INTER PRIMAVERA REACH CYC QUARTER-FINALS

Nerazzurri beat Man Utd 2-1 to qualify for last eight as Group C winners

MILAN - Inter Primavera came from behind to defeat Manchester United 2-1 in Malacca and qualify for the knockout stage of the Champions Youth Cup as Group C winners.

The Red Devils's Under-19 side, winners against Porto and Boca Juniors in their first two games, took a first-half lead through McCormack who ran on to Barnes' assist before firing past Nerazzurri keeper Vid Belec.

Inter's Portuguese striker Barbosa levelled the match with a brilliant individual effort after the break, and  Gabriele Puccio stunned United minutes later with a spectacular long-range shot that sailed past Woods and in to the bottom corner.
