“There's a new appointment on the Roma pre-season agenda! The 'giallorossi' face FC Porto on 28 July, at 8:00 pm local time. The game is played in Portugal”, says the Italian club on its official website.

The game with the Italians was announced by both clubs, with the 'dragons' also informing on their page that the match will be at the Estádio da Bela Vista, in Parchal, Algarve, three days after the team faced the French in Lille, at the Estádio do Algarve, on 25 July, at 7:45 pm.

Portuguese coach José Mourinho, who was free after leaving Tottenham, was announced on 5 May as the new coach of the Romans, succeeding Paulo Fonseca, who last season finished Serie A in seventh place.

On Tuesday, it was the turn of the Italian club, who also has Portuguese Tiago Pinto as football director, to announce the arrival of the Portuguese national team's goalkeeper, Rui Patrício, who signed for three seasons from Wolverhampton.
