Forlan continues Internacional goal spree
PORTO ALEGRE, Feb 09, 2013 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
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 on
Forlan, who only returned to Brazil a day earlier after playing
in Uruguay's 3-1 defeat to Spain in Qatar on Wednesday, opened the
scoring with a first-time left foot finish before adding another
by lofting a deft shot over goalkeeper Jonatas.
Having scored just five goals from 19 appearances for
Internacional last season, Forlan has now struck three in his past
two matches in Brazil's Campeonato Gaucho.
"It's different when you have a good preseason, know your
teammates and are playing in your position. It's easier to play
your best football," the 33-year-old said after the match.
Internacional coach Dunga offered subtle praise to his star
forward, preferring to acknowledge the performance of the entire
"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."
