Icardi: Inter focused for ‘small’ Empoli

Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi says they can't afford to ease up from their win over Juventus as they prepare to take on Empoli at Stadio Carlo Castellani on Wednesday.

The Nerazzurri enjoyed a surprise 2-1 win over Juve on Sunday, in which the Argentine forward scored the equaliser, and he is determined not to slip up in midweek against less-fancied opposition.

"We're ready for this match," he told Inter Channel. "It won't be easy though, because the Tuscans play good football.

"We want to do well against every team though, we're focused and we have to respond against the so-called 'small' teams too. We continue like this, with the same will to win."

Inter are currently sixth in the Serie A standings, having recorded back-to-back victories following a slow start to their domestic campaign.
