PARMA - "All Oba needs is a goal," said Roberto Mancini in Tuesday's pre-match news conference. And Oba Martins obliged as Inter began their defence of the Coppa Italia with a 1-0 win against Parma in Wednesday's round of sixteen first leg at the Tardini.

The Nigerian striker netted the winner in the 74th minute to score his first Nerazzurri goal since the 1-0 Serie A home victory over Fiorentina on 25 September.

Meeting Mihajlovic's left-wing corner at the near post, Martins beat a stranded De Lucia with an unstoppable header then celebrated his return to scoring in typical fashion with a series of crowd-pleasing somersaults.

The return leg at the Giuseppe Meazza has been slated for 11 January 2006, but could be moved to suit television schedules.
