Italian giants put on a show
JUVENTUS closed out the International Champions Cup friendly tournament with a 5- 4 win on penalties over Roma after the Italian clubs played to a 1- 1 draw yesterday.
Mario Mandzukic’s opening goal for Italian champions Juventus was cancelled out by Edin Dzeko’s second- half strike.
The match between last season’s top two Serie A teams offered a tantalising glimpse of the upcoming domestic campaign. Managers Massimiliano Allegri and Eusebio Di Francesco named strong starting line- ups.
The match drew 33,000 fans to Gillette Stadium, home of the NFL’s champions the New England Patriots.
