It was an unforgettable and historic day, a Sunday that will be remembered forever. 23 May 2021 will always be a day of festivities, thanks to Inter’s 19th Scudetto being lifted. The title really arrived on 2 May, with 4 games to spare, but was celebrated with a last league game that was characteristically energy-filled: a brilliant 5-1 win over Udinese.
The last day of the season was a party. The Nerazzurri supporters were waiting for the team outside San Siro, with a crazy welcome for the coaches bringing the players to the ground. Chants, flags and screams for a truly unique pre-game build-up.
Inside San Siro, 1000 fans spectated: a gradual return to normality allowed for a small group of Inter fans to be back in the stadium cheering on their team from the stands. From there, they witnessed the five goals scored by Young, Eriksen, Lautaro, Perisic and Lukaku.
Then came the special, unforgettable moments: Samir Handanovic lifted the Scudetto trophy, on a stage erect in the middle of the pitch, with the whole squad celebrating around him. It was an amazing moment for the Inter players on the pitch and fans in the stands. Then, once the players had embraced one another and their families and taken pictures of the celebrations on the pitch, one of the most iconic moments took place.
The players went up to Tower 4 of San Siro and looked out, showing off the trophy. Underneath where they stood, a sea of Interisti could be seen. A touching moment, with chants, flags, smoke bombs and fireworks, in a “socially-distanced” embrace that must have given everyone chills.
The story of this memorable day is told in this, special episode of OPEN ACCESS: with our exclusive cameras, we show you every moment of this piece of Inter history.
