Pre-season: UCLA Bruins 2-2 Inter


Materazzi, Stankovic score Nerazzurri's first goals of season. Next up: Club America on Sunday

LOS ANGELES - Inter were held 2-2 by UCLA Bruins in their first outing of the pre-season in LA. New signings Milito and Thiago Motta made their first outings for the Nerazzurri, while youngsters Belec, Krhin, Obi and Destro all played a part for Mourinho's team.

After first-half chances for Muntari and Vieira the college side took the lead shortly before half time when Carasco nodded in a corner, but the teams were on level terms six minutes after the restart when Materazzi rose in the box to head home Mancini's corner.

Stankovic met a Mancini cross and headed into the top corner for Inter's second goal midway through the second half, but the home side equalised with twenty minutes remaining when Griffin latched on to a through ball from Munoz and held off a challenge before sliding past Orlandoni.

New signing Milito went close to a third goal when his header bounced off the outside of the post.

José Mourinho's team face Mexican outfit Club America at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto on Sunday evening in their first match of the World Football Challenge.
