This shirt was worn by Ivan Perisic during the Serie A game between Sampdoria and Internazionale which took place in Genova, “Luigi Ferraris” Stadium, on March 18th 2018. Inter defeated Sampdoria 5-0. Perišić started his third Inter season on a high, first scoring and assisting in the opening day of 2017–18 Serie A against Fiorentina, then providing two assists in the away match at Roma as Inter won 3–1, Inter’s first league win at the Stadio Olimpico in nine years. On 8 September, Perišić signed a new contract extension with Inter Milan, keeping him at the San Siro until June 2022. Upon signing, Perišić said, “It’s a special day, it’s certainly emotional and I’m happy after the stress of this summer. Now, we can look forward and I’m only thinking about Inter. After signing, the pitch is the only thing left for me to think about.” His second goal of the season, a late screamer outside the zone against newly promoted SPAL two days later, was his 20th career Serie A goal. Perišić scored his first Serie A hat-trick on 3 December in the 5–0 home win over Chievo. His 100th appearance in all competitions for Inter occurred later on 30 December in the goalless draw versus Lazio on matchday 19.
