The Nerazzurri claim a second successive Berretti title as Russo and Brignoli get the goals to seal a 2-1 comeback win against Torino in the final

PRATO – Inter Under-18s have won the Berretti league title for Serie A and B teams for the second year running after beating Torino 2-1 in the final.

Alessio Tuttisanti struck first blood for Torino with a long-range effort just three minutes from kick-off as the Nerazzurri were caught cold.

Gianmario Corti's boys set about finding an equaliser and, after Nicolo Vai and Luka Kerin had gone close, they got their reward in the 39th minute when Pio Francesco Russo finished off a fine team move with a brilliant curling finish to send the sides in level at the break.

The Nerazzurri pressed on after the restart and when Russo was brought down by the keeper, Tommaso Brignoli made no mistake from the spot to complete the turnaround.

Inter held on to secure their sixth Berretti Scudetto - and a 42nd trophy for Inter's youth academy.

Corti's young guns won't have long to savour the success because they'll be back in action on Monday for the 41st Angelo Dossena trophy.
