Inter easily defeated Genoa this weekend, with Romelu Lukaku scoring two goals. The story of the match was arguably 17-year-old wonderkid Sebastiano Esposito, though, as he made his full debut to deputise for Lautaro Martinez. Not only was it his first start, but his first starting goal, too, as Lukaku handed the ball to his young team-mate to take a penalty which was won in the second half. A truly heartwarming moment, and you can see exactly what it means to the young man.

WANDA CRITICISES LUKAKU
Wanda Nara, the wife of Mauro Icardi, is not one for keeping quiet when something is on her mind. She shot to fame as the new girlfirend of Icardi after previously being with Genoa team-mate at the time Maxi Lopez, and has since found more fame as the agent and partner of the Argentine. During Icardi's last season at Inter which left with him leaving for PSG on loan, she was openly critical of the club, and their fans. Now, while everyone is praising Lukaku for handing a penalty to a young player, she has decided to have a pop at his goalscoring record versus bigger teams...

"It would be good to see [Lukaku] in big games too.
"He hasn't scored in the Champions League, he'll watch the knockout rounds on TV.
"The last No. 9 only scored about 150 goals for Inter."
NEW AND IMPROVED GOODISON
For what seems like an age, Everton have been in the process of building a new stadium, with a location at Stanley Park initially mooted. In recent years, that idea has been scrapped in favour of a site at Liverpool's Bramley-Moore Dock, which is where they will build their new 52,000 seater. We all love Goodison Park and the atmosphere in can generate, but it needs more than a lick of paint, so why not start from scratch? Carlo Ancelotti and a new stadium all in the one week, eh?

On Sunday, the Italian Super Cup took place in Saudi Arabia with Juventus taking on Lazio, with the latter winning 3-1 thanks to goals from Luis Alberto, Senad Lulic, and Danilo Cataldi. After winning they were presented with the rather large cup. Apparently it isn't that noticeable, however, as least for this security guard, who doesn't seem to realise it is the big metal thing that set off the metal detector...
Probably the big metal cup that’s set that off, mate. pic.twitter.com/LoULcOZz5p— MUNDIAL (@MundialMag) December 23, 2019
