The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has paid tribute to former Ghana and Nottingham Forest ahead Junior Manuel Agogo. The soccer governing body in Africa via its formal twitter account celebrated Junior Agogo for his incredible display throughout the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations.
Agogo became a cult hero in African soccer throughout the 2008 AFCON, scoring 3 goals in the match as Ghana obtain bronze which include his stunner in opposition to Nigeria in the quarter-finals.
Agogo, however, suffered a stroke, which attacked his speech and died after fighting with the illness for some time in 2019.
Despite his demise, his striking talents and special dance to recognize his goal would all the time be remembered by the football lovers.
The late Ghanaian striker scored a complete of 12 goals in the 27 matches he played for the country.
