Legendary Nigerian international, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha‘s, has recalled the sensational goal he scored against Oliver Kahn in a Bundesliga fixture, 23 years ago.
Okocha, disclosed how he felt after scoring the goal against the German football legend, when Eintracht Frankfurt faced off against Karlsruhe in 1993.
“When I started the trickery, I never thought of the consequence, until when after the game, my coach, Klaus Toppmöller, told me I will never play again for his team, had I missed that chance.
“That was when i realized the kind of risk I took, for me I thought I was doing my job. To be honest i never wanted to hold on unto the ball that long.”
He added: ” Myself and Kahn were very good friends until I scored that goal, and he doesn’t pick my calls anymore,” Okocha told the press on his two-day legendary tour
The goal was voted as 1993 Goal of the year by viewers of Sportschau (an ARD German TV sports programme).
