Inter Milan was founded on 9th March 1908 as Football Club Internazionale, following the lead of Milan Cricket and football club which is now AC Milan. The name represented the idea that foreign players along with Italian players were allowed to join the club. They won their first Coppa Italia in 1938–39, led by the iconic Giuseppe Meazza. And the San Siro is officially named after him.  The years 1960-1967 were great for Inter. Further, from 1991-2004 they faced various ups and downs. However, 2004-2011 were extraordinary for the Nerazzurri.

Inter have been going strong this season as Conte has finally found balance with his squad. Furthermore, the Nerazzurri are now Serie A favourites for winning the Scudetto. They’ve won 7 games in a row and are coming after a win against Atlanta gaining the important three points.
