Inter beat Shakhtar to reach the last 16 of the European Championship

Milan – Reuters
Edin Dzeko scored twice in the 6th minute of the second half to give Inter Milan a 2-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in San Siro on Wednesday, leading the Italian team to the knockout stages of the Champions League. For the first time in a decade.
The Bosnian striker opened the scoring 61 minutes later to give Inter the lead, scoring two of his earlier goals and wasting the opportunity.
It didn’t take long for Jeko to double his lead with a close-range header after Ivan Perisic’s cross, scoring his 50th goal in European competition.
The result temporarily sent coach Simon Inzaghi’s side to the top of Group D with 10 points, confirming Shakhtar’s presence at the bottom of the standings.
And if six-point Sheriff Tiraspol fails to beat nine-point Real Madrid on Wednesday, Inter will secure a place in the last 16 for the first time since the 2011-2012 season.
