Liverpool edged out by Roma

Liverpool's pre-season tour of the United States ended in a 2-1 International Champions Cup defeat by Roma yesterday morning (Singapore time).

The Serie A side won, thanks to goals from Edin Dzeko and Mohamed Salah either side of Sheyi Ojo's equaliser in St Louis.

Juergen Klopp named a strong side, with starts for Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge, but it was Roma who scored first through former Manchester City striker Dzeko just before the half-hour mark.

The Reds were level before the break, though, when Ojo headed home from a corner by James Milner.

But the decisive moment came just after the hour when Salah restored Roma's lead, poking home after Simon Mignolet had saved Dzeko's header.

Liverpool return home to play Barcelona at Wembley on Saturday.
