LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND (AP) - Liverpool will open its tour of North America this summer with an exhibition against Toronto FC on July 21.

The Premier League team has scheduled matches against Italian side Roma in Boston on July 25 and English rival Tottenham in Baltimore three days later.

The game against Toronto at the Rogers Center _ the home of the Toronto Blue Jays _ will form part of the World Football Challenge.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish said Tuesday that “we had a great time playing in front of our supporters in Asia last year, and it will be good to give our fans in North America the chance to watch us this summer.”
