Benitez analyses Inter's win over Seongnam...
Inter coach Rafael Benitez was pleased with the Nerazzurri's 3-0 win over Seongnam Ilhwa in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup on Wednesday evening.

The Italian and European champions reached the final of the competition thanks to goals from Dejan Stankovic, Javier Zanetti and Diego Milito.

"It was not easy to start as well as we did as we lost [Wesley] Sneijder so quickly," explained the Spaniard, according to Fifa.com. "The second goal made the difference for us and then towards the end we controlled the game.

"It was a very hard win and it was difficult to control the game as Seongnam players were running a lot and they knew exactly what to do. I'm happy with my players as they did what I asked of them.

"Seongnam are well organised and they have a lot of qualities but they had some difficulties tonight and I would like to congratulate their coach for the job that he has done with them."
