Berretti: Inter, Italian champions

ZINGONIA – Having got past Napoli, last year’s title winners,
Sergio Zanetti’s Inter side have beaten Atalanta in the final over two
legs. The home leg finished 3-0 at the Centro Sportivo Giacinto
Facchetti, while the Nerazzurri won today’s second leg 4-3 after a crazy and emotional
game, complete with a goalfest in the second half (6 of the 7 goals were
scored in the second period). Inter therefore win the Juniores Berretti
title for the fourth time.

The text commentary

2 – Dalle Vedove is quickly off his line to thwart Intrieri following Agazzi’s pass

the flank. His cross is chested back calmly by Djibo to Zanotti

8 – Gabbianelli takes the game’s first corner but the home defence clear

10 – The side from Bergamo win a free-kick. Benassi is forced to
concede a foul in midfield. Agazzi dinks it in towards the big men but
the ball goes astray

11 – Inter go again and begin to test Zanotti

14 – A good chance for the hosts. Praprotnik combines with Agazzi,
but the former’s shoot goes wide of Dalle Vedove’s right hand post

gets the return before weaving his way into the box but the chance goes begging

20 – Praprotnik goes for goal from the edge of the box but his shot is weak and off target

post, Djibo hits the rebound and Dalle Vedove turns it away for a corner

27 – Guglielmotti brings down Intrieri on the edge of the box,
Agazzi strikes the ball but his shot is way off target

30 – D’Amico is rightly awarded a yellow card for his foul on Garrittano

area. Djibo shoots and the ball finds Marcarini on the six-yard line who
smashes the ball past the helpless Dalle Vedove

an angled finish

59 – Marcarini equalises less than a minute later as he taps in after Dalle Vedove beats the ball out
