It was celebration galore for Eintracht Frankfurt Football Club of Germany and their fans across the world as they clinch the Europa Cup yesterday at the Seville stadium, Spain.
Frankfurt came from a goal down to grab an equalizer and make it 1-1 through Rafael Borre. The German side stretch the game to extra time and penalty which saw them winning by 5-4 after former Arsenal and Juventus player, Aaron Ramsey missed his kick.
Meanwhile, the celebration was not restricted to Germany alone, it was also celebrated in Nigeria by no other person but former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha.
The former Super Eagles midfield maestro played for the German side during his early days in his footballing career where he shone like a million stars.
However, Okocha seems to be the only Nigerian that supported the Germans as many others were rooting for Rangers Football Club of Scotland to carry the day because of the presence of three Super Eagles players in their folds – the trio of Joe Aribo, Leon Balogun and Calvin Bassey.
Meanwhile, out of the three players, only Bassey and Aribo played the match while Balogun was on the bench. Incidentally, Aribo was the one that scored the only goal for Rangers but unfortunately, after defeating two other German sides, Liepzig and Borrusia Dortmund, they lost the final to Frankfurt FC.
