MILAN (Reuters) – Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi scored with a stoppage time header to give his side a dramatic 1-0 win over neighbours AC Milan in their derby at San Siro on Sunday.

The match was heading for a tame goalless draw until Matias Vecino floated over a long cross from the right, Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was caught in no man’s land and Icardi scored at the far post in the 92nd minute.

Icardi had a early goal chalked off and Mateo Musacchio had one disallowed for Milan just before halftime, both for offside.

Inter went third in Serie A with 19 points from nine games while Milan are 12th with 12 points, having played a game less.
