Toronto FC set to host Roma
[DATEBOOK] Serie A club Roma has added Toronto to its list of North American destinations this summer. Toronto FC announced Wednesday that it will play a friendly
against the Italian club Aug. 7, a week after Roma plays in the AT&T MLS All-Star Game at Kansas City's Sporting Park.
Roma, which currently includes on its roster internationals

A third friendly for Roma, with the New York area a possible venue, is
being discussed. Serie A rivals Inter Milan and Juventus, along with six other teams, are competing in the Guinness International Champions Cup at the same time.
