A total collapse in the second half saw Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur thrash Inter 6-1 in Oslo on Friday. Coming on the heels of Inter’s 4-1 defeat to Bayern Munich last week, the Nerazzurri have conceded 10 goals in their last two games.
I am sure Roberto Mancini will try and spin the result that Inter played well in the first half and were unlucky to be losing 2-1 at half-time. That might work if this was the first or second preseason match, but we are less three weeks until the season starts and that second half collapse in inexcusable.
Things didn’t start well, as Cristian Ansaldi fell gave away a penalty for a foul on Kyle Walker that was fired home by Harry Kane.
Ever Banega, who made his debut with the Nerazzurri, setup Ivan Perisic with a great pass in the 23rd minute, and the Croatian leveled the score with a great left-footed effort.
The Argentine was at the centre of all that was good for Inter, but the Italian side went into half-time down 2-1 as Erik Lamela fired home from outside the penalty area just before half-time. The play of Banega and Perisic was one of the few bright spots in the first half.
Spurs made four changes but they continued to press forward, as Kane netted two goals inside the opening 12 minutes of the restart to make it 4-1.
Mancini finally made some changes in the 60th minute, but it changed very little as Vincent Janssen and Shayon Harrison rounded out the heavy scoreline for the Premier League side.
INTER: 1 Handanovic; 15 Ansaldi (18 Erkin 59), 24 Miranda (13 Ranocchia 75), 25 Murillo (94 Yao 75), 33 D’Ambrosio; 77 Brozovic (5 Melo 59), 7 Kondogbia; 10 Biabiany, 19 Banega (10 Jovetic 59), 44 Perisic (55 Nagatomo 59); 9 Icardi (12 Bessa 75).
Subs not used: 30 Carrizo, 46 Berni, 8 Palacio.
