Italy-France friendly slated for Parma in November

  •  

ROME (AP) -Italy's friendly against France in November will be played in Parma, marking the Azzurri's return to the city after a friendly with Luxembourg in May was canceled due to an earthquake.

Italian football federation president Giancarlo Abete made the announcement Friday.

The match is scheduled for Parma's Ennio Tardini stadium Nov. 14.

Italy beat France on penalties to win the 2006 World Cup. The teams last met in the group stage of the 2008 European Championship, when Italy won 2-0.

Back-to-back earthquakes in May killed 24 people in the Emilia region.

Abete added that Italy will play a World Cup qualifier at Naples' San Paolo stadium next year.
