No Inter-two-bob, we play Inter
Aston Villa have announced who our first home pre-season friendly opponents in 12 years will be.
They are a smallish team, not sure you'll even have heard of them, they have virtual unknowns play for them, people like, Patrick Vieira, Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Olivier Dacourt, Adriano, Walter Samuel and Hernan Crespo.
Yup, Italian giants Inter Milan are coming to Villa Park on Saturday August 4 (ko 3pm).
Martin O'Neill said: 'We're playing Inter Milan on August 4. They're down here to play in a tournament featuring Manchester United, so it should be a good game for both sides. It will provide us with a significant test at a vital time in our preparations. As they have won Serie A by 22 points they are clearly no pushovers as their history suggests and hopefully our supporters will enjoy it.'
Adding: 'Hopefully everyone enjoys the occasion.'
