Former Nigeria ex-internationals Daniel Amokachi and Austin Jay Jay Okocha will return to the field to take part in Star Sixes, a new world six-a-side tournament for former internationals taking place at The O2, London, from July 13-16.
The Nigeria 1994 AFCON winners will line-up alongside the likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Roberto Carlos and Gilberto Silva after Nigeria were drawn in Group B with Brazil, Italy and China.
“I can’t wait to get started,” Amokachi told evertonfc.com .
“It’s a great platform to play with and against ex-teammates and some legends of the game that played in the same generation.
“Jay-Jay Okocha first approached me about it. We’ve known each other for a long time, even before him I was very close friends with his older brother. We’re more like family than friends.
“It will be a great event and hopefully I will get to see plenty of Evertonians there. I always try to keep up my fitness, so I’m ready to play. Let’s see what happens”.
