AC Milan went some way towards erasing memories of their dismal Guinness International Champions Cup campaign with a comfortable victory over Chivas Guadalajara.
The San Siro side were beaten 5-1 by Manchester City, 3-0 by Olympiacos and 2-0 by Liverpool in the International Champions Cup and Inzaghi, who only replaced Clarence Seedorf at the end of last season was already feeling the pressure.
So a 3-0 victory over their Mexican opponents at NRG Stadium will have boosted the stuttering Milan side.
However, there were severe question marks over the playing surface and a crowd of just under 15,000 was below expectations.
"Both teams were professional and wanted to act professionally. If the referee said we could play, then we play."
The goals came courtesy of Mbaye Niang, Giampaolo Pazzini and a long-range free-kick from Mario Balotelli.
