INTER MILAN, CONQUERORS OF EUROPE

It was a scrappy game, both teams fighting hard, but in the end Giuseppe Bellusci's first half header proved the winner as Inter Milan triumphed over Arsenal 1-0 to win their 4th UEFA Champions League trophy and their first under manager Giuseppe Bergomi.

Flashback to two years ago; a very young Inter Milan side sat dejected on the Stadio da Luz pitch as their Manchester City counterparts celebrated their penalty kick victory. Bergomi said that day that his Nerazzurri side would return, and now 2 years grown and having made big transfers, they have done so successfully.

Inter had last won the Champions League in 2010 under Jose Mourinho, but after his departure had not been a threat domestically or on the European stage. Giuseppe Bergomi has changed all that, however, having now won 4 Serie A, 4 Coppa Italia, 2 Supercoppa Italiana, 1 European Supercup, 1 Europa League, and now 1 Champions League title.

Inter have historically been a reasonably strong side in Europe and have now won their 4th title, and now move to 6th of all time, tied with Ajax on 4 competition wins. Two of those wins came back when the trophy was still called the European Cup, winning consecutively in 1964 and 1965.

After the match, Giuseppe Bergomi was absolutely beaming. "This is a wonderful achievement for everybody at the club. I don't think anybody expected us to do this but the team believed in themselves and we've accomplished something remarkable."

To add to the occasion, Inter are the first side in the history of the competition to win the trophy on home soil. Almost all of the 80,018 fans sitting in the packed Stadio Giuseppe Meazza were adorned in blue and black and were singing on their beloved Nerazzurri.

"It's something special," said man of the match Giuseppe Bellusci. "This is the greatest moment of my life. I will never forget, and the world will never forget, what we've accomplished here today."

Great update. I remember celebrating really loudly when Inter won the UCL in 2010 because my friend was a Bayern Munich supporter and Inter are my Italian team. Anyway, I think Bergomi has solidified his place as an Inter legend on and off the field :D


P.S I am always going to use these colour in your updates :))
Congrats on your win Keep it up.
Walter: Thanks Walt, love the colors :D

BayernAmerica: Thanks :)

This will be Bergomi's first taste of an international competition and he will be hoping he can have a successful tournament. He told the press, "We are not favorites. That is simple. But, it cannot be doubted, we have on the best squads in the world, and we plan to exhibit that talent and go far in this competition."

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE AWARDS

Golden Ball

Andrea Ranocchia wins the UCL Golden Ball award after a number of scintillating appearances and leading his Inter Milan side to the title. Ranocchia played in 13 games, scoring 2 goals and receiving an 8.02 rating.

Golden Boot

Seven time Ballon D'Or winner Lionel Messi wins the UCL Golden Boot award after scoring an incredible 10 goals in the competition despite being knocked out in the first knockout stage by Manchester City.

Dream XI

Champions Inter were the best represented in the UCL Dream Team with no less than four players in the side: Ranocchia, Bellusci, Peruzzi, and Sissoko. Manchester United were the only other team to be represented by more than one player with Yarmolenko and Baines, while runner-up Arsenal had only 'keeper Szczesny elected to the prestigious XI. Ronaldo, Oviedo, Messi, and Falcao rounded out the side.
BELLUSCI! What a hero, and good to see lots of Inter players in the Dream Team.
WOW great to see sooo many players in the Dream 11. These updates are still really good keep it up mate :D
Come on with the tactic ! I'm so curious :D
Walter: Indeed, and yes, Bellusci has come on leaps and bounds since signing last season :)

wellsy1498: Yes it just shows how well the team did this year. Thanks :D

k3r0s3x: Patience, my friend, patience, it will come :P
Some dominance.. I'd like to replicate your form, but definitely not how much you use foreign players in the Serie A. Love the story though... Check my regen please?

FINAL DANISH SQUAD ANNOUNCED


Having now watched the squad train for a week and evaluated who deserves to stay and who does not, Giuseppe Bergomi has submitted his finalized 23 man squad for the European Championship in the coming weeks.

7 unlucky players have been cut from the 30 man preliminary squad, and those players are as follows: Erik Sviatchenko, Jores Okore, Magnus Troest, Nicolai Jorgensen, Matti Lund Nielsen, Daniel A. Pedersen, and Andreas Stage. Jores Okore and Nicolai Jorgensen are the biggest names to be dropped, while Matti Lund Nielsen and Daniel A. Pedersen will also be sorely disappointed to have been dropped.

Two uncapped players at the senior level have been called up for the Euros: Jakob Ahlmann, who enjoyed a terrific campaign with FC Kobenhaven at left back, and right back Per Kristensen, the Sampdoria right back that Bergomi will know very well from Serie A.

The Danish side will rely heavily on one player, though, despite having many talented footballers, and that player is Real Madrid superstar Christian Eriksen. Despite being only 24 years of age the attacking midfielder has a full 62 caps to his name as well as 13 goals. Eriksen signed for Los Merengues in 2014 and has gone on to mamke 129 appearances in all competitions for the club.

The full squad is as follows:

Goalkeepers
Kasper Schmeichel (Fulham)
Mikkel Andersen (Bolton)
Stephan Andersen (Evian TG)

Defenders
Simon Kjaer (Arsenal)
Andreas Bjelland (CSKA Moscow)
Mathias Jorgensen (Ajax)
Michael Jakobsen (FC Kobenhaven)
Daniel Wass (Evian TG)
Per Kristensen (Sampdoria)
Jesper Juelsgard (Sunderland)
Jakob Ahlmann (FC Kobenhaven)

Midfielders

Christian Eriksen (Real Madrid)
Mads Albaek (Dinamo Moscow)
Viktor Fischer (Getafe)
Lucas Andersen (Ajax)
Bashkim Kadrii (Werder Bremen)
William Kvist (Stuttgart)
Jakob Poulsen (AS Monaco)
Niki Zimling (Espanyol)

Forwards
