Roma debuts for Kolarov and Defrel

Roma are expected to give Gregoire Defrel and Aleksandar Kolarov their debuts in tonight’s International Champions Cup game with Tottenham Hotspur.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s side drew 1-1 with Paris Saint-Germain in the opening match of the tournament, losing on a penalty shoot-out.

Tonight the Coach will be able to count on new buys Kolarov and Defrel, who could well be thrown in at the deep end as part of the starting XI.

Stephan El Shaarawy, Rick Karsdorp, Alessandro Florenzi and Emerson Palmieri are unavailable.

Daniele De Rossi and Radja Nainggolan are back from the start after coming off the bench against PSG.
