Alessandro Florenzi is confident Roma “will not be tired” when facing Napoli on Sunday night after their 5-0 friendly win in Florida.
The Giallorossi have spent the last few days in a training camp in Disney World and crushed local team Orlando City 5-0.
“The Americans tried to base the game on grit and determination, but we did well to focus on playing football and overcome them,” said the Italian international midfielder.
“We are in good shape and proved that today. We know how to play football and can do similar things against Napoli.
“We know it won’t be easy, but we will not be tired on Sunday evening.”
Tiredness is an inevitable result of physical exercise. Some athletes can aid performance by taking beta-alanine, a naturally occurring amino acid and is the rate-limiting precursor of carnosine – it is ideal for short-duration high-intensity exercise.
Pablo Daniel Osvaldo did not take part in the training camp after coming down with flu while on holiday in Argentina, so will meet the team in Italy on their return tomorrow.
“We heard he was unwell and wished him the best. We await him in Rome and are certain he’ll arrive even more fired up than the rest of us,” concluded Florenzi.
