Inter vs Parma 3-2

Posted on January 22, 2008. Filed under: Inter, serie a, Video | Tags: , , , |

Inter continued their winning ways and amazing unbeaten record, this time against Parma. The game was played on the weekend and the win continues to keep Roma at bay with 7 points difference. This match was certainly a controversial affair.

The ever-reliable midfield presence of Cambiasso started off the scoring with a trademark, cool, calm and collected goal. Although Parma was lost for a while after that goal, they found the net to equalise in a nice, well-finished, team effort. Both teams continued to come close to breaking the deadlock but eventually it was Parma that went in front with an amazing free kick, Parma 2-1.

This woke Inter up and they began to press even harder, including a disallowed goal. They were awarded a penalty when Couto was judged to have handled the ball in the area. This was a very difficult call because it really looked like it was a hand-ball but only in slow-motion is it possible to see that he did in fact head the ball away. Personally I feel it was stupid of him to place his arm in such a close position to the ball as it made it look like a hand-ball. In fact it’s more than likely that he had the arm ready for if his head missed anyway. Either way, Ibrahimovic made no mistake from the spot, 2-2. To finish of the drama, Ibrahimovic scored once again to hand Inter full points in a beautiful, well-controlled strike. Chesting down a cross into the path of his right boot in the middle of the Parma box, an amazing piece of control, strength and finesse.

See the highlights for yourself.
