Inter draw pleases Twente's Tiendalli

BY foxsports • September 15, 2010

A fierce free-kick from Theo Janssen and an own goal by Diego Milito put the Dutch side on course for an unlikely win after Wesley Sneijder had given Inter the lead. But Samuel Eto'o brought the Italians level when he struck just before half-time. A draw against last year's winners, though, was a very impressive start for Twente. Tiendalli told Twente's website: "A point against Inter is always good but maybe more would have been possible. "The organisation was good and we played well. "Before the game no one thought we would even take a point. On the pitch I felt we could win. "We did not focus on Inter too much. We wanted to show our own strength and where possible hurt Inter. I think we performed well. "What does the say about FC Twente? We have a good team and showed we can play football properly. This gives us confidence for the coming games in the Champions League." Denny Lanzaat, who was making his Twente debut after joining from Feyenoord, added: "This contest was great to experience. "Beforehand you hope for one point, but during the game you secretly hope for more. That did not happen but the style of play was very positive."
