Star Sixes Review: Spain trash Nigeria as the Legend’s tournament reach final stages


Africa’s only representative Nigeria were knocked out after being thrashed 8-1 by Spain in the quarterfinal. Nigeria made it to the last 8 as third-best loser from the group stages.

➡ Steven Gerard’s goals were not enough as England were also dumped out of the competition by Denmark.

➡ Brazil are the only non-European nation left in the competition and they redeemed their 7-1 defeat at the 2014 World Cup to Germany with a 3-1 victory against the Germans in the quarter final.

➡ Brazil are the only South American team in the competition, meaning we were denied the opportunity of seeing Argentina greats Maradona, Riquelme, Ortega, Simeone and co.

  Kano Pillars are 2017 Gold Cup champions, wins 2nd title in 3years

➡ Over 100 goals have been scored in the tournament, with Italy’s Paolo Di Canio having the honour of scoring the 100th.

➡ The European teams have dominated the competition with 3 of the 4 semifinalists coming from Europe.
