    Nigerian legends, Austin Jay Jay Okocha and Daniel 'Da Bull' will be at The O2, London as they will take part in Star Sixes, a new world six-a-side tournament for former internationals from 13th -16th July 2017.

    The six-a-side world cup for former internationals will see legends such as  Alessandro Del Piero, Steven Gerrard and Roberto Carlos but Amokachi is excited that the world will see Okocha's amazing skills again.

    “Jay-Jay was one of the best African players of all time and certainly one of the most skilful, His style was unique, and I remember when Ronaldinho first played at Paris Saint-Germain he asked Jay-Jay to teach him some of his tricks," Amokachi told Star Sixes

    “Now there is a chance for a new generation of fans to see him and others up close, and it is just as exciting for me to test myself against some of the great players that I never played against. It should be really exciting, and hopefully we can have a good few days where we can form a bond, too.

    The Nigerian team at the event will parade stars like, Amokachi, Okocha, ex-Shaktar Donetsk striker, Julius Aghahowa, former Roda midfielder Garba Lawal and  ex-Chelsea defender, Celestine Babayaro. They will face Brazil, Italy and China in Group B.
