AC Milan were praised in this morning's newspapers after their Champions League final victory over Liverpool saw them conquer Europe for a seventh time.

'Splendid Revenge' is the headline in Gazzetta dello Sport after the 2-1 success in last night's game.

Pre-match coverage centred on the Rossoneri's defeat to Liverpool on penalties two years ago in Istanbul in the title game, a contest the Italian team had led 3-0 at half-time.

Milan-based Corriere della Sera salutes the Italian giants' two-goal hero Filipo Inzaghi with a headline 'Inzaghi takes AC Milan to the top of Europe'.

The 33-year-old Inzaghi is singled out by French paper Le Figaro, which called him "The hunter of the night".

Turin's La Stampa connects Milan's triumph to Athens, Greece, where the match was played, with a headline 'AC Milan and the Cup of the Gods'.

Gazzettino, the popular publication in the north-eastern part of Italy near Milan, had 'AC Milan get the Cup back after throwing it away in Istanbul'.

Back in France, sports paper L'Equipe say 'Milan are immortal' while Le Figaro calls the victory 'Revenge the Italian Way.'

L'Equipe also talk about the "hard skin" of Italian soccer as it refers to Milan's triumph coming in the same season the club was docked points for match-fixing.

In Spain, Marca focus on Milan cutting into Real Madrid's lead in European Cups.

'Milan 7 Real 9' says a headline, with the sports paper then writing: "Italians gain revenge against Liverpool and get closer to Real Madrid's tally".

El Pais, Spain's national newspaper, says 'Milan enriches it's history'

Liverpool had Javier Mascherano of Argentina and Milan Kaka of Brazil, so the press was watching events closely back in South America.

Argentina's sports paper Ole says, 'Another King of Cups - there wasn't a happy ending for Mascherano while Jornal do Brasil shows a large photo of Kaka holding the Champions League trophy with the headline 'A New King'.
