Argentine international Joaquin Correa had a debut to remember for Inter Milan after he came off the bench to hit a brace on the occasion of his first game for the former European champions. Correa scored two goals to lead the Nerazzuri to a 3-1 away win over Hellas Verona when the two teams met in the league last weekend. His goals ensured that Inter Milan were able to maintain their winning start to the new Italian Serie A season.
New Inter Milan attacker Correa has a record of two goals in eight games for the Argentine national team and he had been called up to the latest squad to prosecute the upcoming World Cup qualifiers for this month. He has a lot of experience in the Italian Serie A having played for both Sampdoria and Lazio. To this effect, it’s not surprising that the attacker has made an instant impression at Inter Milan with the two goals at Hellas Verona at the weekend. Inter Milan had to come from behind to win the game thanks in part to the brace from Correa.
Ivan Ilic gave Verona the lead on 15 minutes as he pounced on the mix-up between Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic and midfielder Marcelo Brozovic. The goal from Ilic gave Verona a 1-0 lead at the halftime interval before Inter Milan scored three goals in the second half to win the game. Argentine international Lautaro Martinez scored the equaliser for the Nerazzuri two minutes into the second half before Correa netted twice in the last seven minutes to win the game for his new team. Correa had come on as a second half substitute for his compatriot, Martinez. Correa was subbed on for Martinez on 74 minutes for his Inter Milan debut and it didn’t take him long to make his mark on his new club.
