Inter win their first Coppa Italia in over a decade with a topsy-turvy six-goal thriller in extra time against Juventus, including stunning strikes and a controversial penalty.

The Nerazzurri got off to the ideal start with a Nicolò Barella scorcher into the top corner, but Alex Sandro and Dusan Vlahovic turned it around in the space of 120 seconds.

Hakan Calhanoglu converted a rocket of a penalty when Lautaro Martinez was sandwiched between defenders, but was he actually fouled?

That forced extra time, where Matthijs de Ligt brought down Stefan de Vrij for an Ivan Perisic spot-kick and the Croatian sealed with a screamer.

It is Inter’s first Coppa Italia since 2010-11, which is also the last time Juventus ended a season without any silverware.
