Aghahowa sure knew how to celebrate! The NSFW part comes at 30 seconds. Naija has changed surely.

First of all, aghawonder wasn’t a one goal wonder. He actually performed for us in that 1999 - 2002 era. Unfortunately, he wasn’t consistent and was allegedly person papa (if you know) now, look at aghawonder a player that scored only 1 World Cup goal and how high he is held in Nigerian supporters mind compare that to the disrespect that musa gets despite scoring 4 World Cup goals. My guy, to score 4 World Cup goals isn’t beans

He wasn't a one goal wonder kid, and had a solid run in the SE though somewhat short. His problem was he spent the best years of his career in Ukraine and moved to the EPL late in his career.

I also have a feeling he shaved some years of his reported age which may be why his career seemed so short. I have no evidence to back that claim though. Wonder how his career would have turned out of he made it to Europe when he was truly "18 or 19".

What a cross from Yobo who sadly retired following that game leaving his entire career as a Super Eagles as the greatest what-if of all time.

Aghahowa shaved 13 years off his real age.

He has also scored more World Cup goals than the whole of East Africa combined.

I always liked Sorunmu .... and I still like him now ....

.... but even when I was watching him during his prime years, never mind looking back from the future, I always got the impression that a lot of the goals he conceded .... well .... lets just say I feel Enyeama and Rufai in their respective primes would not have conceded those goals.

I used language like "got the impression" and "I feel" because there is no scientific way to be certain that another keeper would have saved any particular goal conceded by a keeper .... but .... its just .... sometimes the goals Sorunmu conceded seemed kind of soft.

He'd make all these saves, no problem, but then he'd concede to an Ogoloesque shot. Or two.

I was very much 98 Rufai that year, was unfit played too few games that year, should have been sidelined for the rest of the AFCON after the Ghana game etc.

Thanks for your glaring honesty. I joined C.E on the day he scored that cheeky j goal. Sadly , he was at the twilight of his career. Okocha was at least in his early 30's in the video.
Eagle, How did the match end anyway?

I bet all you gentlemen have forgotten the pre-2002 World Cup friendly we played against Kenya in May of 2002.

The match ended 3-0 with goals from Pascal Ojigwe (remember him?), Wilson Oruma and Femi Opabunmi.

Among the players to see action that day were Seyi Olajengbesi, Rabiu Baita, Christopher Kanu and Eric Ejiofor.

It is almost like we were not taking the match seriously.

We did not...

Most of the players for the WC 2002 squad were already set...
But it gave coaches an opportunity to look at fringe players (it was Enyeama's debut btw).

Have no clue of his 'real' age, but seriously doubt that...
Julius was still with Shakhtar Donetsk until 2012, that would have put him in his 40s.

Furthermore, that would mean that he made his SE debut at 31...
Why would he be an international quality player in his 30s but not so in his 20s?

The only thing a waste pipe like you excels in is misusing your mouth. You wouldn’t make a stupid, thoughtless statement like that if you had even a smither of talent in your pathetic body, moron :!:


Cheers.

TTK's posts always make me laugh because of the Cheers signature. Like here he woozes you in two sentences but then adds the cheers like you're old friends.

So in 2002 he was already 33 years old?
Which 33 yr old do you know that can effortlessly do those kind of multiple backflips?
Even professional gymnasts have retired by that age!

That is 9 years after I independence:rotf: you are a huge joke...so 2002 minus 1969 is 33.. :rotf: so today you are telling us Aghahowa is 50 years old....

You are full of it....

The Kenyan squad was a "B" squad. We did not want to risk injury. :biggrin:
