New York is getting another big summer game, and this one will have a bit of South American flavor to it.
Conmebol World Cup qualifying leaders Chile and Ecuador are set to square off in an international friendly on August 15 at Citi Field in Flushing, SUM announced on Tuesday. The match falls on a FIFA fixture date, so top players like Chile's Alexis Sanchez and Ecuadorian winger Antonio Valencia can be called in.
The friendly between the two South American countries is the latest match scheduled to be played in New York this summer. Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain will do battle on July 22 and Real Madrid will face AC Milan on August 8. Both those high-profile exhibitions will be played at Yankee Stadium.
