The stars will be on hand as Real Madrid will face AS Roma in a Guinness International Champions Cup match at the Cotton Bowl on July 26th.  The only main star that is not on the Real Madrid roster is Gonzalo Higuain who represented Argentina in the recent World Cup final in Brazil.  Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale will be on full display.

Real Madrid will be playing in Group A of the GICC tournament along with Italian giants Roma and Inter Milan as well as Manchester United of the English Premier League.

It will be seen if the recently signed Tony Kroos is added to the roster.  Also rumoured signings for Real Madrid in the near future as Costa Rica star keeper Keylor Navas and Colombian striker James Rodriguez.  Hopefully deals go through in time for them to come to the United States as well.

Roma will be featuring well known players such as Maicon, Daniele De Rossi, Gervinho and Francesco Totti.
