Viareggio Cup: Inter knocked out on penalties

MONTEMURLO - Alen Stevanovic had a great chance in the first half and Mattia Destro hit the crossbar after the restart, but ninety minutes weren't enough for Fulvio Pea's Inter Primavera. Neither were penalties. After a 0-0 draw, the Viareggio Cup last sixteen clash between Inter and Atalanta was decided by a shoot-out, and the Bergamo Nerazzurri scored all five of their spot-kicks with Giulio Donati missing his.
Tuesday afternoon's match was played on a synthetic pitch and the strange bounces seemed to affect Inter's play from the outset. Atalanta defended strategically, did not create many chances, and saved their best for the penalty shoot-out. Inter are out of the Viareggio Cup, and as they say in these cases, it wasn't our destiny.
