Spalletti Relieved As Inter Go Through

Luciano Spalletti praised the character in his Inter Milan side after they hammered Benevento 6-2 in the Coppa Italia. There was the potential for there to be a cup shock but Inter were professional as Mauro Icardi scored after three minutes before Antonio Candreva and Lautaro Martinez each notched braces.
Dalbert also found the net, much to the delight of Spalletti. “I told [Benevento coach Cristian] Bucchi after the final whistle that he ought to be proud of that performance,” Spalletti said on Inter TV. “When we went 4-0 up, they could have just given up and our attitude, for a few minutes, was that the game was over. But they tried to stay competitive, got stuck into us and tried to win the ball back. “However, we rose to the challenge and managed to restore our advantage. This was a proper game, a tough one. Credit goes to Benevento for that. “My players showed themselves very professional in the way they worked during the week. They were ready when called upon. “There is always a risk of a drop-off in quality in these games. You risk getting shown up and embarrassed. This time I’m happy. “The players have shown the progress that’s been made in terms of consistency. They’ve gradually learned that you’ve got to give everything in every game, no matter the opponent.”
