CHOUTOS, MARTINS GOALS SINK NORWICH
NORWICH - Goals in either half from Lampros Choutos and Obafemi Martins saw the Nerazzurri beat Norwich City 2-0 at Carrow Road and make it three England tour wins out of three.
Inter's first goal was the result of a defence-splitting move in the 32nd minute. Adriano received from Karagounis then fed through for the Greek striker to blast home after timing his run to perfection.
Mancini's men enjoyed the run of play in the opening forty-five and could have taken a bigger lead into the break. Karagounis had a shot cleared off the line in the opening minutes then Adriano had a header from Ze Maria's cross tipped over by Green, who also blocked a low drive by Javier Zanetti before the half was out.
In a Canaries-dominated second period Inter were limited to counter-attacks, Giuseppe Favalli going close when his diagonal shot was stopped by Ward after a devastating move involving the same players who combined for the opening goal. Obafemi Martins made the result safe five minutes from time with an angled shot from the by-line after intercepting a back pass then rounding the keeper.
