This is going to be a fantastic game. AC Milan is wack. Boca and La Doce will make this one fun.

Hosting a exhibition game against one of the most well-known South American Powerhouse teams. Awesome. It's going to be electric at the HDC on May 23rd. Can't wait. Thanks so much, LAG & Tommy Payne! I hope we get a bunch of players fully fit and healthy for that game. I know the coaches are going to have their work cut out for 'em.
