SUMMER FRIENDLY UPDATE: BOCA ANNOUNCE ROSTER, LEAVE STARS AT HOME

SUMMER FRIENDLY UPDATE: BOCA ANNOUNCE ROSTER, LEAVE STARS AT HOME

Boca juniors Head coach Roberto Pompei announced his travel roster for Boca Juniors matches against Los Angeles Galaxy, Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers on Wednesday, but at the same time news was released that Juan Roman Riquelme has had surgery on his knee. A move that will prevent him from playing in the early parts of next season, let alone the three match US Tour.

This will come as a blow to Galaxy fans who already were disappointed that Martin Palermo was included in the Argentina 30-man squad for the 2010 World Cup.

Galaxy fans could see an advertisement glowing over the 405 freeway, telling them to buy tickets to see Palermo and Riquelme this Saturday Night, but alas, that is not the case.

Palermo and Riquelme are not the only absences from the squad.  Stars that didn’t make the trip include Sebastián Battaglia and Nicolás Gaitán.

The match, which kicks off at 5pm PT, will be televised locally on Fox Sports West in English and nationally in Spanish on Galavision.
