More former Nigeria greats like Victor Ikpeba, Garba Lawal and Celestine Babayaro will feature for the country at this year’s Star Sixes Tournament in London.

SCORENigeria report that already former Nigeria captain Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha and Daniel Amokachi have confirmed their availability for the legends’ competition.

The competition will be played between July 13 and 16 in London.

Nigeria, who will be well represented by some of the top talents from the country’s Golden Generation of 1994-96, are pitched against Brazil and Italy.

The Super Eagles won AFCON 1994 in Tunisia and made their World Cup debut few months later in the United States of America.

They were only denied a place in the quarterfinals of the 1994 World Cup by eventual finalists Italy.

The core of this team will then go on to clinch an historic Olympic soccer Gold also in the USA two years later.
