Samp line up English friendlies

Sampdoria have confirmed preseason friendlies against English sides Fulham and Watford.

A statement on Samp’s official website reads the club will travel to Aldershot on August 1 for a 19:45 BST kick-off against Fulham, who recently returned to the Premier League via the playoffs.

The match would have normally been played at Craven Cottage, but the stadium is currently undergoing renovation work.

Three days later, the Blucerchiati will face Watford at 15:00 BST, with the game due to be contested at the Hornets’ home of Vicarage Road.

Samp have previous against Watford, thrashing them 3-0 in a friendly at Marassi 17 years ago.
