Moses Helps Inter Thrash Shakhtar Donetsk, Qualify For First Europa League Final In 22 Years

A brace from Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku and a goal from Danilo D’Ambrosio, saw Inter Milan thrash Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk 4-0, in the semi-final of the Europa League in Cologne, Germany on Monday.

The win means Inter have now qualified for the Europa League final for the first time since 1998.

Then known as the UEFA Cup, Inter defeated fellow Serie A club Lazio 3-0 to claim their third title in Europe’s second-tier club competition.

Parma was the last Italian club to play in the Europa League final back in 1999 when they defeated Marseille 3-0.

Also, Inter will be making a first appearance in a European Cup final since 2010 when they beat Bayern Munich 2-0 in the Champions League inside the Santiago Bernabeu.

Former Nigeria international Victor Moses was in action for Inter after coming on for D’Ambrosio in the 81st minute.

Inter opened scoring in the 19th minute through Martinez before D’Ambrosio made it 2-0 on 64 minutes.

Martinez got his second of the game in the 74th minute while Lukaku added the fourth on 78 minutes.

And with six minutes remaining in the game Lukaku grabbed his second goal to make it 5-0.

The Nerazzuri will now face five-time winners of the Europa League Sevilla, on Friday August 21 in Cologne.

    Moses scored or assisted any of the 5goals or he played 90mins? Na wa for una headline!

      It doesn’t matter. As long as he was among the eleven players on the field of play.

    This hype is too much for a player that came into the match 81mins.

      If Moses played for just thirty seconds then he has helped in that great victory.

      Every contribution matters.Football is a team sports.

      Besides the headline is not misleading,obviously he contributed towards that emphatic victory even though he has to do so just for a few minutes!
