Ghanaian international Kwadwo Asamoah played full throttle for Inter Milan as their run of seven successive league wins was ended by a 4-1 defeat to Atlanta.

Hans Hateboer put Atlanta ahead after eight minutes, but  Mauro Icardi levelled from a penalty two minutes after the restart but it was only a brief and ill-deserved reprieve for Inter.

Gianluca Mancini headed in from an Ilicic free kick to put Atalanta back in front after 62 minutes and Berat Djimsiti scored a similar goal in the 88th minute to ensure that justice was done.

Gomez scored Atalanta's fourth in stoppage time seconds after Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic had been sent off for a second bookable offence.

The defeat left Inter third in Serie A with 25 points, six behind leaders Juventus who were at AC Milan later on Sunday.

Asamoah’s next assignment is international duty as he has been called up for Ghana's 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia on November 18.
