Chelsea announce two summer friendlies

Mike Hewitt

There were no post-season friendlies this time around (thanks, World Cup!) but Chelsea were hardly going to avoid friendlies entirely this summer. The club has announced their first two friendlies of the summer, which are set to take place just after the World Cup against League Two opposition. The Blues play against Wycombe Wanderers for Matt Bloomfield's testimonial on July 16th, and they'll follow that up three days later with a match against AFC Wimbledon. Both matches are away.

The team won't be close to full strength, even for a friendly -- most of the players on World Cup duty should still be off by then -- but hey, it's a friendly, a nice chance for players to get a runout and improve their fitness ahead of a gruelling season. I'm looking forward to them, if only because the last time we played Wycombe in a friendly Chelsea scored one of the best goals ever:
