BRESSANONE - Siamo noi, siamo noi, i campioni d'Italia siamo noi. Inter Primavera emulated the first team with a 1-0 win over Sampdoria in the final of the Campionato Primavera - Trofeo Giacinto Facchetti to lift the Under-19 Scudetto for the sixth time.
Sixteen-year-old striker 'Super Mario' Balotelli settled an evenly-balanced clash at the Stadio Comunale in Bressaneon, hitting the winning goal from the penalty spot in the 89th minute after being fouled in the box by Samp defender Rossini.
Fittingly, the the members of Inter's senior youth team were awarded their winners medals by Luca Facchetti, son of the unforgotten and unforgettable Giacinto.
