MILAN - This is not a definitive ranking. That would be impossible. It would be impossible to pick just one of these 25 goals as the best, or more noteworthy, or most important. These are 25 goals scored against AC Milan, in the league, with the Rossoneri as the “home” team. 25 gems, 25 moments of incredible joy, of passion, of Inter, of technique, of class. Of power.
It’s just a magical compilation, a trip back forward and back in time, which is certain to bring up some powerful emotions. Our journey starts with a perfect team goal, a feat of footballing geometry that, to this day, makes you shout “Oh what a goal!”. We’re talking about Thiago Motta in 2009, the perfect way to kick off our journey. There are some stunners: Ronaldo with the outside of the boot, Marco Materazzi’s header. There’s Armando Picchi, Sandro Mazzola, Mario Corso and Roberto Boninsegna, who - in spite of the black and white images - transfix you with all of their Interismo and greatness.
There’s Diego Milito, obviously, with his classic Derby-day goal, there’s Maicon. There’s Christian Vieri’s knee. There are goals from two Derby titans, Berti and Stankovic. There’s Cholo Simeone’s grit, there are headers from Serena, Samuel, de Vrij and Lukaku. There are the massive goals from Oriali and Altobelli, those of Di Biagio, Candreva and Ibrahimovic, and those from less expected sources like Branca, Obi and Sukur.
Just have fun. And get a bit emotional.
