Hajduk Split football club caused a huge upset last night (Thurs) in the 3rd round of UEFA Europa League qualifying, when they beat former champions league winners Inter Milan 2:0 at the San Siro stadium in Milan.
Nobody gave the young Hajduk Split team a chance in Milan after they lost the first leg in Split 3:0, but a miracle nearly happened when Hajduk Split took a 2:0 lead early in the second half after goals from Ante Vukusic from the penalty spot and a screaming volley from Ivan Vukovic.
The third goal for Hajduk Split, which would have taken the game into extra time, never came and Hajduk Split coach Miso Krsticevic was left ruing missed chances in the first leg in Split as Inter Milan progressed through to the next round 3:2 on aggregate.
"I regret the chances we had in Split, but in the first match Inter showed their experience and quality. We have to be realistic and understand the size of the club we played against. I want to thank the players, and the fans for the nice moments they gave us and everyone in Croatia and Dalmatia, we will remember these moments," said Krsticevic after the match, reported daily newspaper Jutarnji list.
