Inter Score Historic Serie A Goal Against Okoye In Victory Vs Udinese

Maduka Okoye was in goal for Udinese who conceded a stoppage time goal to lose 2-1 at home to Inter Milan in the Serie A on Monday night.

Inter had to come from behind to secure the win as they continue their push to land the league title.

Lazar Samardzic had given Udinese the lead before second half goals from Hakan Calhanoglu and Davide Frattesi secured the three points.

According to OptaPaolo, Çalhanoğlu’s goal means Inter became the first team in Serie A history to score in each of the first 31 matches played in a single season.

Inter, on 82 points, are runaway leaders while Udinese are in 15th place on 28 points, just two points from the relegation zone.

Udinese opened the scoring on 40 minutes as Samardzic’s shot was immediately deflected, but a confusing stop from Denzel Dumfries allowed the ball to sail past Yann Sommer into the back of the net.

Only minutes into the second half Inter thought they’d equaliser through a Carlos Augusto header following a free kick, but play was stopped after the flag is raised.

Following a lengthy VAR check, the goal was chalked off for an apparent flick from the offside Lautaro.

It didn’t take long for Inter to finally equalise which came in the 53rd minute after Okoye got an interception incredibly wrong, fouling Marcus Thuram to gift Inter a penalty.

Calhanoglu stepped up and made no mistake, tying it up for Inter 1-1.

In the 94th minute, the Nerazzurri’s got the winner after a great low shot from Lautaro was finger tipped onto the post by Okoye and bounced out.

The ball was then met by a sprinting Frattesi, who smashed it home to make it 2-1 for the league leaders.

  • it’s just time to bring Maduka Okoye back for more competition within the sticks….

    Encouraging performance from Maduka. He was desperately unfortunate to concede that 2nd goal.
    As for the first goal he conceded, that perhaps could have been avoided if he was calmer.
    But overall, good performance. He kept Udinese in the game with some spectacular saves.
    He is definitely in the frame for a call up to the SE, with this form he has been showing of late.
    Nwabali looks like he has a battle on his hands keeping his jersey. That’s great for the team!

    Nwabali definitely has a battle to keep his number one shirt. Uzoho has already been tied to the bench. Now let’s see how Okoye can compete with Bobo. I like the competition it’s really good for the team. At least I believe we have two solid goalkeepers, but Okoye still needs to prove himself in a SuperEagles shirt. He was fantastic against Inter and has been the revelation of the season according to the Italian commentator. Goalkeeping problem seems to be finally solved. Thanks to Peseiro for ushering me needed competition. 

    FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE.

      If Okoye can ‘compete’ with Nwabali? Is this a joke?
      Nwabali cannot clean Okoye’s boots at the moment.
      Okoye is Nigeria’s best keeper at the moment, by a country mile!
      You Nigerians always love deceiving yourselves.

        What have you being smoking. Nigeria’s best that ran away like a coward. Please let him stay where he is, because we don’t know when he will break down again and start seeking permission to be excused from the team.

        Hehehehe…Benakay, imagine mentioning Nwabali in the same sentence with a one-time best GK in the Dutch league who walked into the Seria A and displaced Silvestri by midseason and is already currently being rated highly in Italy as we speak.

        Nwabali should win Best GK in South Africa League first, then we can start a conversation.
