A beautiful header goal from Mauro Icardi wasn’t enough to secure Inter’s qualification to the Round of 16 stage of this season’s Champions League. It finished 1-1 between the Nerazzurri and PSV Eindhoven at the Meazza. Here's what Luciano Spalletti said following tonight’s match: "We are bitterly disappointed with the result, it hurts for all of us. It’s also tough to take for our fans."
"This match is the most important one since I’ve been here and it represents the next step that follows on from Lazio vs. Inter on 20 May. Since I’ve been here, we’ve got the points and put in the performances that we needed.
"Spalletti is a great coach, if you ask him to win he can not do it because he can not work miracles, he's not Harry Potter. Last year they went to the Champions League, where they are doing very well, they could also qualify and they are third in the league."
After the 2-2 away draw against Roma, Luciano Spalletti’s Inter are set for another tough fixture on the road. Inter will take on Juventus on 7 December away from home at Turin at
In a recent interview with Sky, Steven Zhang spoke about Inter and the Serie A table. He stated, "realistically I hope Inter will finish at least second but why not think of something more? I’m always confident.”
As the Roma match came to an end, I didn't know what to think of this team. As an optimistic Interista, I thought there were moments in the match where we showcased our brilliance, our defense is getting better, we are able to come out playing from the back and for a good part of the match we controlled the ball as we pleased.
