Jonathan Viera scored twice as Valencia beat Inter Milan 4-0 Sunday in the International Champions Cup.

Ever Banega and Jonas also scored to help Valencia advance to the fifth-place match against Everton on Tuesday at Miami. Inter Milan will face Juventus for seventh place in the preceding match that night.

Banega put Valencia ahead in the seventh minute with a right-footed shot into the upper right corner. Viera made it 2-0 in the 34th after Banega's corner was knocked out of the area.

Jonas took a pass from Viera in the 56th, dribbled around keeper Samir Handovic and tapped it in. Viera sealed the win in the final minute of regulation time after Jonas' kick was blocked by substitute keeper Luca Castellazzi and the ball went right to Viera.
