Inter beat Roma 8-7 on penalties


Nerazzurri claim their fourth Italian Supercup

MILAN (Reuters) - Inter beat AS Roma 6-5 on penalties to win the Italian Super Cup on Sunday following a 2-2 draw in Jose Mourinho's first competitive game in charge of the Italian champions.

Sulley Muntari, a new signing from Portsmouth, gave Inter the lead after 18 minutes of his official debut after Maicon's cross had been deflected on to the bar by Roma defender Philippe Mexes. Last season's Cup winners Roma, playing their first game since the death of club president Franco Sensi last Sunday, levelled on 59 minutes at the San Siro when Daniele De Rossi lashed a stunning drive into the top corner from 30 metres.

Inter substitute Mario Balotelli thought he had snatched victory with a cool finish on 83 minutes but Roma forced a second equaliser in the final minute of normal time when the ball seemed to come off Mirko Vucinic and Inter's Dejan Stankovic. After a dull extra time, Juan missed the crucial spot kick in the shootout to give Inter victory before they start the defence of their Serie A title at Sampdoria next Saturday. (Reuters)
