AC Milan wins European Super Cup for fifth time

MONTE CARLO, Monaco -- Filippo Inzaghi tied the score early in the second half and Marek Jankulovski got the go-ahead goal to lead AC Milan over Sevilla 3-1 Friday in the European Super Cup, played in the memory of Antonio Puerta.

Both teams and match officials wore black armbands in memory of Puerta, a 22-year-old Sevilla midfielder who collapsed on the field during last Saturday's Spanish league match against Getafe, and died three days later in a hospital after multiple cardiac arrests.

Players from both teams wore Puerta's name on the backs of their jerseys underneath their shirt numbers, and a minute's silence was observed while flags at Stade Louis II were flown at half staff.

Milan fans chanted Puerta's name and draped a banner reading "Onore a Puerta (Honor to Puerta)" from their end of the stadium. Sevilla's section featured several banners in homage to him.

The game featured last season's winners of the Champions League (Milan) and UEFA Cup (Sevilla), and Milan won the Super Cup for the fifth time.

Renato headed in Duda's corner kick in the 14th, then kissed his hand and pointed to the sky while his teammates surrounded him and Sevilla fans chanted Puerta's name.

Inzaghi, who scored twice in the 2-1 victory over Liverpool in last May's Champions League final, started Milan's comeback in the 55th minute when he leaped to head in Gennaro Gattuso's cross.

Milan went ahead in the 62nd on Andrea Pirlo's long pass from midfield to Jankulovski, who shot quickly into bottom corner from an angle.

Kaka completed the scoring in the 87th after he was tripped in the penalty area. Goalkeeper Andres Palop blocked the penalty kick, but the ball rebounded off the goalkeeper's face and Kaka headed the ball in.

Milan also won the Super Cup in 1989, 1990, 1994 and 2003.
