Former Super Eagles strikers Yakubu Aiyegbeni and Daniel Amokachi were Nigeria’s scorers against China as former Nigeria internationals began their quest for glory at the inaugural edition of the Star Sixes Football Tournament in London on Thursday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The former Nigeria internationals captained by mercurial midfielder Austin Jay Jay Okocha defeated the Asians 3-2 at the O2 Arena London on Thursday night with Aiyegbeni scoring a brace while Amokachi netted one.

Aiyegbeni scored two quick goals for Nigeria before Amokachi added the third with a delicate chip over Chinese keeper Li Wei.
