Magpies to host Fiorentina
The Magpies will take on Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men at St James’ Park
on Saturday, August 6 (kick-off 3pm). Fiorentina, who boast former
Celtic keeper Artur Boruc and Italy striker Alberto Gilardino among
their ranks, finished ninth in the league last season. It will be
the first time the two sides have met since the final of the
1972-73 Anglo-Italian Cup in Florence, a game Newcastle won 2-1.
