Boston – Michael Bradley and Alessandro Florenzi scored second-half goals to lift Italy's Roma to a 2-1 victory over Liverpool in a pre-season friendly at Fenway Park on Wednesday.

Bradley sent a right-footed shot past keeper Brad Jones that caromed into the goal off the left post in the 63rd minute, drawing chants of “USA! USA!” The midfielder is the son of former U.S. coach Bob Bradley.

Florenzi, who entered as a substitute 2 minutes earlier, scored off a rebound from directly in front of goal.
