MILAN - Wesley Sneijder reflected on his first goal for the Nerazzurri in an interview with Inter Channel after Saturday's 2-1 win over Udinese. "It was a difficult match and Udinese confirmed they are a good team, but we were stronger and the important thing was to win the three points," said the Dutch midfielder, who sealed victory deep in injury time. "I'm dedicating my first goal to my girlfriend, who is usually here, but she couldn't be here today because of work.
"We're all very happy with the victory. Each one of us will join our respective national teams now and it's nice to go into these games with this state of mind. I'm very happy with my performance, but even more with the victory of the entire group.
"Italian football? It can reach Spanish football, but there's work to be done. I have played too few matches in Italy to be able to give a proper reply, but I can say that it's a difficult competition and you have to improve every day."
