Okocha Signs Off in Style

Okocha Signs Off in Style

Former Bolton captain Jay Jay Okocha scored a late winning goal in his own testimonial game as Nigeria beat a World XI 2-1. Portsmouth`s Kanu scored the opening goal for the Super Eagles in the first half, with Okocha playing for an opposition side which included El Hadji Diouf, Sully Muntari and Benjani Mwaruwaru.

Daniel Amokachi equalised just after half-time, but with the clock ticking down, Okocha who had switched sides at half-time, fired home the winner just before the end, to bring down the curtain on a glittering career.

More power to King Kanu! Still only worth his one year contract extension mind.

Well done JJ. Shame you couldn't score for us in your time at Hull but your contribution was well valued. Thank you for setting up all of our goals at least. Hope your life after playing football is as fruitful as when you were playing. Good Luck JJ from Hull!

Bolton Put to to Sword by Sharp's Blades

Bolton were shown up as Billy Sharp scored in either half to hand us defeat in Yorkshire.

Sharp scored his first, finding space betweem the centre backs and finishing with aplomb, before adding his second from the spot with 20 minutes to go

For large parts Bolton, who were without Gary Madine after he wasn't even named in the squad, were awful. The back three didn't work, while the long balls weren't being held up by Conor Wilkinson.

It was an awful performance. Mike Dean w
