Club America vs Manchester City in San Francisco: Roll Call

world football challenge1 Club America vs Manchester City in San Francisco: Roll Call

Manchester City kick off its 2011 US summer tour Saturday evening in San Francisco when they face Club America (live on Telefutura at 8pm ET).

If you’re planning on going to the game, definitely post a comment here to let everyone know. Tell us a little about yourself. Have you seen Manchester City play before? Are you a City fan? Which player are you most excited about seeing?

If you’re going, please contact me at thegaffer[at]epltalk[dot]com if you’re interested in writing an article about your experiences at the game, or if you’d like to take some pictures. The best photos and articles will be published on EPL Talk.

Hopefully City will play with more passion than they did on their tour last summer where they seemed very disinterested and uninspiring. With City qualifying for the Champions League and having won the 2011 FA Cup, I hope the team will have a lot more vigor about them against a strong Mexican side. It should be a great test in City’s first preseason match of the summer.

Manchester City’s roster for the US tour is as follows:

GOALKEEPERS (4) – Joe Hart, Eirik Johansen, Loris Karius, Stuart Taylor

DEFENDERS (9) – Dedryck Boyata, Gaël Clichy, Aleksandar Kolarov, Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott, Ryan McGivern, Micah Richards, Stefan Savi?, Frederic Veseli

MIDFIELDERS (10) – Gareth Barry, Nigel De Jong, Adam Johnson, Andrea Mancini, James Milner, David Silva, Denis Suarez, Yaya Touré, Vladimir Weiss, Shaun Wright-Phillips

FORWARDS (3) – Mario Balotelli, Edin Džeko, John Guidetti

Post your comment below if you’re planning on heading to watch Manchester City.
