Esteban Cambiasso spoke on Inter Channel about the victory over Hajduk Split in the first leg, third qualifying round of the Europa League. "We played well and what's important is that we followed our game plan. I agree these matches can prove treacherous if you take them too lightly, because you can end up having to chase the game and then you run more risks. But the team had the right attitude, it was a little surprising but we had worked towards this and we managed to pull it off."
Cambiasso had a great chance to score on the Poljud pitch last night, but "it was coming at me fast, I mistimed things by a thousandth of a second and rather than making contact and scoring, the ball continued on its path," said Cuchu, as he spoke about Inter and their experience in European competitions: "For some time now this team has shown that neither the match nor the competition counts; what's important is the jersey we wear and today was a good example of that."
Andrea Stramaccioni was pleased with his Inter team's performance, after just a month of preparation: "We are pleased too. We do have a lot of aspects to improve on but we are just starting now. What pleased us most, and I believe Stramaccioni too, was our approach in our first competitive match after so many friendlies. We knew our opponents had already won a qualifier against Skonto and they already a feel for the competition. That was the greatest risk but fortunately we kept our heads and we'll have to play well again on Thursday."
