Forlan continues Internacional goal spree

Feb 10 2013, 3:32am CST | by

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 10 (IANS) Uruguay striker Diego Forlan continued his impressive early season form with a goal each side of half time in Internacional's 3-0 victory over Pelotas in the Brazilian football league.

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 10 — Uruguay striker Diego Forlan continued his impressive early season form with a goal each side of half time in Internacional's 3-0 victory over Pelotas in the Brazilian football league.

Forlan, who only returned to Brazil a day earlier after playing in Uruguay's 1-3 defeat to Spain in Qatar Wednesday, opened the scoring with a first-time left foot finish before adding another by lofting a deft shot over goalkeeper Jonatas Saturday, reports Xinhua.

Having scored just five goals from 19 appearances for Internacional last season, Forlan has now struck thrice in his past two matches in Brazil's Campeonato Gaucho.

"It's different when you have a good pre-season, know your teammates and are playing in your position. It's easier to play your best football," the 33-year-old said.

Internacional coach Dunga offered subtle praise to his star forward, preferring to acknowledge the performance of the entire team.

"Inter has players of real quality," said the former Brazil coach and 1994 World Cup-winning captain. "Those who have been watching us train know what we are working towards. We are trying to get the best out of every player."

FIFA World Cup 2014 Brazil - "Ecuador v France"
James Rodriguez, Keylor Navas, Enner Valencia and Javier Mascherano, we knew you were good, but you weren't supposed to be that good. What is a "surprising player"? It is a pretty vague term and could be used to describe pretty much anyone, from the big money players on their biggest stage yet, to the standout players who finally got out of relative anonymity. The players unknown to the world can surpris ...

Uruguay were stunned in their opening group match losing 3-1 to a squad that had the worst betting odds to win the group. They need a win here or their chances of advancing to the knockout stage will be reduced to almost nil. England are the slim 6-5 betting favorit ...
