Amokachi to Line-up with Jay Jay Okocha and Play for Nigeria Again

Former Super Eagles forward, Daniel Amokachi, has expresseed his desire to play for Nigeria again. Amokachi will feature in the Star Sixes tournament which commences in July.

Star Sixes is a six-a-side tournament for former internationals and is scheduled to hold at the O2 Arena from July 13 to July 16.

Amokachi who scored 13 times in 44 games for the Super Eagles, will join Jay-Jay Okocha in the Nigeria squad which has been drawn in Group B alongside 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!”

The 1995 FA Cup winner, Amokachi will line up alongside captain and close friend Jay-Jay Okocha to face the likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Roberto Carlos and Gilberto Silva after Nigeria were drawn in Group B with Brazil, Italy and China.

Other Ex-Evertonians on show will include Don Hutchison, whose Scotland team have been drawn in the same group as Phil Neville’s England side, and Olivier Dacourt, who will play alongside Robert Pires for France.
