Inter Milan has a long history that stretches back over a century. The famous colours of the Nerazzurri are known to most people and they are the only team in Italy to have never been outside of Serie A since making their debut.

For people following their exploits, either from the angle of fandom or betting options from the Match Center website, it’s a rich history that the club has, during which some of the world’s most famous players have appeared for them.

There have also been numerous honours ranging from multiple Serie A titles to the Coppa Italia and UEFA Champions League which has helped fill up the trophy cabinet.

Giuseppe Meazza who had two spells with Inter Milan from 1972-1940 and 1946-1947 is the all-time leading goalscorer at the club, with what appears to be an insurmountable tally of 287 goals.

But which are arguably the five greatest goals to be scored by an Inter Milan player, finding that balance between the importance of the strike and how beautiful the goal was?

Ronaldo Destroys Lazio

During the all-Italian clash with Lazio in the 1998 UEFA Cup final, Ronaldo scored one of the most memorable Inter Milan goals ever.

This was Ronaldo, one of the greatest forwards ever to play the game, in his prime with a turn of speed that would destroy defences.

The Brazilian simply burst from the halfway line down the centre of the pitch, as one of his teammates collected the ball on the right side of midfield. The ball was played through to Ronaldo to continue running onto and no Lazio defender could get near him.

With some fancy footwork in a one-on-one with Lazio keeper Luca Marchegiani, Ronaldo sent the Inter fans into dreamland at 3-0 up.

Diego Milito

Diego Milito scored a beauty for Inter in the 2010 UEFA Champions League Final against Bayern Munich. The Italians hadn’t been crowned European champions for more than four decades but that was about to change.

Argentina’s Milito was the star of the show in the match played at Real Madrid’s Bernabéu. After opening the scoring with a 35th-minute goal, Milito’s second of the match was sublime.

He received the ball from Samuel Eto’o, charged into the box, turned a defender inside out and coolly slotted the ball past goalkeeper Hans-Jorg Butt.

Maicon Blitzes Buffon

Brazilian full-backs have a reputation for being huge attacking threats. Maicon showed just why during a Serie A match against Juventus in the 2009-10 Serie A season. Following a free-kick the ball came out to Maicon who was outside of the box.

The ball dropped from the air, Maicon controlled it on his knee, flicked the ball away from a charging defender, controlled it on his knee again and sent a curling volley into the corner of the net.

As it was against legendary keeper Gianluigi Buffon, Maicon’s goal gets extra props.

Dejan Stankovic Lobs Manuel Neuer

Returning to the UEFA Champions League for another highlight Inter Milan goal, Dejan Stankovic’s is hard to forget. In the 2010/11 quarter-finals against Schalke, Stankovic netted the opening goal of the game after just 25 seconds in spectacular style.

Schalke keeper Manuel Neuer had launched himself into a headed clearance outside of his box and the ball dropped to Stankovic near the halfway line who volleyed the ball back over Neuer and into the net.

Maicon’s Derby Winner

Here is that man Maicon again who clearly had a flair for a spectacular strike. In the 2011/12 derby against AC Milan, Inter had big motivation in the match, which was basically ruining the title chances of their rivals in what was their penultimate game of the campaign.

Inter had fought back from 2-1 down to lead 3-2 which saw AC Milan pushing hard to get an equaliser to keep their title hopes alive.

But Maicon shot that down when he collected the ball near the halfway line and ran full pelt towards the corner of the Milan box.

Failing to be closed down by any defender, Douglas Maicon launched a spectacular rocket into the top corner with Milan keeper Marco Amelia beaten all ends up from a distance.

Other honourable mentions include Sandro Mazzola’s headed goal in the 1965 European Cup final against Real Madrid, and Samuel Eto’o’s cheeky backheel against Barcelona in the 2009-10 Champions League – all famous moments in the rich Inter history.
