Google celebrates Nigerian football hero Samuel Okwaraji on his birthday with a doodle.
The tech giant company shows the unique achievement of the football icon who slumped and died at the age of 25 in the 77th minute of a World Cup qualification match against Angola at the Lagos National Stadium on 12 August 1989.
The cause of Okwaraji’s death was later discovered to be a congestive heart failure.

Doodles are changes made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists etc.
Samuel Okwaraji who never played for any Nigerian club was also a qualified lawyer who had a masters in international law from the Pontifical Lateran University of Rome.
Thanks so much Google for keeping us abreast with history
