Mauro Icardi is two goals away from another milestone: 110 goals in Inter shirt. That one against Tottenham...
After the goal against Tottenham, Mauro Icardi is only two goals away from another fantastic milestone wearing the black and blue colors of Inter: 110 goals. Certainly, the Argentinian hopes to reach it as soon as possible starting Saturday night against his former club Sampdoria, just to close out an extra ordinary week. All essential elements to make the foundation even more solid for new contract discussion.
Anyway, his goal on Tuesday night will stay carved in the mind of Inter fans for many many years to come. The paradox is that Maurito should not have been there in that position for Asamoah’s cross because he is used to moving in the penalty area, to attack the opposing goal, to “burn” the opponents time and time again using the speed of the cross and his ability to coordinate in a fraction of a second.
In that situation, he found himself late to join the attack and as a result, Icardi transformed Asamoah’s invitation into a masterpiece to be exhibited in an art gallery. Throwing the body downwards, lowering it with his left shoulder and hitting the ball on the volley to the bottom left corner, sending San Siro into delirium: Maurito is proving once again that he is not only top player and captain of Inter, but of the entire fanbase.
