Calhanoglu on target in Inter shirt

Simone Inzaghi

Inter cancelled their pre-season Florida Cup participation, but Hakan Calhanoglu scored in today’s 4-0 friendly test match against Pro Vercelli.

Simone Inzaghi’s men announced they were pulling out of the tournament in Orlando due to health concerns, as they had been due to fly out tomorrow for the game with Arsenal.

After the Gunners had several positive COVID-19 tests and decided not to travel, Inter also abandoned the trip.

Instead, today former Milan midfielder Calhanoglu got his first goal in the Inter jersey during a 4-0 friendly win over Serie C side Pro Vercelli.

Marcelo Brozovic was also on target, before 20-year-old Simone Mulattieri bagged a brace.

It was described as a kickabout at the end of a joint training session between Inter and Pro Vercelli, so more of a game between ranks than a 90-minute friendly.

The Nerazzurri will open the 2021-22 Serie A campaign against Genoa at San Siro on August 21.
