Eto'o: 'Inter can qualify. Barca did it'

Samuel Eto'o insists Inter can overturn their 5-2 defeat to Schalke in the Champions League. “With Barcelona we had lost 5-1 and went through...”

The Nerazzurri's hopes of retaining their European crown are hanging by a thread after the shock first leg result at San Siro.

They travel to Gelsenkirchen on Wednesday and will need at least four goals to qualify.

“Oh I've seen it done before,” grinned Eto'o. “When I was playing with Barcelona we lost 5-1 to Getafe, but with a 4-0 second leg result we went through.

“It may seem pretty difficult to believe in this comeback right now, but anything is possible in football. Even dreams are possible.

“Inter are a side who can put in a great performance and qualify for the semi-final. It's all open in Serie A as well, because there are still two months to go.”
