Oliver Khan Recalls Okocha’s Humiliation 23 Years After, Still Feels Dizzy

Former Germany and Bayern Munich goalkeeping legend, Oliver Khan, has said that he is yet to recover from the wonder goal he conceded against former Nigeria international, Austin Jay Jay Okocha.

Coming on as a second-half substitute for Eintracht Frankfurt in a 1993 Bundesliga game against Karlsruhe, with the game at 1-1, Okocha provided the assist which led to Frankfurt taking a 2-1 lead.

Then minutes later, Okocha scored his wonder goal, dribbling the entire back-line of Karlsruhe before slotting the ball past Khan to give Frankfurt a 3-1 win.

The goal was voted as 1993 Goal of the Year by viewers of Sportschau (an ARD German TV sports programme).

Reminiscing on the goal, Khan confessed that he is still dazed by the goal.

“Exactly 23 years, sensational goal from Jay-Jay Okocha. Here today – and still dizzy…” Khan wrote on his Twitter handle
