Twenty-three years ago, Nigerian midfield legend and former captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, scored a wonder-goal against legendary German goalkeeper, Oliver Kahn. The World Cup winning goalkeeper has admitted the goal still makes him feel dizzy.
Kahn admitted this today, exactly 23 years after, in a tweet composed in his native German language (Deutsche).
The tweet translate as: “Exactly 23 years is the sensational goal from Jay-Jay Okocha today ago – and I’m still dizzy …,”
At the time, the former Bayern Munich goalkeeper was playing for Karlsruhe while Okocha played for Eintracht Frankfurt.
Okocha who came on as a second half substitute for Frankfurt in the German Bundesliga clash, provided an assist and scored his wonder goal, by dribbling the entire back-line of Karlsruhe before slotting the ball past Kahn to secure a 3 – 1 win.
