NEW YORK -- Ecuador and Greece will play the first soccer game at Citi Field, an exhibition on June 7.

Ranked 55th, Ecuador is preparing for the Copa America in Argentina, where it has first-round matches Paraguay (July 3), Venezuela (July 9) and defending champion Brazil (July 13).

The Mets said Thursday that the goals will be along the third-base line and in right field.
