Ex-Super Eagles skippers Nwankwo Kanu and Austin Jay Jay Okocha have both been listed to feature in Samuel Eto’o's charity match in Antalaya, Turkey on 16 July, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The charity match in honour of the Eto’o foundation which will clock ten years will see a selection of top players facing a Turkish all-star team, a statement on Antalyaspor's website said on Thursday.
The Cameroon striker revealed that some of his ex-Chelsea team mates like Eden Hazard, Demba Ba and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba will partake.
Eto’o’s team will include top players like Leo Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez, Diego Maradona, Eden Hazard, Andrés Iniesta, Drogba and Arda Turan.
“Samuel Eto’o will host a friendly game on 16 July 2016 at the Antalya Arena stadium. Messi, Neymar, Suarez, Maradona, Hazard, Iniesta, Demba Ba, Drogba and Arda Turan will be some of the names in his dream team," the statement said.
Eto’o surprised many by joining Antalyaspor last summer and had 20 goals as well as six assists in 32 league games for the club, who finished 10th on the Turkish Lig log with 42 points.
Eto’o has won two Champions League titles, three La Liga titles at Barcelona as well as the treble – including the Champions League, Serie A and Italian Cup – at Inter.
