The teams competing in the International Champions Cup in USA are AC Milan, Barcelona, Bayern Munich Benfica, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Roma and Tottenham Hotspur.
It is expected that most of the teams competing will not be featuring their best players because of the World Cup. Players that will be representing their countries in the World Cup are expected to be on extended breaks when this tournament is being played. For Man City, Phil Foden, Brahim Diaz and a few other academy stars are expected to see significant roles, while the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero etc probably will be on an extended holiday after the World Cup. But none the less, it still will be a great tournament for the United States to host, where the fans will get a close look at some of Europe’s most prestigious clubs.
Any blues trying to make it to the International Champions Cup? For me personally, im going to try and make the Man City vs Bayern Munich match in Miami.
