Last Updated: 13/07/17 7:14pm
The Star Sixes tournament kicks off at the O2 Arena live on Sky Sports 1 on Thursday night.
World Cup winner Joan Capdevila was among the final five legends to confirm their places. Capdevila was in the Spain side exactly seven years ago as they became world champions in South Africa. He also helped Spain claim the Euro 2008 title.
The former Deportivo La Coruna and Villarreal left-back was the 10th player to join the Spanish side for Star Sixes, and will again link up with team-mates 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, was the last name unveiled in Robert Pires' 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, where he played alongside Nigeria Star Sixes skipper Jay-Jay Okocha.
France's opening night opponents, Germany, completed their 10-man squad by adding three more players to Michael Ballack's roster.
Ex-Stuttgart midfielder Maurizio Gaudino, who also played on loan at Manchester City during the 1994-95 season, comes in 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 Stuttgart where he won the Bundesliga title in 2007, was drafted into the side as a replacement for Jens Lehmann.
Hildebrand played seven times for Germany and was included in squads for Euro 2004 and the 2006 World Cup as an understudy to Lehmann and Oliver Kahn.
A grand total of 120 players are confirmed for the big kick-off, with all 12 teams raring to go for Star Sixes and hoping to be the first winners of the trophy this weekend.
The 121st player to sign up for Star Sixes was 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 sidelined 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.
