Inter and Pirelli, same VALUE: episode 2


Sep 8th 2023

Moments in Nerazzurri history, magic goals that express the unique and special Inter-Pirelli connection



There is a player who, more than anyone else, has been able to represent and personify one of the most often repeated expressions in international sport: "Power is nothing without control". Wesley Sneijder was capable of shooting with both feet and with great force, he scored goals in which the ball looked like it was going to tear through the net. But then in every match, he demonstrated a technical ability and a naturalness with the ball that made him a master of control. His talent in taming the ball and moving it with light-seeming touches had a mystical, almost supernatural energy, as if the trajectories of his passes and shots were remote-controlled. A goal from Wes speaks to this ability. It's the 2010/2011 season, the game against Roma: Maicon assisted from the edge of the area, Wes controlled the ball with his left foot and in an instant, before any defender can get close, sends it flying past the keeper. It's a powerful shot but not necessarily one of his trademark surface-to-air missiles, the trajectory arched into a seemingly hidden corner of the net. This goal, like other goals, evidently came from his control and unique skills.

The relationship between Pirelli and Inter is an special one that has spanned seasons, years, and various football and historic eras. It is one of the longest-lasting partnerships in the game, an exceptional bond that is firmly associated with the iconic actions of eternal champions, from Ronaldo, Javier Zanetti, Toldo, Diego Milito, Maicon and Materazzi through to Lautaro Martinez, Barella, Bastoni and all the Nerazzurri players of today. A journey of shared values, incredible performances and common goals. Inter and Pirelli's story together consists of memorable moments, unforgettable victories, amazing emotions. With "Inter and Pirelli, Same VALUE", we retrace a few moments from the Nerazzurri's past, four goals that best express this deep connection, four magic pieces of play that tell the story of a unique and special relationship.
