Romelu Lukaku made a shocking scene.
Inter Milan lost 0-1 to Fiorentina in the 28th round of Italian Serie A in the 2022-23 season held at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan, Italy at 1:00 am (Korean time) on the 2nd. With this, Inter Milan failed to pursue the lead, staying in third place with 16 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses (50 points).
Inter Milan used a 3-5-2 formation. The two tops were built by Joaquin Correa and Romelu Lukaku. The midfield consisted of Henrik Mkhitarian, Marcello Brozovic and Nicolo Varela, with wingbacks Robin Gojens and Denzel Duppris. The back three was paired with Alessandro Bastoni, Francesco Acervi and Matteo Darmian, and the goalkeeper gloves were worn by Andre Onana.
A conceded goal in the 8th minute of the second half brought him to his knees. In Fiorentina’s corner kick situation, Artur Cabrau fired a header. Goalkeeper Onana parried it with his hand, but Giacomo Bonaventure shook the net with a header shot again.
Prior to that goal, Inter Milan missed a crucial scoring opportunity. In the 4th minute of the second half, Bastoni, who received a through pass, raised a grounder cross from the outside of the penalty box toward the goal. At this time, Lukaku, who was rushing in, was a no-mark chance, and only his feet were lightly touched. However, his left-footed shot was completely missed and missed the goal. He didn’t even go near the goal.
Lukaku himself must have been shocked as well, so he bent down and stared at the ground. And he blamed himself with a bewildered expression. Bastoni, who gave away the cross, collapsed as his legs gave out.
Italy’s ‘Football Italia’ highlighted the scene, saying, “Lukaku made the worst mistake in his career.” He added comments from Italian journalist Nima Rudsari. Rudsari wrote: “It’s really embarrassing. Professional footballers don’t miss this. It’s shocking.”
Britain’s ‘Give Me Sports’ evaluated,메이저놀이터 “Inter Milan striker Lukaku created an embarrassing moment against Fiorentina. He missed an opportunity that was almost like scoring, and it was a shocking mistake.”
Meanwhile, Lukaku moved on loan from Chelsea to Inter Milan ahead of this season. His contract was for one season and no full transfer clause was inserted. An additional provision (team performance) was added to the rent of 8 million euros (approximately 11 billion won), and it was agreed that Inter Milan would bear all of Lukaku’s reduced weekly wage.
