The daily quoted FIFA official Mae Mua as saying that a representative of AS Roma and Strata had signed an agreement in England last December.

Mae Mua, who works for the British sports marketing firm Strata in Vietnam, said following the agreement, the match would be held at Hanoi’s My Dinh Stadium on June 2.

The Italian club will bring stars including Francesco Totti, Deniel De Rossi, Bosnian Miralem Pjianic, Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and Erik Manuel Lamela.
