Lukas Podolski Germany

The Swiss international netted his first goal for the Italian giants in their 2-0 win over Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia.

Both Arsenal loanee Lukas Podolski and fellow January acquisition Xherdan Shaqiri started for Inter last night in the 2-0 victory over Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia.

The Swiss international managed to score his first goal for the Nerazzurri, breaking the deadlock after 71 minutes at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Podolski was at the heart of the strike, setting up the Bayern Munich loanee with a neat back heel, as can be seen below.

Mauro Icardi went on to score Inter’s second late in the affair, while both Pawe Wszolek and Nenad Krsticic were sent off for the visitors.

Podolski has now started three games in all competitions for Inter and will be relishing the opportunity to play more regularly than he was offered at the Emirates Stadium.

The Germany international’s future is a point of contention, with it remaining to be seen where he will play his football next season.
