BY foxsports • February 25, 2010

World Cup host South Africa will play a friendly against Denmark on June 5 in its final warmup match before the tournament begins.

South Africa coach Carlos Alberto Parreira says he had hoped to play Brazil, but added that teams are reluctant to play friendlies against the hosts.

Parreira is still looking for more teams to play before South Africa's World Cup campaign begins on June 11 against Mexico. The hosts will also face Uruguay and France in Group A.

Denmark will play the Netherlands, Cameroon and Japan in Group E.
