Watch: Jay Jay Okocha v Samuel Adegbenro – Who Did it Better?

The last time a Nigerian caught the eyes of the world for a sublime solo goal in Europe was 24 years ago in Germany.

But, on Thursday in the Europa League second leg tie between Rosenborg and 2016/17 finalist Ajax, another Nigerian set the pitch alight with an amazing Solo goal.

Samuel Adegbenro came off the bench to score a brace which eventually helped Rosenborg book a place in the group stage of the competition.

Ever the impact substitute, Adegbenro was introduced in the 68 minute on Thursday – same as the first leg and scored the winner – and he scored in the 80th and 89th minutes.

But it was the second strike that forced the entire Lerkendal Stadion crowd on their feet in obeisance to the 21-year-old.

The video was shared on twitter by @MesfoufKoshary with the accompaning tweet, “Nigeria’s Samuel Adegbenro with a brilliant solo effort for Rosenborg vs Ajax, the goal could see them thru to next round of EuropaLeague.”

So what do you think, who did it better – Jay Jay v Adegbenro?
