MILAN - Gotcha, Zio! Tonight is a special evening for Javier Zanetti because by taking to the pitch against Roma he has reached "Zio" (Uncle) Giuseppe Bergomi's record of 756 appearances for Inter.
A special commemorative captain's armband has been designed for the occasion: "Zanetti & Bergomi 756 volte nerazzurri" (Zanetti & Bergomi 756 times Nerazzurri). The armband will be auctioned on e-bay with the proceeds going to the PUPI Foundation. Javier and Giuseppe played on the same team 134 times and won the 1998 UEFA Cup together.
