AS Roma president James Pallotta is pleased with their tour of the US.

Roma are competing in the International Champions Cup.

"The American tour is important for the brand but above all to prepare our players and have them play together," Pallotta told reporters and the official Roma Twitter account.

"We're playing big clubs here, like Real. They won the Champions League: it's a friendly but everyone wants to win these games."
