Rashidi Yekini... Forgotten In Nigeria, Remembered In Portugal (Photos)
It is so sad that we forget people when they are no longer in the spotlight or when they are no more.
As a young girl, I remember that the reason why I loved football (soccer) was because of the likes of Rashidi Yekini, Peter Rufai, Sunday Oliseh, Austin Okocha,Kanu Nwankwo, Samson Siasia, Steven Keshi, Daniel Amokachi, Amunike and so on.
I wish we would remember people who were once a source of pride to us in one way or the other as a nation. May the soul of Rashidi Yekini rest in peace and may God bless Portugal for remembering and honoring him even in death.
