Video: Liverpool 1-2 Roma – Emre Can makes first start in Reds defeat

Emre Can Liverpool

Liverpool were defeated 2-1 by Italian giants Roma in the Busch stadium as part of their pre-season US tour.

Emre Can made his first start during the pre-season but looked a little rusty which was to be expected considering he has been lounging on sun-beds and partying over the past few weeks.

Can was taken off at half time for Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.

Former Manchester City striker Dzeko opened the scoring on 29 minutes but the Reds went into half time all even when Ojo equalised.

Ex Chelsea player Salah ended up scoring the winner on 62 minutes.
