Southampton have achieved a milestone win over Italian giants Inter Milan in the Europa League after coming from a goal down at half-time.

They beat the three-time European Cup/Champions League winners 2-1 in the closing stages at St Mary's.

Mauro Icardi gave Inter the lead on 33 minutes.

But Claude Puel's Southampton had a chance to level in first half stoppage time.

However, Dusan Tadic failed to convert from the penalty spot.

But in a five minute spell from the 64th minute, Southampton managed to not just level but go in front.

Centre-back Virgil van Dijk applied the finish for the equaliser.

And Tadic's cross went in off Inter full-back Yuto Nagatomo for the winner.

Southampton are now second in Group K, two points behind Sparta Prague.

Inter are bottom of the group in a nightmare start to the season which has seen manager Frank De Boer sacked already.
