Inter Milan's Kwadwo Asamoah delighted after first game of the season

Kwadwo Asamoah has expressed his happiness after he came off the bench in Inter Milan's 1-1 draw against Valencia on Saturday.

Asamoah missed the early part of Inter Milan's pre-season training due to his international commitment with Ghana at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Following his country's exit at the Round of 16, the 30-year-old was granted an extended break before joining Antonio Conte's men a fortnight ago.

On Saturday, the versatile midfielder was introduced as a 71st-minute substitute for Dalbert Henrique as they settled for a share of the spoils against Valencia in their final pre-season game.

Mateo Politano's effort from the spot in the 82nd minute cancelled out Carlos Soler's 38th-minute opener for Valencia.

The Ghana international is pleased to have earned some playing minutes at the Mestalla Stadium.

Asamoah will be hoping to play a part when Inter Milan begin their 2019-20 Serie A campaign with a fixture against newly-promoted Lecce on August 26.

"Happy for my first match of the season," Asamoah tweeted.
