Amauri decides Parma friendly

Parma started pre-season training with an in-house game decided by Amauri’s header.

The Ducali began fitness work eight days ago, but this was their first match situation at the Collecchio ground.

It was a game between ranks and the Parma Blue team beat the Parma White 1-0 thanks to a header from veteran striker Amauri on Raffaele Palladino’s assist.

There was an impressive performance from 23-year-old goalkeeper Alessandro Iacobucci, who saved several great chances from Alberto Cerri and Daniele Galloppa.

Iacobucci is hoping to remain at the Stadio Tardini after spending last season on loan at Serie B side Latina.

The heat was so strong that Coach Roberto Donadoni decided to end the match seven minutes early.

Parma White: Cordaz (Russo 46); Santacroce (Rispoli 46), Ceppitelli, Lucarelli, Gobbi; Ninis (Galloppa 55), Jorquera, Galloppa (Jankovic 46); Biabiany, Cerri, Bidaoui

Parma Blue: Iacobucci (Bajza 46); Felipe, Feddal, Mendes, Ristovski; Munari, Marchionni (Musacci 46), Mauri; Belfodil (Ninis 55), Amauri, Palladino
