Sheffield United have held Italian giants Inter Milan to a 1-1 draw during their pre-season clash at Bramall Lane this evening.

New Blades signing David McGoldrick marked his home debut by giving his side the lead shortly before the half-hour mark, before Mauro Icardi levelled things up again just seven minutes later.

However, the Serie A outfit - who will compete in the Champions League next season - could not find a winner in the second half as Chris Wilder's side held out for an impressive result.

The opening exchanges of the match were disrupted by an early injury to Inter defender Dalbert Henrique, who was eventually withdrawn after lengthy treatment on the pitch to be replaced by Maj Roric.

Goalmouth action was sparse in the first quarter of the match, with the hosts coming closest to opening the scoring when Jack O'Connell put a header over the crossbar in the 17th minute.

However, the Blades would take the lead against their illustrious opponents shortly before the half-hour mark when McGoldrick - who only completed his move to the club this afternoon - broke the deadlock after good work from Enda Stevens and John Fleck down the left.

It could have got even better for the Championship outfit just four minutes later when Fleck almost turned from provider to scorer, sending a dipping volley inches past the post with Samir Handanovic beaten.

Inter were level only three minutes after that, though, as captain Icardi - who has been linked with a mega-money move away from San Siro this summer - applied the finish touch to Andrea Candreva's cross 10 minutes before half time.

Icardi almost completed the turnaround with a second in quick succession moments later, but this time summer signing Dean Henderson was equal to the effort to keep the scores level going into half time.

That is how it would stay too, with clear chances at a premium during the second half, although United did almost steal a famous victory six minutes from time when Billy Sharp turned Andrea Ranocchia before getting a shot away which forced Handanovic into a smart save.

Mark Duffy also had a late sight of goal when he fired over as Wilder's side pushed on for the win, but they were unable to claim the significant scalp of Inter and instead had to make do with a draw against the three-time champions of Europe.

United now have just one pre-season match remaining - against Doncaster Rovers - before the start of the Championship campaign, whereas Inter will continue their European tour with International Champions Cup games against Chelsea, Lyon and Atletico Madrid.
