Micah Richards had everyone in stitches when he tried to speak Italian with Romelu Lukaku after Inter Milan beat AC Milan to reach the Champions League final.
Lukaku, who is currently on loan at Inter from Chelsea, came on as a second-half substitute for Edin Dzeko at the San Siro on Tuesday night.
Lautaro Martinez scored the only goal of the game to wrap up a convincing 3-0 aggregate victory for the Nerazzurri, who will compete in their first Champions League final since 2010.
Inter, managed by Simone Inzaghi, will now face either Manchester City or Real Madrid in next month’s final at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.
Man City and Real Madrid go head-to-head in the competition’s other semi-final second leg on Wednesday night.

Lukaku was also involved in an amusing moment with Richards towards the end of the interview.
Presenter Kate Abdo asked Lukaku how many languages he speaks, to which he replied: “Right now, seven fluently.”
Abdo then said: “I’m wondering if you’ve ever seen any of the clips from the show and have had a chance to judge Micah’s Italian?”
Lukaku put Richards’ knowledge of the Italian language to the test, and the outcome was hilarious.
