North American Soccer League club New York Cosmos will play Spanish outfit Villarreal in a tribute match for Marcos Senna.
The 37-year old Spanish midfielder spent more than a decade with Villarreal before joining the Cosmos in June and the two clubs will come together to honour his contribution to the game on November 13.
The match will be held at Villarreal’s El Madrigal in the province of Castellon and Cosmos head coach Giovanni Savarese is looking forward to the event which will be a positive for all parties involved.
"We're delighted that we have the opportunity to visit Spain at the conclusion of our season," Savarese said.
"It's great that Marcos will be able to play in front of the Villarreal fans once again and for our squad it's a chance to play one of the top teams in La Liga."
