Finidi George scores amazing goal

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how an awesome video emerged on social media of Enyimba FC coach, Finidi George scoring an amazing goal in training while dishing out instructions to his players.

His strike made many fans remember his days as a footballer, when he scored many brilliant goals at club level and also for the Super Eagles - Nigeria's national team.

George was undoubtedly a joy to watch on the pitch in years gone by, considering his pace, power, team spirit, and goal-scoring skills which made him an Ajax signing.

His move to the Dutch giants in 1993 was an incredible one, with the European club bringing him over from the now-defunct Nigerian club, Sharks of Port Harcourt.
