Lazio beat Inter Milan in the Italian Supercoppa

Lazio pulled a stunning 2-0 win over Jose Mourinho's Inter Milan to win the Italian Supercoppa held in the Olympic Stadium in China earlier today.

Despite dominating for most of the game Inter found themselves 2-0 down midway through the second half after Francelino Matuzalem and Tommaso Rocchi scored within three minutes of each other.

New signing Samuel Eto'o pulled a goal back for Inter with a brilliant strike on 78 minutes and the former Barcelona man went close to pushing the game into extra-time with a rocket bolt of a free-kick in injury time.

Although they lost out on their first chance of silverware this season Mourinho will have been delighted with how Inter's new signings performed. Eto'o and Diego Milito linked up well in attack while Brazilian centre back Lucio put in an electrifying performance with a number of barnstorming runs from the back.
