Sam excited by international stars

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has welcomed the Club's decision to host the exciting international friendly between Argentina and Croatia.

The fixture, which will take place at the Boleyn Ground on the evening of Wednesday 12 November, could see the likes of Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez, Luka Modric and Mario Mandzukic appear at the home of the Hammers.

With tickets priced at just £25 for Adults and £15 for concessions, Big Sam said the whole family could enjoy a night under the floodlights watching some of the finest players in the world.


"I must say I think this is yet another exciting event at an exciting time for West Ham United," he enthused.

"For most football fans, the opportunity to see the likes of Lionel Messi in action in the flesh is one they would not want to miss. He does not play on English soil too often, so this is a chance to see one of the greatest players who has ever kicked a football on the pitch, live.

"Messi will not be the only star in action, either. Argentina have got some fantastic players, as was illustrated by them reaching the World Cup final just a few months ago. Croatia, too, have some very talented individuals with the likes of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, so this is going to be a very competitive fixture between two top international sides.

"I understand that ticket prices have been set at a very competitive level, meaning families can bring their children down to watch some of the best players in the world in action in our stadium.

"I am sure the Argentina and Croatia fans will make for quite an atmosphere, too, so the stage is certainly set for a unique occasion."
