  • Description

    INTERNAZIONALE OF MILAN, HOLDERS OF THE EUROPEAN SOCCER CUP, STORMED INTO THE FINAL OF THIS YEAR'S COMPETITION WITH A 3-0 WIN OVER ENGLAND'S LIVERPOOL IN MILAN LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY). LIVERPOOL WON THE FIRST LEG LAST WEEK 3-1 BUT INTER-MILAN GO THROUGH TO THE FINAL ON A 4-3 AGGREGATE.

    INTER WASTED NO TIME IN SEEKING TO WIPE OUT THE TWO-GOAL DEFICIT. THEIR STREAMLINED, ALL-OUT ASSAULT HAD LIVERPOOL AT FULL STRETCH. LIVERPOOL ANSWERED WITH ROBUST TACKLING, AND WERE PENALISED EIGHT TIMES IN THE FIRST EIGHT MINUTES.

    IT WAS THE EIGHT FOUL WHICH GAVE INTER THEIR FIRST GOAL -- OUTSIDE-RIGHT MARIO CORSO SCORING FROM THE FREE KICK. FORTY-FIVE SECONDS LATER CAME INTER'S SECOND, A GOAL HOTLY DISPUTED BY LIVERPOOL WHOSE LEAD ON AGGREGATE WAS NOW LOST.

    IN THE SECOND HALF, BOTH TEAMS WENT FLAT OUT FOR THE WINNING GOAL. WITH THEIR BETTER ATTACK, THE ITALIANS ALWAYS LOOKED LIKE GETTING IT FIRST. AND THEY DID -- IN THE 62ND MINUTE WHEN FACCHETTI DROVE IN FROM JUST OUTSIDE THE PENALTY AREA.

    IT WAS SUFFICIENT TO WIN A PLACE IN THE FINAL. AT THE END HALF OF THE 82,000 CROWD SWARMED ONTO THE PITCH, LETTING OFF FIREWORKS. INTER-MILAN'S OPPONENTS IN THE FINAL -- ON MAY 27 -- ARE THE PORTUGUESE CHAMPIONS, BENFICA.
