Austin Okocha, Nigerian legend, runs live commentary of his goal against Kahn

Austin Okocha might have not had a trophy-laden career worthy of his greatness but the former Nigerian international would be always remembered as an incredible genius who brought class to modern football.

The Super Eagles legend made a name for himself in Germany while playing for Eintracht Frankfurt before switching to Paris-Saint-Germain in 1998.

He later moved to England where he made remarkable landmarks with Bolton Wanderers before hanging his boots after a short spell with Hull City.

But while playing for Eintracht Frankfurt, Okocha scored perhaps the greatest goal of his career against former world best goalkeeper, Oliver Kahn.

In a match he came in as a substitute, Jay-Jay dribbled the entire back-line of Karlsruhe including Kahn before firing the ball into the net to secure a 3-1 win for Frankfurt.

The goal was voted as 1993 Goal of the year by viewers of Sportschau (an ARD German TV sports programme).
