Ã¢â‚¬Å“La Notte PerfettaÃ¢â‚¬Â
La Gazzetta dello Sport ran this headline, ‘The Perfect Night’, in the wake of Inter’s victory at Stamford Bridge. The manner of the win and the style of play which the Italians produced in the second leg was described by the Italian daily paper as Ã¢â‚¬ËœInterissmaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Ã¢â‚¬â€ so Inter-like.
Valerio Clario describes the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœsurprisingly dullÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Chelsea and commends the attacking approach of Inter. Ã¢â‚¬ËœSpecial InterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ knocked the London club out of Europe thanks to the inspirational Wesley Sneijder and the clinical Samuel EtoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢o.
Indeed Calrio asks Ã¢â‚¬Ëœwho will stop Mourinho now?Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ He suggests that EtoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢o deserves an Oscar for Ã¢â‚¬ËœBest ActorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ as his scorching shot sealed their passage into the quarter-finals with Mourinho taking over the role of director. The Italian writer likens the performances of Lucio and Samuel to burly bodyguards.
This installement is finished for now but Calrio claims that the sequel will be even better.
Corriere dello Sport describes the ‘triumph of Inter’, hailing the victory as Ã¢â‚¬Ëœthe masterpiece of Jose MourinhoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. Both Samuel EtoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢o and Wesley Sneijder receive praise with the Dutch international described as once again Ã¢â‚¬Ëœthe man of the matchÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ for I Nerazzuri.
His Ã¢â‚¬ËœmagicÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ helped create the chance for his Cameroonian team-mate, sending the 3,000 travelling fans into a state of delirium. The result means Ã¢â‚¬ËœItalian football is breathing a sigh of reliefÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ as they will have a representative in the last eight following the exits of AC Milan and Fiorentina.
Tuttosport speaks about memorable display from Inter with a five-star performance from EtoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢o and credits Jose Mourinho for his Ã¢â‚¬ËœcourageousÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ tactics. The paper points out that the Portuguese manager Ã¢â‚¬Ëœrisked everything for everythingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
An Ã¢â‚¬ËœimpreciseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Chelsea defence saw Terry and Alex as the guilty ones for allowing EtoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢o to snatch the winner and failing to match the outstanding defensive displays by Lucio and Samuel. The article suggests that Inter will await the quarter final draw on Friday fearing no-one.
