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.

  1. kanu is the best player ever to come from african continent. He had more medals in his ketty than any african player. His immense talents and skills are so far the best.


  2. Kanu a.k.a (PAPILO) is a talented footballer who makes dramatic change anytime he comes on the field of play. I’ll always admire respect him for his spirit of sportsmanship and philantropism.


  3. kanu is a player you can not have enough words to qualify him. he is a player who understands what it takes to be a player. the most decorated player in Africa and Nigeria to say, he has won every thing that the game gives and has invested in people who do not know how the money comes. but for the good will of a man.
    he is blessed that is his name
