Aluko, Osimhen  Clash As Wolfsburg  Take On Fulham In Friendly

 

By James Agberebi:

Nigerian forwards,  Sone Aluko and Victor Osimhen will confront  each other when Fulham host VFL Wolfsburg  at the Craven Cottage in a pre-season friendly game on Saturday, 29th July.

This was announced on Fulham's official website on Wednesday.

A statement on Fulham's website reads: "Fulham host VfL Wolfsburg in what will be our final friendly fixture ahead of the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship season.

"We welcome the German outfit to Craven Cottage on Saturday 29th July (3pm), ahead of our league commencement at home to Norwich City a week later.

Fulham’s previous encounter with Wolfsburg came at the Quarter-Final stage of the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League, as the Whites came away with a famous 3-1 aggregate win over the then German champions.

"Osimhen made just two appearances for Wolfsburg last season as they beat Eintracht Braunschweig 2-0 on aggregate in the play-offs to maintain their Bundesliga status.

Aluko's Fulham was however not so lucky as they lost 2-1 on aggregate to Reading in the promotion play-offs.

Aluko made 49 appearances for Fulham last term, scoring eight goals.
