Tragedy has befallen the football community in Nigeria as a former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Wilfred Agbonavbare, lost the battle against cancer?on Tuesday?in Spain.
The 48-year-old goal tender who was??part of the squad that lifted the African Cup Of Nations in 1994 and helped qualify Nigeria for its first ever world cup in USA, died in the early hours of?Tuesday.
Officials of his former club, Rayo Vallecano, had raised money to fly in Agbonavbare?s three children from Nigeria to see their bedridden father alive, for perhaps the last time.
