Henrikh Mkhitaryan hailed a ‘miracle’ from Romelu Lukaku as Inter Milan defeated Porto 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clαsh.
Lukaku is now playing for the Italian club while he is on loan from Chelsea. On Wednesday night, he came off the bench to score the game-winning goal in the 84th minute. After the victory, he was questioned about his future but insisted that he is only concerned with the present moment.
Mkhitaryan, a former star for Manchester United and Arsenal, praised the contribution that the Belgian international striker made to what turned out to be an important goal for Inter.
Mkhitaryan stated, “That is a really important result because beating a side like Porto is not easy.” This is what he had to sαy about the match. “The game was not pretty, but we are aware that it is not yet over, and we will do all in our power to win the next one as well.”
We are aware that you do not compete in the Champions League on a daily basis, and because of this, we are prepared to step up when the going gets tough. We put in a lot of work and were rewarded for it in the end.
It was a difficult period for [Lukaku], since he had just returned from an ιnjury and then got injured again.
Now he is demonstrating that he is capable of performing miracles. We have high hopes that he will be able to maintain his fitness because he is such an important member of our team, whether he starts the game or not.
Lukaku has scored four goals for Inter this season over 14 matches, and the Serie A club is hoping to keep him at the club despite the fαct that a meeting with Chelsea to discuss his future is scheduled to take place.
After scoring the winning goal in the match against Porto, the 29-year-old player remarked, “[I had] striker’s luck!” You are aware that you must be present at the appropriate time.
