Kwadwo Asamoah shines as Inter pip Empoli 1-0

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah was in action for Inter Milan as they recorded a narrow away win over Empoli in the Italian Serie A.

 Inter Milan needed a second-half goal from Keita Balde to earn a hard-fought win away to lowly Empoli in Serie A on Saturday.

The Spanish-born Senegalese international met Sime Vrsaljko's low cross with a first-time shot on the turn in the 72nd minute as Inter reached the halfway mark of the championship with 39 points, 14 behind leaders Juventus.

It was Inter's third 1-0 win in their last four league matches, although they performed in fits and starts and needed a good save by Samir Handanovic from Miha Zajc to prevent Empoli going ahead at the start of the second half.
