Daniel Amokachi ' Everton F.C. and Nigeria ' Football Signed Cards Autograph £5.00
This is an In Person signed white card 5" x 3" by the former Everton and Nigeria footballer.
Daniel Owefin Amokachi nicknamed "The Bull" (born December 30, 1972 in Kaduna) is a former football striker from Nigeria. While playing for Ranchers Bees, Amokachi was discovered by Nigerian national team coach Clemens Westerhof, who brought the talented player to the 1990 African Nations Cup, and soon Amokachi moved to play for Club Brugge in Belgium. He competed in the new format of the Champions League, and became the first player to score in the competition, after his goal secured a 1-0 win in the opening match in the group stage against CSKA Moscow. Performing well in Belgium and at the 1994 World Cup, Everton F.C. became interested in Amokachi and their manager Mike Walker signed him for a fee of £3,000,000 ($4,700,000). He went on to win the FA Cup with Everton in 1995, famously infuriating manager Joe Royle by bringing himself on as a substitute then proceeding to score two goals in the semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur. He appeared in the final only briefly, late on, as a substitute but is remembered fondly for his beret wearing celebrations. He remained at Everton until the end of the 1995-96 season, when he was transferred to Besiktas of Turkey for a fee of £1.75million. He had failed to make the impact at Goodison Park that many fans had been hoping for, and had been unable to win a regular place in the first team, as Paul Rideout and Duncan Ferguson were firmly established as Everton's two strikers at this stage.
