World Cup winner Joan Capdevila is among the final five legends to confirm their places at Star Sixes, which begins in London this week.
Capdevila was in the Spain side exactly seven years ago as they became world champions in South Africa, following victory over Holland. He also helped Spain claim the Euro 2008 title.
The former Deportivo La Coruna and Villarreal left-back is the tenth player to join the Spanish side for Star Sixes, and will again link up with teammates from those two successful summers, Carles Puyol and Carlos Marchena, for the inaugural Star Sixes tournament at The O2.
Meanwhile, Vincent Candela, who was in the France squad when they lifted the World Cup on home soil in 1998, and the European Championship two years later, is the last name unveiled in Robert Pires’s Les Bleus squad.
Candela, a Serie A winner during an eight-year spell with Roma, also had a brief stint in the Premier League with Bolton Wanderers, where he played alongside Nigeria Star Sixes skipper Jay-Jay Okocha.
France’s opening night opponents, Germany, who they face on Thursday 13 July, have also completed their ten-man squad, adding the final three players to join Michael Ballack’s men.
Ex-VfB Stuttgart midfielder Maurizio Gaudino, who also played on loan at Manchester City during the 1994-95 season, comes into the side along with former VfL Bochum schemer Dariusz Wosz, who collected 17 caps for Germany, as well as seven for East Germany.
And goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand, who spent the majority of his career at VfB Stuttgart where he won the Bundesliga title in 2007, is drafted into the side as a replacement for Jens Lehmann.
Hildebrand played seven times for Germany and was included in squads from Euro 2004 and 2006 World Cup as an understudy to Lehmann and Oliver Kahn.
The 121st player to sign up for Star Sixes is former Northern Ireland international Maik Taylor, who will operate as reserve goalkeeper for all 12 nations.
Taylor will be on standby to deputise should any of the countries’ goalkeepers be ruled out by injury or illness.
The former Fulham, Birmingham and Southampton keeper was capped 88 times at international level and is currently Northern Ireland’s goalkeeping coach.
So, with all players now confirmed, all 12 teams are raring to go for Star Sixes and hoping to be the first winners of the trophy this coming weekend.
