Ivan Perisic showed why Manchester United are so keen to take him to Old Trafford with a stunning assist and Eder scored twice as Inter defeated Bayern Munich 2-0 in the International Champions Cup.
The Croatia international showcased his talent with a sensational cross that saw Eder double his tally on the half hour with the striker having opened the scoring after eight minutes in Singapore.
It was the high point of a solid display from Perisic and the overall performance will provide Inter fans with hope that they can improve from a miserable campaign last season. Not only did Inter look dangerous going forward, most pleasing might have been the performance of Miranda and Skriniar at the back.
With Bayern looking sluggish from the onset, Inter upped the ante early on with winger Antonio Candreva looking dangerous on the right flank.
With nine minutes gone, Candreva raced down the wing before placing a delightful cross for Eder, who readjusted his position to find the net with a stooping header.
The 30-year-old’s second goal on the half-hour mark was more casual. He strolled into the box and nodded home a terrific cross from Perisic, while the Bayern defence looking uncharacteristically static.
Speaking to the media after the game, Eder gave credit to Spalletti’s influence on the team since his appointment.
“He is a great trainer and has had a lot of impact on the team,” said Eder.
Next up for Inter is a match against English champions Chelsea on Saturday in their final ICC fixture.
