The Senegal international scored a brace and assisted with another to help Luciano Spalletti’s men return to winning ways

Inter Milan forward Keita Balde has talked up of the importance of their 3-0 victory over Frosinone in Saturday’s Italian Serie A game.

Luciano Spalletti’s men returned to winning ways - after suffering a humiliating defeat to Atalanta last time out - with the Monaco loanee opening his goal account in style with a brace and an assist.

And the 23-year-old who missed Senegal’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying tie with Equatorial Guinea has praised the ‘brilliant’ performance by his side.

"It was very important to win today after what happened in Bergamo, it was a good night for me and the whole team," Balde told club website.

"It’s important for a player to have the trust of his coach and teammates, I worked well seeing as I didn’t go on international duty and this could be seen today. We were together and focused from the start to get the win.

"We’re a great team, a brilliant group. Those who are unavailable give their support from afar. It was one of the most emotional goals of my career, to score at San Siro in front of our fans was wonderful.

"By working together, we can go far. It won’t be easy in the Champions League against Tottenham Hotspur because they’re a good team. But, we are Inter and we’ll go there with our heads held high and without fear."

Balde will hope to continue the blistering form when Inter travel to Wembley to take on Tottenham Hotspur in Wednesday’s important Champions League fixture.
