Venezuela to play Nigeria in Miami soccer friendly


MIAMI (AP) - Soccer will come to the Miami Marlins' new ballpark for the first time Nov. 14 when Venezuela plays Nigeria in an international friendly.

The game, announced Tuesday by Marlins officials, is one of many non-baseball events planned at the ballpark, which opened this year.

The field will be regulation size, with one goal near the Marlins' dugout and the other will be in right field. Both teams are expected to be at full strength.
