Argentinos Abroad: Banega provides reminder of talent with superb free kick & Icardi also on target in Inter win (VIDEO)


Éver Banega has found his place in Inter Milan’s starting eleven under threat in recent weeks with Stefano Pioli preferring Portuguese midfielder João Mário but the Argentinian served up a timely reminder of his ability in Sunday’s 5-1 win away to Cagliari.

The 28-year-old had already delivered a wonderful assist for Ivan Perisic to open the scoring before curling in a perfectly struck free kick to double the lead shortly before half time.

Cagliari pulled one back before the break but Perisic’s second was followed by a Mauro Icardi penalty to pull the Nerazzurri clear.

After his recent suspension, it was Icardi’s 17th Serie A goal of the season, two behind leading scorer Andrea Belotti, who scored a hat-trick for Torino.

The result leaves Inter in sixth but only two points behind Lazio in fourth.
