Capello: ‘Inter were good and then…’

Fabio Capello saw “a good game” from Inter at Wembley, until they allowed Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko “to run for 30 metres with the ball at his feet”.

The Nerazzurri were beaten 1-0 by a late Christian Eriksen goal, but the French international was crucial in the build-up, surging down the right flank and setting up Dele Alli for a clever lay-off.

“The Nerazzurri played a good game at Wembley and they were attentive,” Capello told Sky.

“Then it’s clear that you can’t allow an opponent to run for 30 metres with the ball at his feet, as happened with Eriksen’s goal.

“The Dane had a devastating impact, right from his first free-kick cross after he came on. I really liked Borja Valero though, that’s the first time I’ve seen him play like he did at Fiorentina.

“PSV? It’s a game that must be played with determination, but also attention. The Dutch have good players, even if on paper Inter should win.”
