Inter Milan boss Stramaccioni hails Palacio - as Coppa keeper

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni praised striker Rodrigo Palacio's performance - in goal - for their Coppa Italia win over Verona.

Fredy Guarin and Antonio Cassano struck Inter's goals in the 2-0 win, with Palacio finishing as goalkeeper due to Luca Castellazzi being stretchered off after all the substitutions had been made.

"Verona started very well and we had a few chances with Ricky Alvarez and Palacio," said Stramaccioni.

"We raised the tempo after the break and scored two goals, but if this Inter doesn't end with a tense finale, then we're not happy.

"Palacio is excellent in goal - he'll be an alternative we should keep in mind!"
