Inter Milan striker Rodrigo Palacio was delighted to keep a cleansheet as a stand-in goalkeeper for their Coppa Italia win over Verona.

The Argentine took the gloves for the last 16 minutes – in which he caught the eye.

“I made a great save,” he smiled to Inter Channel. “Initially Cristian Chivu said he would go in goal, but then the Coach asked me or Ricky Alvarez to go in.

“I had played in goal a few times as a kid, but luckily it was only for 15 minutes this time…

“We were leading 2-0 so we felt a bit comfortable, but it was important to win the match.”
