NFF tweets Tribute to in Memory of late Samuel Okwaraji

The Nigeria Football Federation has paid tribute to the memory of Sam Okwaraji, who slumped during an international match for Nigeria and was later pronounced dead on this day in 1989.

Okwaraji was 25 and one of Nigeria’s promising stars at the time of his demise.

 


His last game for the Eagles was a 1990 World Cup qualifier against Angola’s Palancas Negras at the National Stadium in Lagos.

The NFF Tweeted on Sunday:

We remember former Super Eagles midfielder #SamuelOkwaraji who passed on to glory on this day in 1989. He was such a patriot in the truest sense of the word. Keep resting Samuel Somtochukwu Okwaraji ( 19 May 1964 – 12 August 1989) #WeRememberOkwaraji
