AC Milan secured an important win away at Udinese on Saturday evening, scoring the winner in the 93rd minute. It was a dramatic affair, in other words, and a few of the Rossoneri players were crucial in the comeback.
Today’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport has taken stock of the player performances (see photo below), and they named Noah Okafor as the MOTM. The Swiss forward was given a 7/10, coming off the bench and scoring the winner with a nice finish.
Matteo Gabbia, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Stefano Pioli were given the same rating. The manager got his substitutions spot on, turning the game around, and the defender made several key interceptions. The Englishman, meanwhile, scored the opening goal of the game.
Mike Maignan, Rafael Leao, Olivier Giroud and Luka Jovic all got a 6.5/10. The latter scored the equalizer with an easy header, being at the right place at the right time, and his striker partner was involved in all three goals.
Theo Hernandez, Yacine Adli and Alessandro Florenzi all passed the tests at 6/10. The full-back made a big mistake on Udinese’s second goal, but he was also involved in two of the Rossoneri’s goals.
Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer and Christian Pulisic, meanwhile, struggled to impose themselves and were only given a 5.5/10 by the newspaper. The worst, however, was Tijjani Reijnders at 5/10 as he couldn’t get control of the ball, losing it in many dangerous situations.
