Romelu Lukaku scored after just 22 seconds and added another goal to help Inter Milan to a 4-1 victory over Cagliari at San Siro on Tuesday and a place in the Italian Cup quarter-final. 

Lukaku took advantage of a panicked back pass from Christian Oliva to ram home Inter's first goal inside the opening minute in the perfect start for the home side, who will next meet the winner of Fiorentina's tie against Atalanta on Wednesday.

The Belgian striker then had a second ruled out by VAR and missed a chance to touch home Nicolo Barella's powerfully struck cross but veteran Borja Valero behind him scrambled it over the line for a 2-0 lead after 21 minutes.
