MILAN - Five minutes and 26 seconds that will never be forgotten, and it all happened on 9 January 2005. Sampdoria had taken a two-goal lead at San Siro. But just when it looked like the game was out of reach, Martins reduced the arrears in the 88th minute to give Inter hope. Two minutes and 50 seconds later, Vieri scored. 0-2 had become 2-2. “Nulla è impossibile per questa Inter” (“Nothing is impossible for this Inter side”) were the words bellowed by Roberto Scarpini. And then Karagounis crossed it in, Stankovic laid it off and Recoba let fly. From 0-2 down to 3-2 up in five minutes and 26 seconds. Delirium at the Meazza deep into stoppage time.
This will be our second ‘Inter Classics’ match, a format that we’re bringing to you during this period without football and which will take place every Wednesday at 22:00 CET. After Inter vs. Roma last week (you can rewatch it here), this week’s event on our YouTube channel will be Inter 3-2 Sampdoria from 2005. We’ll accompany you throughout on our social media channels: there will be a ‘real time’ report on Twitter of the game which is being broadcast on YouTube, just as we would do for usual Nerazzurri games. You’ll be able to comment on and follow the match, in which Nerazzurri stars of the past will be the protagonists, by using the hashtag #InterClassics.
