The Brazilian coach knows that Inter didn't play well but gave ample proof of determination and resilience. Again Nerazzurri collapsed in the second half [a risky trademark] but managed to survive even during extratime. Milito's absence was more evident than some of his team mates' presence but they all gave everything and succeeded. That's all that matters now for Leo and his crew.
Great teams do not waste golden opportunities and Inter took the chance to win as great teams do - scoring all penalties. It was only a Coppa Italia quarter final but Nerazzurri will to suffer and win brought back some Barcelona's memories.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Maicon. Only mistake in the whole game. He's back at his best. The usual driving force.
