The African Cup of Nations 2015 (AFCON 2015) constitutes a bad news for some European teams since they’re obliged to be deprived of their players for the whole period of the competition . AS Roma will have big challenges in the beginning of the new year . They will face Udinese on January 6th and that’s why the coach will need all of his players in this date .

The clash between AS Roma and Udinese will be played at an early hour : 11h30 am that’s why , the Italian team believes that they will get the approval of both players national teams since they will be able to travel in the same day .
