PINZOLO - With goals from Coutinho, Cambiasso, Garritano and a hat-trick from Milito the friendly between Trentino and Inter ended 6-0, which was held this afternoon at the Stadio Pineta. In this winning debut, in the first real test of the summer pre-season in Pinzolo, Inter wore red shirts. President Massimo Moratti was also present at the match and on the Nerazzurri bench.
FIRST HALF - First shot, first goal. After only 3 minutes Coutinho was the one to put Inter ahead with a right-footer on the turn from the edge of the box that passed under the legs of a disoriented Fracalossi. Then a pass from Mbaye opened up a chance for the Brazilian attacker to provide an assist for El Principe, who trapped the ball on his chest and fired it past the goalkeeper to double the lead in the 6th minute. A minute later, "Cou" again came close to scoring when he won a loose ball and had a go at goal, only to find Fracalossi ready for him. On 26 minutes Handanovic set into motion a lovely move that saw captain Zanetti hit the post to the left of the goalkeeper. Then it was Milito's turn to hit the woodwork from a corner kick just before Fracalossi's desperate save denied Cambiasso a goal.
In the 28th minute Palacio, who together with Guarin was instrumental in creating Inter's play, saw his effort saved by Fracalossi. With open space in front of him Palacio picked out Coutinho from deep but the Brazilian, shooting on the run, failed to find a way past Fracalossi. A low cross from Guarin in the 40th minute provided Milito with a tap-in; the Argentine's finish marked the second game in a row in which he has scored two goals. Not even two minutes had passed before El Principe bagged his hat-trick, finishing off some lovely interplay between Zanetti and Palacio.
SECOND HALF – After three substitutions for Inter, the second half started with a bang, Travaglia tipping Nagatomo's shot over the bar. On 54 minutes Cambiasso found the net after putting away a rebound (with help from a slight deflection) from Milito's shot, making the score 5-0. A diagonal shot from Garritano in the 78th minute grazed the post. Then Livaja put on a show for the fans a few minutes later with a rabona. In the 86th minute Garritano notched the final goal of the game, thanks to an assist from Nagatomo, to bring the final score to 6-0.
