Grande Inter

 

Exactly 50 years ago today, on 15 September 1965, the Inter side of Angelo Moratti and Helenio Herrera wrote their names in world footballing history by winning their second Intercontinental Cup, a year on from the first.

Sarti, Burgnich, Facchetti, Bedin, Guarneri, Picchi, Jair, Mazzola, Peirò, Suarez, Corso. A line-up that all Inter fans know off by heart. A legendary team that dominated in Italy, Europe and the world.

Independiente were once again the opposition. The first leg on 8 September was no contest as the Nerazzurri brushed the Argentines aside, 3-0 at the San Siro with a goal from Peirò and a double from Mazzola. A week later, the return in Avallaneda finished 0-0. Inter were champions of the world again.
