FLORENCE, Italy: Fabio Quagliarellas penalty while beating Fiorentina 2-1 on Friday moved him past Gianluca Vialli for third on the list of Sampdorias 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.

Duan Vlahovi 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.

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.
