Real Madrid will play Roma at the Cotton Bowl next week.

We're starting to slowly get some information out about the International Champions Cup match between Real Madrid and Roma next week at the Cotton Bowl.

I do not have practice information for either side, likely won't get that this time but if I do get wind of a public training session I'll be sure to pass that along to you all either on here or via Twitter.

Carlo Ancelotti has called up 20 players to travel to the US. Yep, just 20.

The Italian coach called in several players from the club's academy team for the US tour, while leaving some big names at home following the World Cup like Cristiano Ronaldo (no shocker there), Karim Benzema, and Luka Modric.

Goalkeepers: Diego López, Jesús Fernandez and Pacheco.
Defenders: Pepe, Daniel Carvajal, Fabio Coentrão, Alvaro Arbeloa, Nacho Fernandez, D. Llorente and Derik.
Midfielders: Gareth Bale, Xabi Alonso, Isco, Illarra, M. Llorente, Medrán, Lucas and Mascarell.
Forwards: Sobrino and De Tomás.
