With Innocent Emeghara debuting in the starting lineup, Siena defeated Inter Milan 3-1. Watch Highlights NOW!
It was all about Innocent Emeghara in Siena's win 3-1 over Inter Milan.
The Nigerian-born Swiss footballer arrived in Siena from Lorient in the French Ligue 1, and was included in the starting lineup for the first time against Inter. He scored the first goal and then managed to generate the penalty kick that would give his team the final goal.
Very weak defending on behalf of the visiting team contributed to the two goals scored in the first half by Siena. The first came through a counter attack after a corner that had been awarded to Inter. Siena recovered the ball and Matteo Rubin ran across the field to throw a pass that debutant, Innocent Emeghara (21') would convert into the partial 1-0 lead for the locals.
The next four minutes of play would see the partial 2-1, result with which the first half would end. Antonio Cassano (22') would score his 6th goal in the league, and find the equalizer from a strike slightly outside the area. Siena reacted, and only three minutes later Alessio Sestu (24') was able to strike freely from outside the area and score a beautiful goal to give Siena the lead.
Ten minutes into the second half Inter's Christian Chivu committed a foul against Emeghara, and was handed a direct red card and a penalty kick in favor of Siena. Alessandro Rosina (55') took the kick and converted the 3-1.
Left with ten men, Inter had no choice but to push forward to try to rescue at least one point, but Siena defended well and took the win in the end.
