Stankovic hits treble

Midfielder Dejan Stankovic set alight a freezing San Siro with his first three goals of the Serie A season as Inter Milan beat Parma 5-2 to secure their first league victory in a month.

Inter now trail leaders AC Milan by seven points after their city rivals drew 1-1 at Sampdoria on Saturday. The cold weather, the unpopular new midday kick-off and Inter's recent woes contributed to a small crowd at the San Siro.

Home Ultras came late in protest at the Italian government's imposition of electronic cards to track hooligans and most missed former Inter man Hernan Crespo's opener for Parma before Stankovic took centre stage.
