Stefan de Vrij had a great match in the Milan Derby. The Inter defender discussed his wonderful goal after the match with Sky Sport Italia.

“We are very happy with the victory, with the character we showed in the second half. We did badly in the first half, Milan deserved the lead and we weren’t really ourselves,” the defender told Sky Sport Italia.

“However, we came out fighting after the break, immediately scored two goals and you could see that our mentality had changed.

“We ran into difficulties, but we proved our strength not just in our football, but also our character. These are all talented players, but a game like this requires something else, determination, hunger, character, and we proved we’ve got those elements too.”

“I realised afterwards that it was in the goal! I saw the ball coming, when I turned around, I saw the ball was in the net and it was an incredible feeling. I scored in the derby last year too, these are memories you will have forever.”

The win over AC Milan put Inter at the top of the Serie A table. They’ll be faced with a tough matchup against Lazio next weekend to attempt to further bolster their slight lead in the table.
