Eto'o enjoyed Inter Milan experience in Beijing

Samuel Eto'o was pleased with his performance for Inter Milan in their Super Cup defeat to Lazio.

"I am satisfied with the way we played, we always controlled the tempo, kept the ball and lifted the team. We created many scoring opportunities," he told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"The goal was good, but it would have been more important to win. Having said that, a goal never hurts one's confidence. If we always play the way we did against Lazio, I hope to score many more and I'm having fun with Inter.

"To score more I need to learn the new tactical movements, because this is a very different way to how I am used to playing."

The former Barcelona striker has forged an intriguing partnership with fellow summer signing Diego Milito.

"Before Saturday we had only played together for 35 minutes against Monaco, so our rapport can only improve," shrugged Eto'o.

"I am sure we will get along well, because already in that first game it was clear we combine a lot, try to synchronise our movements and realise which space to go in to.

"I hope we can be the strongest partnership in Serie A, but it will go well with the other strikers too, as we saw against Lazio how important Mario Balotelli and David Suazo can be."
