MILAN - Two hundred children were invited to Inter's game against Genoa game. Cheerful at lunch, enthusiastic in the stands and with a very special post-match meeting: as well as the presents, they also received a visit from the players.
Nerazzurri shirts for everyone. A heartfelt 'Merry Christmas' from Inter for these kids who come from communities, foster homes and children's homes around the city. The annual festive invitation is a long-held Inter tradition started in the sixties during the Grande Inter era - backed by president Angelo Moratti - that has continued ever since.
A moment of immense joy, and those handing over the shirts got something even more precious in return: a huge smile. The way it should be at this time of year. Merry Christmas!
