Joaquin Correa led Inter Milan to a second consecutive Serie A win in his first appearance for the club when the champions came from behind to beat Verona 3-1 on Friday.

Correa made a towering header in the 83rd minute, marking a dream debut for Inter since his move from Lazio.

Ivan Ilic had given Verona an early lead with a coolly taken chip, as Inter struggled to continue their impressive 4-0 win over Genoa in the opening weekend.

But Inzaghi’s side got out of the blocks in the second half and equalized almost immediately, Lautaro Martinez headed home from close range after being tapped on a throw-in.

Martinez’s compatriot Correa then completed the comeback with a new header and gained a lot of power when he came across a cross from former Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian.

There was still time for one more goal from the Argentinian, who shot into the bottom corner from just outside the penalty area in extra time.
