Rome, July 4 - Italy will play Argentina in a Rome
friendly on August 14 in honour of soccer-loving Argentinian
Pope Francis, the Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) said
Thursday.
Francis will receive the teams, including Argentina
superstar Lionel Messi and Italy star Mario Balotelli, before
the game, the FIGC said.
Francis got a shirt with countryman Messi's name on it from
well-wishers at a general audience in April, about a month after
his election.
The soccer-loving pope was visibly delighted by the gift, a
No.10 Barcelona replica shirt with four-time world player of the
year Messi's name on it.
As Buenos Aires Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Francis
was a fan of one of the Argentine capital's clubs, San Lorenzo.
