Hakan Calhanoglu scores rocket and bags an assist 15 minutes into Inter debut vs Genoa

Hakan Calhanoglu's first 15 minutes for Inter vs Genoa went well

Hakan Calhanoglu made one of the most controversial transfers in recent history this summer as he made the move from AC Milan to Inter Milan on a free transfer.

He was in the starting lineup for his new side in their Serie A opener against Genoa on Saturday afternoon.

And he had a dream start for his new club.

Calhanoglu set up Inter’s opener after just six minutes.



The Turkish midfielder swung in a delicious corner and Milan Škriniar rose highest to head home.


Calhanoglu then turned from provider to goal scorer eight minutes later as he opened his account for his new club in style.

Inter produced a lovely passage of play which ended in the 27-year-old smashing the ball past Salvatore Sirigu from long range.

Pick that one out.

The commentator on BT Sport said he doesn’t think he’ll see a sweeter strike all weekend and we agree. What a way to open your account for your new club.

With that strike, Calhanoglu became the first player to score and assist on his Inter debut since Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2006. That’s not bad company.

There were no further goals as Inter went into the break 2-0 up.

Barring a dramatic turnaround in the second half, Inter will begin the defence of their Serie A title with a routine victory.
