Mauro Icardi and Champions League, it was truly love at first sight
There are evenings that enter into history, which closes a cycle and marks the new beginning of a new era. And then there are moments so intense, full of meaning, that seem endless and they leave you with a feeling of omnipotence. Six years of chasing it in Italy, with so many goals and a few bad days. And three months to imagine it every night before falling asleep. Then finally that day comes, the day of great meaning, one that has been so desirable that one does not know what to expect because there are no images that will ever be equal to experiencing it first hand.
Mauro Icardi and the Champions League, a story of long courtship that became love at first sight. Signed by the volley from the outside the box which is a rare commodity in the Nerazzurri captain’s repertoire: only 5 goals out of 108 with Inter are from the distance (outside the box). In short, to make his first night among the stars unique, Maurito spared no expense, he wore the best suit and gave over 64 thousand fans a moment of magic, paying homage to them with a pearl of rare beauty. “It was a spectacular night - said Icardi - and the fans were the extra man, really fantastic.”
