Inter goal my most important of my career – D'Ambrosio

The Nerazzurri defender believes the continued unbeaten streak – which has included 6-0 and 7-0 wins – shows the club’s recent successes are no mere fluke

Inter wing-back Danilo D’Ambrosio has described his goal in Thursday’s 1-0 win over Dnipro as potentially the most important of his career.

The Nerazzurri were larbouring against 10 men in Kiev until the defender struck with 19 minutes left on the clock to give them all three points in their first Europa League group game of 2014-15.

Inter have started the new campaign in excellent fashion – including a 6-0 thrashing of Stjarnan in the Europa League play-off round and a 7-0 victory over Serie A rivals Sassuolo on Sunday – and D’Ambrosio was pleased Walter Mazzarri’s men were able to maintain their unbeaten streak in Ukraine.

“It was important to play a great game and demonstrate that the triumph with Sassuolo was not random,” the 26-year-old told Mediaset Premium.

“The goal was probably the most important of my career – it is my first goal in Europe. Now that we have won this match, we must look ahead and think about Palermo this weekend. They are going to be a very difficult challenge.”

Inter top Group F ahead of Dnipro, Saint-Etienne and Qarabag – the latter two of whom drew 0-0 on Thursday – and are fourth in the Scudetto race after a draw and a win in their first two games of the domestic season.
