Okocha joins Ronaldo, Zidane To Fight Against Poverty

By Johnny Edward:

Former Super Eagles skipper and Delta State FA Chairman Austin Jay Jay Okocha joined a host of footballing legends to raise money for charity in the 12th annual Match Against Poverty.

The Ex-Eagles star who starred alongside Ronaldo,Zinedine Zidane,Clarence Seedorf, Fabian Barthez, Gianluca Zambrotta, David Trezeguet Kurt Zouma and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang curled in an effort as his star-studded side defeated Saint-Etienne 9-7 at the at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Monday night.

Like many charity friendly matches defending was at a premium, but goals were certainly not as the match at the Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium reached double figures.

One of the goals of the game came from the super cool Seedorf who earned his name on the score sheet with a sublime chip.

Former French international David Trezeguet also played and scored in the match, but it was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who shone the brightest as he grabbed a hat-trick during his side’s 9-7 defeat.
