Diego Milito couldn't have asked for a better comeback from injury. “It was a great way to return and with time I'll get even better.”
The striker was one of several Inter stars who had been on the treatment table, but proved decisive in the 3-0 win over Seongnam.
“I am very happy with the victory,” said El Principe. “We really wanted this win and to reach the Club World Cup Final.
“This is why it was a great way to return and I felt good physically. I am naturally still missing something in terms of sharpness, but with time I'll get even better.”
Milito scored the third goal and set up both strikes for Dejan Stankovic and Javier Zanetti.
“Many of us are still coming back from long lay-offs, so the whole team will improve with time.”
The Final is on Saturday against Mazembe, who caused a huge upset by beating Internacional 2-0.
“We respect our opponents. It was clear from yesterday's semi-final that they are a tough side and will be difficult to face, even if we are relaxed and confident after our performance.”
