Jay Jay Okocha
Club:Paris Saint-Germain
Position:Midfielder

Jay Jay Okocha has been one of the leading lights of the Nigeria squad over the past decade.

He began his career in Nigeria, before moving to Germany and eventually getting his big break at Eintracht Frankfurt.

The midfielder helped Nigeria to the African Nations Cup in 1994 and was part of the side that won Olympic gold in 1996.

Sandwiched in between those years, he moved to Turkish side Fenerbahce where he blossomed.

Fenerbahce went on to win the Turkish league the following year.

Okocha subsequently moved on again to top French side Paris Saint-Germain for about 10m, where he has remained ever since.

The 2002 World Cup will be Okocha's third, having appeared in 1994 and 1998.
