R’S DEPART ITALY AFTER INTERNAL FRIENDLY EXERCISE

  • QPR round-off pre-season trip to Italy with internal friendly match
  • Samba Diakite, Ale Faurlin, Osman Kakay and Aaron Mitchell (twice) all score in fixture
  • Rangers travel back to London this evening (Friday), with flight from Milan Malpensa to Heathrow

QPR took advantage of a cancellation in their pre-season schedule by playing an internal friendly fixture this afternoon.


Chris Ramsey’s men fly home to London tonight after a week-long stay in Stresa, northern Italy.


Today, Rangers were meant to play Saudi side Al Ittihad but instead partook in this match in Dormelletto.


The two teams wore QPR’s blue and white and black and red colours respectively, with the latter coming out on top in a 4-1 victory.


Both sides sported black shorts and socks, allowing boss Ramsey to rotate the teams at will.


Youngster Aaron Mitchell came on as a substitute for the ‘away’ side and scored two goals, adding to strikes by Samba Diakite and another Under-21 in Osman Kakay.


Ale Faurlin’s first half free-kick effort couldn’t rescue the home team.


QPR (Home): Green, Comley, Onuoha (Haran 60), Caulker (Hill 60), Kpekawa (Hamalainen 30), Phillips, Faurlin, Gobern, Gladwin, Austin, Emmanuel-Thomas.


Goals: Faurlin (43)


QPR (Away): Lumley, Furlong (Shodipo 65), Schorch, Hill (Wise 60), Kakay, Hoilett, Luongo, Doughty (Mitchell 65), Diakite, Polter, Grego-Cox (Blackwood 65).


Goals: Diakite (35), Kakay (52), Mitchell (86 & 88)
