Copied from Twitter.

Joe Erico fondly called 'Jogo Bonito' has sadly passed away.
He was coach of NEPA FC Lagos where he introduced the tiki-tika back in the early '90s.
He was part of the coaching crew of Ahmodu Shuaibu and Stephen Keshi that qualified Nigeria for the 2002 World Cup.

He was "Joseph Eric" fondly called "Joe Erico" and was known (in the newspapers) as the "Apostle of Jogo Bonito".

May he RIP. :sad:

May God bless his soul, and give his family strength to bear the loss.

May the Lord comfort his family.

His name hardly comes up when discussing Nigeria's top goalkeepers.

Rest In Peace -- jogo bonito apostle.

I met the guy in the first decade of this century (Not sure the year). He provided leads to several other guys (most dead now) who were vital in a book on the Eagles. Erico was a really good guy to spend time with and talk. May his soul Rest In Peace.

Mostly overshadowed by Fregene and then Essien and Okala. His appearances were, in large part, because of injury-enforced absence to Okala at the 1976 AFCON. He was really a very nice guy and may have turned into a far better coach than he was for his playing career. Really nice fellow.

For which he helped the team with a medal playing in all the matches, the first time Nigeria would win an AFCON medal.
