Chelsea defeats Milan 2-0 in friendly

PASADENA: Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard scored to give Chelsea a 2-0 victory over Inter Milan in their football friendly at the Rose Bowl on Tuesday.

The game - which pitted Inter coach Jose Mourinho against his old side _ was part of the World Football Challenge, a series also involving AC Milan and Mexican club America.

Drogba scored on a swerving 30-yard shot that Inter goalkeeper Vid Belec could only deflect inside the right post.

Lampard converted a penalty in the 50th minute after Inter-defender Ivan Cordoba used his right elbow to block Daniel Sturridge''s shot.

Inter striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, believed to be on the verge ofa move to European champions Barcelona, come on as a 59th minute substitute. Ibrahimovic led Italy''s Serie A with 25 goals last season.
