Calhanoglu and Dzeko are already in command: Inter is very much alive

The Italian champions kick off Serie A beating Genoa with a spectacular 4-0. The new signings started great with the Nerazzurri.


Canceling months of disappointment over the farewells of Conte, Achraf and Lukaku was difficult, but Inter could not have tried in a better way. The Nerazzurri, in their league debut, defeated Genoa 4-0 dominating the match from minute one and showing new faces perfectly adapted to Simone Inzaghi's game, which is already working wonderfully.

The Italian champion took just six minutes to clarify his intentions. Skriniar quickly opened the can with an imperious header from a corner kick from Calhanoglu, who took the reins of the Nerazzurri. The Turk, in 14 ', combined with the other newcomer Dzeko and extended the lead with a whip from the edge of the area that beat the European champion Sirigu.

With 2-0 on the scoreboard, the Milanese slowed down and Genoa began to see something in Handanovic's area. At the front of Ballardini, Yayah Kallon, a 20-year-old striker who conquered Italy with his history, started. He arrived in the country by boat after a long eight-month trip from the Sierra León: "The alternative was to stay there and be a child soldier," he said.The striker was one of the most active, but just before the break he forgave the best opportunity of his own, kicking out only against Handanovic receiving a pass from Badelj.

Inter, at the restart, took command of operations again and became unstoppable. After a goal annulled to Calhanoglu for offside, the 3-0 came in the 74th minute and it was another great news. Vidal, who had jumped onto the field five minutes earlier, pushed an assist between clubs with a heel from Barella, showing that he was also ready to help.The icing on the cake came in minute 88, when the Chilean, with a delicate center, offered the ball that Dzeko converted to 4-0 with a header. It was the Bosnian's first official goal in his new jersey, well deserved after an excellent performance. It will not be the team of Conte, Achraf and Lukaku, but the Italian champion is very much alive. Be very careful not to underestimate it.
