USA ’94 was Nigeria’s first appearance at the World Cup, and the Super Eagles showed they didn’t come to play by bulldozing their way to the second round of the competition. One of the star players who made it happen was Daniel Amokachi AKA The Bull, whose intimidating goal against Greece remains one of the best to be seen at the World Cup.
With Russia 2018 inching closer, the goal has been shortlisted for FIFA World Cup Greatest Goals. The goal, which came in stoppage time at the Foxboro Stadium in Massachusetts, brought Amokachi to the limelight and got Everton interested in him. He was later signed for £3,000,000 (now more than N1 billion).
Since FIFA is looking to select the memorable goals that will go on to the next round, Amokachi is directly competing with English football legend, Michael Owen whose goal against Argentina at the 1998 World Cup is nothing short of memorable.
