Nigerian football legend, former Super Eagles captain and manager, Stephen Keshi who passed away almost two years ago would have been 56 today and is being celebrated by Google as one of Africa’s foremost football legends even in death.
Google created a doodle of the late former Nigeria coach, on its opening page on Tuesday to celebrate what he would have been at 56.
Google said the doodle was to recognise the legacy of the former coach Super Eagles captain who died on June 7, 2016, at 54.
Doodles are the fun and spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.
The doodle, which will be viewed in all African countries, illustrates the unique achievement of Keshi, who won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations as player in and as a coach in 2013.
The author of Things Fall Apart Chinua Achebe (deceased) was another notable personality honoured by Google in the past.
“Keshi is one of only two men to win the Africa Cup of Nations as both a player and a manager, a testament to his wit, talent, and love for the sport.”
The late Mr. Keshi is survived by four children and his mother.
