Milito scores winner as Inter edge Al Hilal


Over 60,000 fans watch Nerazzurri take on Saudi outfit as Nawaf Al-Temyat bids farewell to football

RIYADH (Saudi Arabia) - Over 60,000 fans packed the splendid King Fahd International Stadium as Inter kicked off 2010 with a 1-0 victory over Al Hilal in a friendly match to celebration the retirement from football of Asian football star Nawaf Al-Temyat.

José Mourinho, who met his fellow countryman and Saudi Arabia national team coach José Peseiro before kick-off, named a 4-3-3 formation to face the Saudi Arabian side, with Julio Cesar in goal; Giulio Donati, Lucio, Marco Materazzi and Davide Santon in defence; Patrick Vieira, Rene Krhin and Dejan Stankovic in midfield; and Mancini, Samuel Eto'o, and Alen Stevanovic in attack.

Star of the show Nawaf Al-Temyat, who saw a powerful left-footed shot fly just wide of Julio Cesar's post before half time, came off to a standing ovation in the 54th minute, receiving the compliments of Al Hilal tactician Eric Gerets and Inter coach José Mourinho.

Diego Milito came off the bench to net Inter's winner five minutes from time. Taking advantage of a double error by the Al Hilal defence, Il Principe created space for a right-footed shot and fired past Alotaibi from the edge of the box.
