Icardi seals late dramatic win for Inter in the Milan derby

October 21, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Nerazzurri skipper scored the only goal in the crunchy derby della Madonnina.

The drama in the dreaded derby della Madonnina endured until the final minutes with Inter Milan keeping it late to snatch all the three points. Despite the Rossoneri managing 15 shots at goal, it was the men in blue and black whose efforts were fortuitously rewarded. The turn of events sparked off a massive uproar of celebration inside the San Siro.

The skipper of the side Mauro Icardi, who impressed throughout the majority of the proceeding, turn up with the decisive header in injury time to beat fierce rivals AC Milan by a lone goal. The win subsequently placed the Nerrazzuri in third place on the league log, reducing the points difference between them and second-placed Napoli to two while bringing the difference with leaders Juventus to six.

Icardi spoke to Sky Italia after the epic encounter and was elated with his side's performance. The 25-year-old forward, who is reportedly on the radar of Real Madrid, subsequently took his tally for the season to six in 11 appearances across all competitions.

"It was a derby and we won it, deservedly," the Argentine declared.

"We had a lot of opportunities, a goal that was disallowed for offside and a ball that hit the woodwork and many other chances.

"We deserved to win and the way we won it makes the win taste even better. Before going away for the international break I said that we have to win this game and today we just had to do in front of this incredible crowd at San Siro.

"For us right now, all we have to do is to just continue on this path.

"Our goal right now is to have continuity, then at the end of the season, we will evaluate everything.

"We are aware of our potential, we are a strong team and we can play against any team."
