Inter Milan captain, Mauro Icardi is confident his side can face anyone, despite an unconvincing start to the domestic season.
The Nerrazzurri came from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1 at the San Siro in their UCL opener.
Icardi and Vecino scored the goals for a struggling Inter, that have only picked four points from four games in the Serie A.
Icardi revelled in the result following a turbulent start to the 2018-19 campaign for Luciano Spalletti’s Inter, who face Sampdoria on Saturday.
“We know we’re a strong team and that we can compete against anyone, we’ve been waiting for this match for three months and it gives us a lot of strength for the league,” Icardi told Sky Italia.
“A match like that, in the Champions League, gives you so much but one game means nothing.
“We have to stay calm, take the good things we’ve done and go to play on Saturday with a different mentality.
“The environment was ugly in these past few weeks, but a game like this gives us confidence. Vecino has popped up like that for two crucial wins, but what’s most important is for Inter to win.”
The win may prove vital for Inter, who also face Barcelona and PSV in Group B.
