Inter Milan Defeat Seongnam Ilhwa 3-0 In Semi-Final Of FIFA World Club Cup

The Argentine finds his scoring boots
Inter Milan seem to have woken up from their terrible nightmare with a 3-0 win over Asian Champions Seongnam Ilhwa. This win gets Rafa Benitez's team to the final, where they will face African Champions TP Mazembe, which defeated South American Champions Internacional in a shock 2-0 win in the other semi-final.

The match wasn't too difficult for the European Champions, but they were set back in the first minutes when Sneijder received a tough challenge and had to be substituted by Thiago Motta. Although it seems like a simple muscular strain the Dutch midfielder will be missing the final of the tournament. But this setback was truly temporary, with Dejan Stankovic slipping through the Seongnam defence to score in the third minute.

After that Diego Milito set up Inter's captain Javier Zanetti in front of goal with a delightful backheel, and Zanetti coolly volleyed into the bottom corner. In the second half, Diego Milito got his chance to score when Seongnam's keeper saved well from Eto'o's shot, but couldn't keep out Milito's finish from the rebound. While Inter Milan played well, they weren't always creating chances. It's an improvement from their recent performances, but there's room for improvement.

The final between TP Mazembe and Inter Milan will be played on Saturday. I'll certainly be watching it, and I advise you to watch it as well. I'm very interested in seeing how TP Mazembe will play against Inter Milan, and how they plan on scoring goals. Share your comments below!
