The Nerazzurri fell behind by two goals against the French team but showed good resilience by coming back to pick a vital point in Cesena.
Onana, who was on the pitch for eighty minutes was in top form as he denied Aouar’s header from a point blank range in the second half which could have help the visitors regain the lead.
Speaking after the game, Onana expressed joy at having chosen Inter despite interest from Barcelona and Lyon.
“We faced a fearsome opponent and we had courage, confirming that we were “there”. My performance? I feel good and I’m glad I chose Inter. The preparation phase is tough, but we’ll be ready for the start of the championship. The fans? They are very warm and they supported us again this time.”
The 26 year old left Ajax this summer at the expiration of his contract to team up with the Italian giants.

Lukaku returned to Inter from Chelsea after having moved to London last summer for a club record £97.5m fee.
Lukaku was more involved in Saturday’s game as he got more involved in the team’s build up running through the forward lines and interchanging with Lautaro Martinez on occasions.
He was rewarded with a goal in the second half when Federico Di Marco’s inch perfect cross found the head of the Belgian to half the deficit.
