Inter beat Indonesia

Inter have won their friendly against the Indonesian national side 4-2 with a brace each from Philippe Coutinho and Giampaolo Pazzini.

The Nerazzurri have been in Indonesia this week for their end of season tour and Coach Andrea Stramaccioni tested old and new faces in a 4-2-3-1 system.

It took five minutes to break the deadlock in stifling heat, as Diego Milito pounced on a poor pass and set up Coutinho for an angled drive.

Youth team player Samuele Longo tested the goalkeeper before Wanggai equalised by making the most of a wayward Esteban Cambiasso clearance.

Longo, Walter Samuel and Jonathan went close, but it was Coutinho who doubled his tally on another Milito assist.

El Principe went for goal himself only to hit the crossbar at the end of the first half. It was the end of goalkeeper Pierluigi Orlandoni’s Inter career.

Pazzini came off the bench and placed a delightful lob over the shot-stopper to make it 3-1, then added a fourth with a right-foot angled drive again set up by Milito.

In stoppages Pahabol finished off the scoreline by tapping in a cross from the right.
