In a Serie A match last weekend, Inter Milan overwhelmed Sampdoria thanks to goals from Barella, Stefan de Vrij, and Joaquin Correa.

After intercepting a long pass from Alessandro Bastoni, the latter scored his team’s second goal.

Despite having a hit-and-miss season in Serie A, Inter Milan defeated Sampdoria on Saturday night at the Giuseppe Meazza.

The score was started by Stefan de Vrij, doubled by Nicolo Barella, and completed by Joaquin Correa.

The win moved Simone Inzaghi’s team into the top five of the standings, though they are still some distance behind league-leading Napoli, who are still winless.

Despite not being in the European spots, Inter Milan entered the game in excellent form and only needed a victory to put themselves back in the mix.

They enjoyed a successful week, defeating Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League to go to the knockout rounds, and Romelu Lukaku’s comeback from a two-month absence gave them an extra lift.

Italian professional footballer Nicol Barella Cavaliere OMRI (born 7 February 1997) plays midfield for Serie A club Inter Milan and the Italy national team.

He is generally rated as one of the best midfielders in the world.

In the European sports media, Barella is regarded as a young midfielder with a lot of talent and potential.

He won two years in a row between 2012 and 2013 as the best young Italian footballer born in 1997.

Despite his youth, Italian football journalist Mina Rzouki called him an intelligent, talented, and composed midfielder with a wide variety of skills.

After the game, Barella addressed the media and said: “I hit him after the goal, I told him that the ball was struck like that. I told him see, that’s how you do a first touch! I was joking, we always play around and make fun of each other, it’s a great group of lads and we have a lot of fun.”

Romelu Lukaku’s first touch

The critics of Romelu Lukaku’s ball control and first touch have come under fire from the Belgian striker.

When he was still at Manchester United, Lukaku was ridiculed. He had a great start there, but eventually, everything went south and the supporters turned against him.

Then, one of the United team’s most contentious players began to stroke with bad ball control more frequently than on goal.

By the age of 25, Romelu Lukaku had already scored more than 100 goals in the Premier League, making him Belgium’s all-time leading scorer in the league.

Despite being a productive frontman, a sizable portion of United supporters don’t rate him for the same obvious reason the striker makes clear in every game with his first touch. It even inspired a meme.

Belgian analysts have collated Romelu’s touches versus teams, and they are easily accessible on Twitter.

Both Lukaku and his fans are saddened by his laughable poor ball handling. It might not be enough, Ever, despite his insistence that he keeps working on it.
