Roma edge out Liverpool

A Daniel Agger own-goal was enough to decide Liverpool and Roma’s pre-season friendly at Fenway Park, Boston.

Wednesday evening’s meeting in the United States saw both clubs begin their pre-season tour of the country, in what proved to be a tight affair.

Substitute Marco Borriello’s header in the final minute of regulation time deflected in off defender Agger for the only goal of the contest.

New signings Ashley Cole, Seydou Keita and Juan Iturbe started the match, as did Mehdi Benatia in the heart of defence, whilst Urby Emanuelson and Salih Ucan were among those to come off the bench.

Roma: Skorupski (Lobont 62); Somma (Balasa 62), Benatia (Romagnoli 46), Castan (Calabresi 62), Cole (Emanuelson 62); Florenzi (Ucan 62), Keita (Pettinari 62), Nainggolan (Paredes 62); Iturbe (Destro 46), Totti (Borriello 60), Ljajic (Sanabria 62)
