 “I expect an unreserved apology from @SuperSportTV tomorrow morning for their commentator who said "Late Peter Rufai" when the man is alive and active,” @Deji_OoniAbj wrote.

“When Nigeria refuses to honor our Legends like other countries do theirs. It took a commentator calling Peter Rufai “Late” on supersports 9 for us to remember him.  Tragic,”  @Biimpeh wrote.

“I think the commentator is depressing and absent minded. Which one is "The late great Peter Rufai? Dodo mayana is not dead... I can't believe these rubbish commentary,” @youngichu wrote.

1983–1998Nigeria 65 (1)
* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only
He competed professionally in Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain, in a senior career that lasted twenty years.

Rufai represented Nigeria in two World Cups and as many Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.

Club careerEdit

Born in Lagos, Rufai started his career in his country, playing with Stationery Stores F.C. and Femo Scorpions. He moved to Benin in 1986, with AS Dragons FC de l'Ouémé.

At a more professional level Rufai spent six years in Belgium, with K.S.C. Lokeren Oost-Vlaanderen[1] and K.S.K. Beveren, although he appeared sparingly. In the 1993–94 season he played 12 matches for Dutch neighbours Go Ahead Eagles, which finished 12th in the Eredivisie.

In 1994, Rufai started a Portuguese adventure with S.C. Farense. In his first year, he was instrumental as the Algarve side only conceded 38 goals in 34 matches, qualifying to the UEFA Cup for the first time ever. His solid performances earned him a transfer to La Liga, but he struggled to start for lowly Hércules CF during his stay, in an eventual relegation.

However, Rufai signed with established Deportivo de La Coruña the ensuing summer, backing up another African, Jacques Songo'o, for two seasons – this included keeping a clean sheet in a January 1998 home win against CD Tenerife (1–0) as the Cameroonian was suspended.[2] He then returned to Portugal for one final year, with modest Gil Vicente FC, also being second-choice.

Rufai returned to Spain in 2003, settling in the country and opening a goalkeeper's school.[2]

International careerEdit

Rufai earned 65 caps for Nigeria, and represented the nation at two FIFA World Cups, always as starter: 1994 (Nigeria's first ever appearance, where he also acted as captain) and 1998,[3] also helping the Super Eagles win the 1994 African Cup of Nations in Tunisia.[4]

On 24 July 1993, during a CAN qualifier against Ethiopia, Rufai scored his country's last goal from a penalty kick, in a 6–0 home win.

Personal life

Rufai was the son of a tribal king in the region of Idimu. In early 1998, as his father died, he was allowed by his club (Deportivo) to return to Nigeria to discuss the succession, but turned down the status for himself.

Rufai's oldest son, Senbaty, played as a midfielder, having tried for Sunshine Stars F.C. in the Nigeria Premier League.

That is what you get when you chose the wrong pegs to fill the wrong holes, the most qualified are roaming the streets, while the educated dunces are occupying their supposed to be positions. When people like late Ernest Okonkwo and co were there , you would prefer listening to the radio live commentary while watching matches live on television, what do we have today? group of unqualified sports commentators in the studios forming foreign accents , with their female counterparts giving us bed room voice all in the name of radio sports presentation. Now is good, very soon they will name Muhamad Buhari as one of the players on the pitch. Ernest Okonkwo would covering his face in the grave. RIP Nigeria .

I used to think he kept for Abiola Babes at some point in time.

e started his career with Stationary Stores of Lagos before moving to Femo Scorpions. He later moved abroad, first to Benin Republic in 1986 with AS Dragons FC de l'Ouémé.

In Europe, Rufai played for K.S.C. Lokeren Oost-Vlaanderen and K.S.K. Beveren in Belgium, before moving to Go Ahead Eagles in Netherlands.

Rufai also played in Spain with Deportivo de La Coruña and also in Portugal for Gil Vicente FC.

It was however with the Super Eagles that Rufai really made his name.

He made his debut in 1984 and went on make 65 appearances for Nigeria.

His penalty save in Maroc 1988 in the semi-final against Algeria got his name in Nigerian football folklore before he went on to win the 1994 African cup of Nations in Tunisia.

Rufai represented Nigeria at two FIFA World Cup: in US 94 which was Nigeria's first ever appearance and 1998 in France.
