Inter Wins, Joins Juve At the Top

ROME -- Chile's Ivan Zamorano struck twice as Internazionale fought back from conceding a goal in the opening minute to beat Parma 3-1 and join Juventus at the top of serie A.


Argentine Hernan Crespo shocked Inter fans with a superb volleyed goal on his league debut for Parma.


But Zamorano took just three minutes to level the score with a powerful header while Argentine Javier Zanetti's 20-meter shot ensured Inter reached the interval a goal up Sunday.


Former Real Madrid striker Zamorano added a third in the 54th minute to leave Juventus regretting Roma's injury-time equalizer in their 1-1 draw at the Olympic stadium Saturday.


Reigning champions Milan dropped to fourth after stumbling to their third league defeat of the season -- going down to an 83rd minute goal by Anselmo Robbiati at Fiorentina.


Victory for Inter takes the pressure off English coach Roy Hodgson, severely criticized after his expensively assembled side were outclassed by Juventus last week.


"We were 2-0 down after a minute," joked Hodgson after Sunday's match. "First the media criticism, then Crespo's goal."


Vicenza climbed to third after Uruguayan Marcelo Otero broke the deadlock against Cagliari with his sixth goal of the season.

With Cagliari still struggling despite the arrival of Mazzone, Roberto Murgita added a second in the 62nd minute.


Fiorentina are fast becoming Oscar Tabarez's bogey team.


Since taking over from Fabio Capello, the Uruguayan has met the Florentine side twice -- and lost both times.


His official debut on the Milan bench was ruined when Fiorentina carried off the Italian Supercup at the San Siro before the start of the league season.
