Former Super Eagles midfielder, Finidi George has explained what prompted his goal celebration style at the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

In an interview with TribalFootball, Finidi stated that he could hardly explain what prompted the goal celebration.

His words; ‘My celebration at the World Cup was not planned.

‘I did not even know that I was going to score at the world cup, but after scoring the goal, I wanted to celebrate and I just did that spontaneously, and till date people still talk about the celebration.

‘I just got carried away after the scoring a goal at the World Cup.’

Nigeria, however, was knocked out in the Round of 16 by Italy after losing 2-1.
