Inter Milan Win FIFA World Club Cup With 3-0 Win Over TP Mazembe

After Inter defeated Seongnam Ilhwa 3-0 in the semi-final, it seemed like Rafa Benitez's team was beginning to get into it's stride. The display in the final against TP Mazembe was amazing, with Inter Milan scoring three well worked goals.

The first half was torture for the African champions. Inter Milan played 45 excellent minutes in which they scored two beautiful goals. The first was a cool finish by Goran Pandev after being set up with a chipped ball over the defence, and the second was a well placed volley by Samuel Eto'o from the top of the box. Diego Milito should've had two goas to his name, but the Argentine looked useless in his two chances which should've been put away. Nonetheless, Inter dominated kept possession wonderfully with TP Mazembe chasing shadows until halftime arrived.

The second half was more even, with TP Mazembe putting Inter's back-line in difficulty and forcing Julio Cesar to some good saves. But against the run of play, Inter sealed their victory with yet another fantastic goal. A chipped ball over the defence for substitute Biabiany to control, take a touch to lose the Mazembe keeper, and poke it into the back of the net with his left foot. The match finished off with a disappointed TP Mazembe side, and a happy group of Inter players and supporters, glad to see their team claim their fifth trophy this year.
