever touches to take Udinese players out of the game.

Mkhitaryan did not score or assist a goal. But he would have been worthy of one with the creativity that he showed.

Moreover, Mkhitaryan also had an absolutely vital block after a lung-bursting run back to his own penalty area, just before being taken off as a substitute.
