Southampton remain on course to reach the Europa League knockout phase after fighting back to earn a memorable win against Italian giants Inter Milan.

Inter scored with their first shot on target when skipper Mauro Icardi pounced to smash in a loose ball.

Dusan Tadic missed a controversial penalty in first-half injury-time, but Virgil van Dijk hooked in to level as Saints improved after the break.

And they claimed all three points after Yuto Nagatomo’s own-goal howler.

The Inter defender allowed Tadic’s left-wing cross to bounce off his thigh and loop over his keeper Samir Handanovic.

Victory keeps Saints second in Group K with seven points from their four matches, meaning they will be assured of a place in the last 32 if they win at leaders Sparta Prague in their next game on 24 November.
