Ex-Nigeria captain and Arsenal legend Nwankwo Kanu has been listed to feature in a legends match at Emirates Stadium on September 3, with net proceeds to be donated to the Arsenal Foundation, Completesportsnigeria.com can report.
The match which falls on an international weekend will see the ‘Arsenal Legends’ face ‘Milan Glorie’ in a 90-minute exhibition game featuring former players from both clubs.
A host of legends from both clubs have already confirmed their intention to play in what will be a star-studded football game.
Expected to feature in the exhibition game are also players like Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires, Freddie Ljungberg, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Filippo Inzaghi and Cafu.
Ticket prices start from £20 and £10 for concessions.
The match date falls on an international weekend so does not clash with an Arsenal first-team fixture.
Kanu was recently involved in the testimonial for Joseph Yobo in Port Harcourt.
