MILAN - Julio Cruz celebrated his first Inter start since returning from injury with two early goals in the Nerazzurri's Champions League victory over Spartak Moscow. Speaking on SkyItalia after the Matchday 3 clash, he said: "We knew only winning counted. It was a difficult game and we found it a bit hard in the second half. But it was important to win all three points and we did. Now we have a fortnight to think about the game against Spartak in Moscow."
Asked if Inter had problems in the second half, the Argentine forward replied: "There are also your opponents on the pitch. Physically they were in very good shape. Perhaps we didn't play the ball like we should have. Recoba? I'm pleased about his good performance. A lot has been said about the Inter strikers in these days. We all did well today. Recoba played a fantastic match just like Adriano did when he came on."
