But today, Internazionale became the Italian champion for the season and they won it in style, deservingly.
By beating Siena 2-1 with both goals scored by controversial Marco MATERAZZI, Inter took their tally to 15 league titles. This is the first time they win the league on the pitch since 1989.
This success has an extra value for a few Argentinians who are wearing the black and blue, but specially for the big captain: Javier ZANETTI.
He's suffered immensely since arriving to the "nerazzurri", but his work rate and determination, as well as his talent and commitment have made him a symbol of the Italian giants. He deserves to be the first one to lift that trophy.
Along with him, in today's starting lineup, there were another 4 Argies: Nicolás BURDISSO, Esteban CAMBIASSO, Santiago SOLARI and Julio CRUZ. Mariano GONZALEZ stayed in the bench, while Hernán CRESPO is injured and Walter SAMUEL was sidelined.
So it is a triumph for a great bunch of Argentinians and they deserve it.
Congratulations to them!
