Inter Milan win Club World Cup title

Inter Milan claimed the Club World Cup trophy after beating African side TP Mazembe 3-0 in Abu Dhabi yesterday afternoon.

Samuel Eto’o and Goran Pandev put Inter two goals to the good early in the first half before Jonathan Biabiany grabbed the third five minutes from the end of time.

Mazembe had created an upset in the semi-final where they beat Brazilian club Internacional 1-0. The Congolese side struggled in the final but did create two good chances to score through Dioko Kaluyituka who was denied by Ivan Cordoba and Julio Cesar respectively.

The victory should take some of the pressure off under-fire Inter manager Rafael Benitez who has struggled to match the dizzy heights reached last season since he took over from Jose Mourinho in June.
