Kanu Nwankwo, A living legend

Adeola Aderounmu.

Kanu’s 37th minute goal was all Portmouth needed to clinch the 2008 FA CUP. Kanu is truly the golden boy. He is the most decorated African footballer ever.

U-17 gold in Japan 1993.
Olympic gold in Atlanta 1996.

He has won Champions league with Ajax….and many other cup glories in Italy and England.

Another FA cup glory at the tail end of a wonderful career coupled with “man of the match performance” and scorer of the only goal in 90 minutes of regular play time is a very wonderful way to silent his critics.

Kanu, what next?

Congrats to you, John Utaka, the rest of the team and your coach Harry.
