Roma-Lazio-San Lorenzo for Pope?

The President of San Lorenzo has suggested a mini-tournament with Roma and Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico, including guest of honour Pope Francis.

It is well known that Pope Francis is a big fan of Argentine club San Lorenzo and even owns shares in the side.

The President of San Lorenzo, Matias Lammens, has now put forward the idea of playing a special charity event in Rome on August 10.

They would play 45-minute games against both Roma and Lazio with Pope Francis in the stands to cheer everyone on.

It is the second offer of a friendly match at the Stadio Olimpico for the Pontiff, as Cesare Prandelli and the FIGC had already proposed an Italy-Argentina game.
