Portuguese National Football Team to Host Charity Match for Tsunami Victims

Portugal's national football (soccer) team will host a match to raise funds to aid victims of the tsunami disaster in Asia.

The president of the Portuguese Football Federation says Portugal's national team will play a squad made up of players from the Asian nations hit by last weekend's devastating tsunami.

The match will be played during the first two weeks of January at Lisbon's 65,000 seat Stadium of Light.

Money raised from ticket sales for the game will be donated to charities working to aid victims of the earthquake-triggered disaster, which may have killed as many as 150,000 people.
