Pasadena, California:

Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard scored to give Chelsea a 2-0 victory over Inter Milan in their football friendly at the Rose Bowl on Tuesday.

The game _ which pitted Inter coach Jose Mourinho against his old side _ was part of the World Football Challenge, a series also involving AC Milan and Mexican club America.

Drogba scored on a swerving 30-yard shot that Inter goalkeeper Vid Belec could only deflect inside the right post.

Lampard converted a penalty in the 50th minute after Inter defender Ivan Cordoba used his right elbow to block Daniel Sturridge's shot.

Inter striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, believed to be on the verge of a move to European champions Barcelona, come on as a 59th minute substitute. Ibrahimovic led Italy's Serie A with 25 goals last season.
