Sunday, 01 April 2007 18:31:41

MILAN – Hernan Crespo’s goal in the 2-0 home win against Parma was his 200th at club level in Europe. The Argentine striker’s slotted effort against the Gialloblu ended up in the same net (under the Curva Nord) he scored his first European goal in, in Inter 3-1 Parma on 27 October 1996.

Congratulations Hernán!

CRESPO: “AN EXAGGERATED INTER…”

CRESPO: “AN EXAGGERATED INTER…”
Sunday, 01 April 2007 17:17:11

MILAN – Hernan Crespo scored against his former side to add to Maxwell’s magnificent solo effort and give Inter a 2-0 victory over Parma. “We’re closer and closer to the Scudetto? Only the mathematical certainty is missing now, but we must continue on this path and continue to do well,” the Argentine striker told Sky Italia.

“Maxwell’s goal? Max deserves this wonderful goal and also a lot more. He’s an extraordinary lad. He had a very serious injury, he has worked hard, and has waited for his moment after recovering. Once this happened he started doing wonderful things. We’re very happy for him.

“Great statistics for this Inter? It’s almost like we’re exaggerating. But Inter are an exaggerated team… I’m very happy about my 200th goal since I started playing in Europe, but I’m a little bit disappointed because it’s my first against Parma, the team I started at when I came here from Argentina. Let’s hope they stay up. I will try to score next Saturday in Reggio Calabria to stop Reggina and help them.”

Inter 2 – Parma 0 (Crespo Goal!)

INTER 2-0 PARMA: MAXWELL, CRESPO
Sunday, 01 April 2007 17:03:21

MILAN – Maxwell and Hernan Crespo scored to lead Inter to victory over Parma and put Inter twenty points clear of Roma with nine games of the Serie A season remaining.

The Brazilian full-back opened his scoring account with a sublime solo goal on 56 minutes. Crespo slotted home against his former club fourteen minutes later to hand Roberto Mancini his 100th victory as Inter coach.

There were fews signs of post-international break ring rustiness as the Nerazzurri took full advantage of Roma’s home stalemate with AC Milan and claim their 25th win from 29 league games.

Cambiasso, back in the team for the first time since sustaining an injury in the 2-2 Champions League draw with Valencia, almost got the afternoon off to a perfect start but stabbed wide after a Stankovic cross.

Francesco Toldo, between the posts in place of Julio Cesar, kept out efforts from Rossi, Gasbarroni as relegation-threatened Parma created plenty of early opportunities.

Inter stepped up a gear in the fifteen-minute period before the interval. Marco Materazzi had an overhead kick tipped over by Bucci then Crespo crashed a close-range volley just over.

Maxwell delighted the Meazza with a memorable opening goal after the restart. The Brazilian wing-back won the ball on the touchline, one-twoed with Crespo, slalomed past three Parma defenders and crashed his shot into the roof of the net.

Rossi fired a low shot narrowly wide as a spirited Parma side fought hard for a leveller. But Hernan Crespo increased Inter’s lead on 70 minutes, sidefooting into an open net after receiving square from Adriano.

The Gialloblu’s continued efforts were thwarted by Francesco Toldo, who pulled off a reflex save from Parma’s man of the match Gasbarroni .

Inter went close to a deserved third when Adriano’s header from Recoba’s pinpoint curling cross hit the underside of the crossbar and bounced back off the line.

Gasbarroni then had a flicked effort cleared off the line by Maicon after his initial shot was parried by Toldo, who minutes later made a crucial block from ex-Inter playmaker Domenico Morfeo.

Adriano could have made extra sure of the points late on but fired over after collecting a crossfield pass from Mariano Gonzalez.

Both goalkeepers were called into action in time added on, Recoba forcing Bucci into a diving save before Rossi tested Toldo with a diagonal shot.

CRESPO: “CRUZ DESERVED A GREAT GAME”

CRESPO: “CRUZ DESERVED A GREAT GAME”

MILAN – “You always celebrate derby victories. We have won both of them and it’s enormously satisfying for us,” stated a jubilant Hernan Crespo after Inter’s 2-1 win over AC Milan. “It has been a very hard week for us, so this derby win has come at the right time. The team showed great character and deserved to win.

“In the dressing room before the game we said it will be a special championship for the Nerazzurri fans because we have won both derbies and because Juventus are in Serie B.

“Can we start celebrating the Scudetto? Let’s wait until the mathematics proves us right, but we’re close to the finishing post and today we’re only celebrating the derby victory.

Asked if he was disappointed about his substitution, the Argentine replied: “You’re obviously never pleased when you’re substituted, but I’m very happy because Cruz deserved to play a great game and he won us this derby.”

MANCINI: “A GREAT PERFORMANCE”
MILAN – “I’m happy but I think that’s quite normal after this victory,” declared a satisfied Roberto Mancini after Inter’s 2-1 win over AC Milan. “If we continue at this tempo the season will be extraordinary and the boys deserve it. The only thing I’m sorry about is not getting through against Valencia in the Champions League. I don’t think we deserved to get knocked out over the two legs. The team played a great match today. We might not have finished off our chances in the first half, but we did really well after the restart.”
