Saturday, 31 July 2010Friendly: Parma 1-2 Al Sadd

1′, 28′ Da Silva (SAD), 53′ Bojinov (PAR)

Parma lost 2-1 to Al Sadd yesterday evening in a friendly marking the end of their pre-season training in Levico Terme.

Da Silva put the Qatar club ahead almost immediately on 44 seconds after an error by Paci slotting the ball past Mirante. The striker then added his second just before the half hour mark connecting with a cross from the right wing.

Valeri Bojinov grabbed Parma a consolation goal from the penalty spot on the 53 minutes. Bojinov then came close to grabbing the equaliser at the death from a free kick but overall it was a tired performance from the Crociati.


Mirante (78′ Pavarini); Zaccardo (78′ Feltscher), Paci (v.cap.) (66′ Paletta), A. Lucarelli, Antonelli; Morrone (cap.), Dzemaili (78′ Coppola), Galloppa (68′ C. Lucarelli); Valiani, Crespo (46′ Bojinov), Paloschi (79′ Paonessa)
