Nigerian professional football manager Ndubuisi Emmanuel Egbo has written his name in the history books by becoming the first African coach to win a title with an European side.
This was after the former Super Eagles goalie helped his club Tirana to win the 2019/20 Albania League title in a remarkable style.
Egbo and his wards are also in the final of the Albania Cup and this could be another landmark achievement for the 46-year-old if his side should win it.
Tirana fans are all in joyous momentum with this latest achievement which they have been looking for since the past 11 years.

The result means Tirana currently on 69 points are now seven points ahead of Kukesi who are on 62 points with two games left to play.
Another big record for Ndubuisi Egbo is that his club will be playing in the Champions League next season and he is the first African to qualify a club for the prestigious competition.
Egbo started his football career with defunct Nitel FC of Enugu and was among the Super Eagles stars who campaigned at the 2000 and 2002 African Nations Cup.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Nigerian midfielder Azubuike Okechukwu recorded his name in the history books of football after winning the Turkish Super Lig title with Istanbul Baseksehir.
This is a great career achievement for the 23-year-old former Bayelsa United captain who only joined the Turkish side in January this year on loan.
With only one game remaining to end the season in Turkey, Istanbul Baseksehir have been named new champions thanks to their 1-0 win on Sunday, July 19, over Kayserispor.
Okechukwu is now the fifth Nigerian player to win the Turkish Super Lig title which is an incredible achievement for the former youth international.
Emmanuel Emenike, former Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo, Henry Onyekuru and Uche Okechukwu are the other Nigerian players who also won the Super Lig title.
