Quagliarella moves past Vialli on Sampdoria scoring chart
FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Fabio Quagliarella’s penalty while beating Fiorentina 2-1 on Friday moved him past Gianluca Vialli for third on the list of Sampdoria’s all-time scorers in Serie A. The 37-year-old Quagliarella earned the penalty late in the first half and converted for his 86th top-flight goal for Sampdoria.
Current Italy coach Roberto Mancini tops the Sampdoria scoring list with 132, followed by Adriano Bassetto's 89. Dušan Vlahović equalized for Fiorentina in the 71st with a shot from the center of the area.
Valero Verre won it with a lob to finish a counterattack. Federico Chiesa, likely playing his final match with Fiorentina ahead of an anticipated transfer to Juventus, hit the post in added time. Earlier, Sampdoria had a goal from Morten Thorsby waived by the VAR for a handball.
Fiorentina and Sampdoria each have three points from the opening three rounds.
