JFA planning charity game to help quake victims

The Japan Football Association said Monday that J. League first-division side Albirex Niigata and a select group of current and former Japan internationals are set to play a friendly match for earthquake victims in Niigata next month.

The match, which will feature the "Zico Japan Dream Team," will be held Dec. 4 at Niigata Stadium Big Swan in the hopes of providing support to the residents of Niigata Prefecture, which has been hit by deadly earthquakes since late October that have claimed the lives of 39 people.
