Hornets to host Italian outfit

Italian Champions league qualifiers Chievo will travel to Vicarage Road to face Watford in a pre-season friendly on Sunday 13 August.

Internazionale, who boast two Italian world cup winners in their side in the form of defender Fabio Grosso and controversial midfielder Marco Matterazzi as well as other big names including Portugal playmaker Luis Figo and Brazil attacker Adrianio, play the Hornets on Tuesday 8 August, kick-off 19.45.
