While the match was only of a friendly nature, young Slovenian talents Lovro Golič and Luka Mlakar, who are proving themselves in the youth academy of Roma, will never forget their visit to Riyadh. They were honored with a remarkable opportunity: the new coach of the Rome club, Daniele De Rossi, included both of them in the squad that traveled to the match in Saudi Arabia!
Moreover, Lovro Golič started in the starting eleven against Al Shabab, receiving further confirmation that his career is truly on a very, very promising path. The 17-year-old defender, who was a member of Domžale before moving to the Apennine Peninsula, played the first half, receiving a yellow card in the process, and was left in the locker room during halftime by Daniele De Rossi.
Similarly, 17-year-old Luka Mlakar, wearing the number 79 shirt, started the game on the bench and remained there for the entire 90 minutes. Despite everything, he will undoubtedly return to Rome with a host of positive feelings that will undoubtedly further aid him on the path to realizing his dream. And finally, the result: Roma emerged victorious, defeating the Saudi Arabian top-flight team 2-1.
