Romelu Lukaku scored twice as Inter Milan completed a thrilling second-half comeback from two goals down to beat Torino 4-2 in Serie A on Sunday, ending a four-match winless run in all competitions.


Simone Zaza struck late in the first half to give the visitor a deserved lead, and Cristian Ansaldi doubled their advantage from the penalty spot after the break. A hitherto limp Inter performance was sparked to life by the goal and Alexis Sanchez and Lukaku both scored within five minutes of the spot kick to draw the host level.
