Pre-season matches played in the summer months are a real joy for any fan of the game, especially for those wanting to catch some live football while abroad. With unusual couplings that would often only come about in dreams, a pre-season friendly is always full of surprises. With not much to play for but plenty of fun to watch, a friendly in summer is always a day out to remember. Teams generally play an average of five matches during this period, so this year as always there is plenty to choose from.
