However, despite the abuse directed at him by racist fans, he scored what turned out to be the winning goal in what was a 1-2 win for Inter. Romelu Lukaku's goal ensured that Inter made it 6 points out of a possible 6 and have had a perfect start to the season.
After scoring the penalty Lukaku directed a disparaging look towards the Cagliari fans that had racially abused him moments before. The club that is home to the former Belgian international Radja Nainggolan has a bad reputation when it comes to racism. Other players including Moise Kean, Blaise Matuidi and Sulley Muntari have all suffered racial abuse at the hands of Cagliari fans.
