How I Came About My Goal Celebration At 1994 World Cup -finidi by Mecka: 9:48am On Jun 10
Former Super Eagles midfielder, Finidi George has
revealed what prompted his goal celebration style
at the 1994 FIFA World Cup.
Recall that Finidi netted Nigeria’s opening goal in
the second group match against Greece and
trotted towards the corner flag to celebrate the
now-infamous urinating dog goal celebration.
Finidi in an interview with TribalFootball stated
that he could hardly explain what prompted the
goal celebration.
“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.

seems he got carried away with d goal on a big stage n I can relate very well bcoz it once happened to me..
scored in the finals of a street competition back then in ajegunle n was very happy...
dt goal came in d dieing minute of that finals....I got carried away n pull off my jersey n even my shorts n was running around like a mad man before I finally ended up doing dt cr7 "balls" celebration..
I was guven a straight red for stripping, my guys wanted to cause trouble n wasted a lot of time bcoz it was 300k involved bk den n d card still stood....
d ref added extra 10 mins due to wastee time, dey equalized n still won via p.k because of a man down...
DTS how i turned from hero to villain within 15mins n wasnt called again in any competition around d hood...
