Serge Aurier and Layvin Kurzawa lead lively Paris Saint-Germain over Inter Milan
Layvin Kurzawa also scored for the French champions, while Stevan Jovetic converted a penalty for the Italian outfit in first-half injury time.
The International Champions Cup is a friendly tournament involving 17 clubs playing on four different continents, all tuning up for their league seasons.
Sunday’s match was played on a grass pitch laid over the artificial turf at Autzen Stadium, home of the University of Oregon’s American football Ducks team.
PSG, under new manager Unai Emery, displayed a lively attack and went ahead in the 15th minute when Hatem Ben Arfa’s free kick was lost by Inter keeper Samir Handanovic and Aurier tapped it in.
Inter pulled level by halftime thanks to Jovetic’s blast from the spot after a penalty awarded for a handball in the area.
PSG regained the lead in the 61st minute through Kurzawa, and Aurier sealed the win when he rose to head home a cross from Alec Georgen in the 87th.
Inter play Bayern Munich in North Carolina next Saturday.
