Joel Obi Stars In Inter 1-0 Win over Prato

–As Vidic debuts for Nerazzurri

Nigerian midfielder Joel Obi provided the assist for Ibrahima Mbaye as Inter Milan pipped Prato by a lone goal in a friendly.

Obi who missed a clear cut chance to give Inter the lead made up for his miss when his corner kick found ex-Livorno man Mbaye who powered home a header for the victory.

The Nerazzurri started out with Walter Mazzarri handing Nemanja Vidic his debut and his traditional 3-5-2 formation with the former Manchester United skipper showing he is learning the ropes of this tactic.

Obi played for 76 minutes before being replaced by Steffe while Vidic only played the opening 45 minutes.

  • This is a welcome news. We need our players to excel in top teams in Europe and other part of the world. I pray Joel Obi to be injury free so that he can be part of the new look Super Eagles. YObo and Osaze have indicated their retirement from international football. Mikel performance is below average. Joel Obi can compliment the effort of Onazi in midfield
