Juventus Football Club has traveled to North America for a three-game tour to participate in the 2011 Herbalife World Football Challenge. The team has been based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and has been holding daily training sessions at the NovaCare facility of the NFL franchise, the Philadelphia Eagles. Five members of the 2006 World Cup winning team (Andrea Barzagli, Gianluigi Buffon, Alessandro Del Piero, Andrea Pirlo and Luca Toni) along with many other internationals, comprise the 27-man Juventus roster led by new manager, Antonio Conte.
