Ex-Super Eagles captain Austin Jay-Jay Okocha clocked 45 on Tuesday.

The talented midfield maestro was a key member of the Nigerian team that won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1994 and stunned the universe later at the World Cup.

Okocha made 75 appearances for his country and was skipper between 2002 and 2006.

At club level, he enjoyed remarkable success too especially at Paris Saint-Germain and Bolton Wanderers.

Football fans across the globe joined forces to celebrate the Nigerian legend.
