Vidic scores as Inter beat Roma

Nemanja Vidic was on target as Inter Milan beat Roma 2-0 in the International Champions Cup on Saturday.

The former Manchester United centre-back headed home a free-kick from Brazilian left-back Dodo in first-half stoppage time to give Inter the advantage over their Serie A rivals in the Group A clash at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Mattia Destro squandered a glorious chance to equalise for the Giallorossi soon after the restart, heading Alessandro Florenzi's cross wide from close range.

The Dodo to Vidic combination almost worked again for Inter on 64 minutes from a corner, but the Serbia international put that chance over the bar.

However, three minutes later Japan wing-back Yuto Nagatomo rifled a shot into the roof of the net after the ball broke loose across the box.
