Enschede - Jittery Inter Milan began the defence of their Champions League crown by taking the lead and then coming from behind to draw 2-2 at Twente Enschede in a rain-hit Group A opener on Tuesday.

Wesley Sneijder, booed by some home fans on his return to the Netherlands, put the visitors ahead after 13 minutes when he slotted home after Diego Milito's shot had been parried.
