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."

Injury and Age Doubts Don't Matter in Man United's Low-Risk Deal for Falcao

Sep 9 2014 3:18pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Signing a player, especially for a large fee, is always a risk. There are no guarantees. His record at AC Milan suggested Andriy Shevchenko would score goals at Chelsea. But he didn't. Fernando Torres scored 81 times in 142 games for Liverpool. But after a £50 million move to Chelsea, he could only manage 45 in 172 appearances. More than £1 million a goal, before wages and bonuses, isn't what you would call value for money. Diego Forlan struggled at Manchester United but found the n ...

Luis Suarez Will See Major Boost from Extra Training with Barcelona

Aug 16 2014 4:54pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Barcelona took a big risk by adding Luis Suarez this summer, but a recent ruling will make his stay with the club much better. Over the past few seasons at Liverpool, the forward proved to be one of the top goalscorers in the world. However, it is impossible to overlook his other actions, which were on display at the World Cup. Playing for Uruguay, Suarez bit Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini, marking the third such incident in his professional career. The 27-year-old player was handed a four-month ba ...
