Lukaku: "Important to have won, confidence on the up"


The striker had his say after his winner in extra time of the Coppa Italia against Fiorentina

FLORENCE - Brought on as a second-half substitute, Romelu Lukaku left his mark on the Coppa Italia; his header in the 119th minute broke Fiorentina's resistance, sending Inter into the quarter-finals (where they will meet AC Milan). This was Lukaku's 51st goal in an Inter shirt - his 17th this season, and first with his head. After the game, the Belgian striker spoke to Rai: "We're happy to have won today. We played against a good team with a great coach. Winning today is great for our confidence."

"We're working on not dropping so deep at certain points of games - we spoke about this after the Roma game. It mustn't happen but we're a young team, which can grow. We really want to improve."

On Sunday's game against Juve: "It will be a tactical game with two in-form teams, who are playing well."
