No goals or assists, but a great substitute from Romelu Lukaku. The Red Devil wants the harvest and can already put the Italian Cup on his list of honors.
Decorating his comfort, that’s what Romelu Lukaku is all about these days. “I am jealous of Thibaut Courtois’ memorabilia,” says the Red Devil in his soon-to-be-released documentary “One for All.” While waiting for the main course on June 10 in Istanbul – the Champions League final against Man City – the Red Devils got their chance in the Coppa Italia final against Fiorentina on Wednesday night.
Lukaku again started off the bench. Just like in the European semi-final against AC Milan and in the Copa Cup against Juventus. As a substitute for Dzeko-Lautaro, Simone Inzaghi’s regular double in the most important matches, despite Romelu’s six league goals in five league matches.
The evening couldn’t start worse for Lukaku and Inter. In the third minute, Nico Gonzalez fired La Viola into the lead. Big rum swings into the stash. But before the break, Inter set the record straight. Dzeko fouled one-on-one with Terraciano, who set his friend Lautaro at the Olimpico on fire. With two goals, the right man completely turned the tide…and Lukaku was well on his way to reaping the harvest after titles with Anderlecht and Inter, and the Club World Cup and FA Cup with Chelsea.
Inter were overtaken after the break. Inzaghi intervened in the hour. Number 90 was on the board, much to the delight of the Nerazzurri, who traveled with him. Lukaku got half an hour, who in the 66th minute shot from distance – right with Terracciano’s fists. Moments later, Gosens forgot to complete a smash hit solo for “Big Rom”. “Vintage Lukaku,” the ESPN commentator was excited after the Red Devil’s rise to power.
Inter groaned until the absolute final stage. Lukaku pulled and pulled, not getting an excellent opportunity to kill the match. Without a problem, Internazionale crossed the finish line at the end of the first season.
Lukaku might add a trophy to his very empty trophy cabinet after Wednesday night. and whether the cup held a lot of meaning for him. “We have many more goals than in the Champions League,” he recalled about the cup final in a conversation with VTM News. It can already be marked on the mug. Although Istanbul will be a different story in about two weeks.
