Sneijder dreaming of final glory

Published: Wednesday 17 March 2010, 0.04CET
Wesley Sneijder is backing FC Internazionale Milano to win the UEFA Champions League "if we play like we did today" after helping the Nerazzurri defeat Chelsea FC 1-0 in the second leg of their first knockout round tie. "This is important because Chelsea are one of the best teams in Europe," said the playmaker, who set up Samuel Eto'o for the winner 12 minutes from time. "To beat them is a big step but we are still not in the final. We can [win the competition] when we play like today, of course we can do it."
