Oliver Kahn has disclosed that he is yet to recover from the wonder goal he conceded against Nigeria’s Austin Jay Jay Okocha in a Bundesliga fixture between Eintracht Frankfurt and Karlsruhe in 1993. The German legend reminisces about the former Nigeria international’s sensational goal after 23 years.
Okocha who came on as a second half substitute for Eintracht Frankfurt provided an assist and scored his wonder goal, by dribbling the entire back-line of Karlsruhe before slotting the ball past Kahn to secure a 3-1 win.
The former Bayern Munich skipper paid a tribute to the Nigerian legend as he recalled the encounter exactly 23 years after on his Twitter page.
“Exactly 23 years is the sensational goal from Jay-Jay Okocha today ago – and I’m still dizzy …,” Kahn tweeted.
The goal was voted as 1993 Goal of the year by viewers of Sportschau (an ARD German TV sports programme).
