Golden Milan conquer Olimpia

Robinho and an Antonio Nocerino double confirmed the new-look Milan’s impressive pre-season form, as they pushed past CD Olimpia in Boston.

The US tour continued in the blazing sun against the Hondurans with Antonio Cassano finding his sharpness.

FantAntonio repeatedly combined with Robinho and created space for Nocerino to push up from midfield.

The Brazilian opened the scoring with a snooker-shot into the far bottom corner.

Stephan El Shaarawy wasted another good opportunity before Robinho knocked down a Cassano cross for Nocerino to double their lead.

Robinho also set up Ignazio Abate, who ran into traffic in the box and smartly rolled across for Nocerino’s tap-in.

Olimpia got one back in the second half through substitute Escalante.
