PPL Park to host Ghana-Chile friendly

African Cup of Nations semifinalist Ghana will play Chile in an exhibition game at the Philadelphia Union’s PPL Park on Feb. 29.

The match, announced Friday, is on a FIFA international fixture date, so both teams may have top players available.

Chile’s player pool includes Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez and Monterrey’s Humberto Suazo, while Ghana’s has Chelsea’s Michael Essien.

Ghana knocked the U.S. out of the 2010 World Cup with a 2-1 overtime victory in the second round.
