Decimated Inter bring back Rivas

Nelson Rivas has been brought back to fill the gaps in the Inter squad travelling to Chievo on Sunday.

The Nerazzurri are in the midst of an injury crisis and missing 11 players – basically an entire team – for this weekend.

Rafa Benitez is without Coutinho, Cristian Chivu, MacDonald Mariga, Julio Cesar, Diego Milito, Sulley Muntari, Douglas Maicon, Thiago Motta, Joel Obi and Walter Samuel.

In this emergency situation, Colombian defender Rivas has been recalled along with four youth team players.

Rivas has not made a single official appearance in an Inter jersey since the 3-0 Serie A win over Reggina on March 22 2009.

Inter squad: Castellazzi, Orlandoni, Gallinetta; Cordoba, Zanetti, Lucio, Materazzi, Rivas, Benedetti, Santon, Natalino; Stankovic, Sneijder, Cambiasso, Mancini, Nwankwo; Eto'o, Pandev, Alibec, Biabiany
