Didier Drogba and Luis Suarez to Play Friendly in Miami With Messi, Forlan and Other Stars

An exhibition game entitled The World Soccer Masters Tour will feature Didier Drogba, Luis Suarez, Javier Mascherano, Lionel Messi, Diego Forlan and several other high-profile footballers in a game to be played at Sun Life Stadium in Miami on June 23, 2012.

Other stars scheduled to play include Falcao (Atletico Madrid), Dani Alves (Barcelona), Edison Cavani (Uruguay), Alessandro Nesta, Diego Milito (Inter Milan) and Marco Materazzi. Former Brazilian coach Dunga will manage Lionel Messi’s team.

As part of The World Soccer Masters Tour, the two teams will play against each other in Bogota, Colombia on June 21, 2012.

“It will be a real soccer show,” said the organizer to The Miami Herald, on Saturday. “The fans will be able to watch an open game, without pressure, with Messi and the other stars displaying all their fancy play on the field.”

According to The World Soccer Masters Tour, the June 23rd game will be televised live on FOX Soccer.

Tickets are available via Ticketmaster and will go on sale on May 15, 2012, starting at $25.

In addition to The World Soccer Masters Tour exhibition game, another high profile game will be played in Miami this summer when Chelsea plays AC Milan in a July 28 friendly at Sun Life Stadium.

          The game is on June 23rd, and Cristiano Ronaldo is not involved in the Miami friendly.
