Forlan Returns, Inter Beats Genoa 1-0

| No Comments

Italian soccer club Inter Milan has had a disappointing season up to this point, but with a 1-0 victory at Genoa, the club has finally moved into the top half of the Serie A table, according to
Inter striker and Japanese international Yuto Nagatomo headed in the eventual game-winning goal in the 67th minute, the only goal of the match. Although Inter has four wins in their last five matches, they still remain 10 points behind Juventus and Udinese for the Serie A division lead.
"It was a good game against a team which was very defensive," Inter head coach Claudio Ranieri said. "[Genoa] had its first shot after 80 minutes and then tried everything in the closing stages. It's a little step but it's a good one."
On top of the victory, superstar Diego Forlan returned to action after injuring his leg in a World Cup qualifying match against Paraguay two months ago. Forlan came off the bench with 10 minutes left in full time.
"We'll have Forlan back properly soon," Ranieri said. "And he has a lot of class too."
