Inter Milan defender De Vrij insists character shown for Roma point

Inter Milan defender Stefan de Vrij says they can be happy with the manner of their 2-2 draw with AS Roma.

Roma came back from a Stefan de Vrij header to lead 2-1 through Leonardo Spinazzola and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but Spinazzola's double error gifted Romelu Lukaku a penalty to equalise at the 88th minute.

De Vrij said afterwards, “We came here to put pressure on Juventus and close to within three points. It's disappointing.

“It was an advantage after 14 minutes, which was different from allowing a goal in the final minute. We showed character to get back into it and equalise, then tried to win, but it wasn't enough."
