Eto’o scores but Inter beaten in Super Cup

New signing Samuel Eto’o scored but Serie A champions Inter Milan were beaten 2-1 by Lazio in the Italian Super Cup which was staged in the Bird’s Nest in Beijing on Saturday night. The continued experiment of staging the curtain raiser to the Italian season overseas again proved a success with a near-capacity crowd in the Olympic stadium seeing an action-packed encounter. Jose Mourinho’s Inter, with Eto’o going close several times, had largely dominated the game, but Lazio’s Brazilian midfielder Matuzalem made the breakthrough just after the hour mark.
