GHANA WILL MEET SOUTH KOREA AT SUN LIFE STADIUM BEFORE HEADING TO BRAZIL TO FACE THE U.S.


The South Korean Federation and Sun Life Stadium announced today that Ghana and South Korea will play one last friendly before both squads head to Brazil for the World Cup. Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Monday, June 9 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Asia’s most frequent visitor to the World Cup, the South Korea “Reds” will be led by Park Chu-Young, Korea’s top scorer in qualifying. But keep an eye out for 21-year-old striker Son Heung-min to try to make his mark as well. The team now is being led by former player Hong Myung-Bo, Korea’s most famous player of all time.

The Black Stars of Ghana, on their way to their third consecutive World Cup, boast some of Africa’s biggest names in African football – players like Gyan, Michael Essien and Kevin-Prince Boateng. The counterattacking football makes them an exciting team to watch and a threat to the United States, having beaten them in 2006 and 2010.

Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com or by calling the stadium box office at 305-943-6311. Prices start at $29.00.
