Austin Jay Jay Okocha, former Nigeria and Bolton Wanderers of England captain, was at his best on Tuesday during a charity match by Bolton legends, where the Nigerian scored a hat trick.

The Bolton Wanderers legends were out for a charity game at the Macron Stadium on Tuesday, with two teams captained by John McGinlay and Tony Kelly squaring off to raise money for the club’s supporters and community trusts,

However, it was the former Nigerian captain, who stole the show as he had done so many times before, scoring thrice and showcasing his trademark trickery to the applause of thousands of fans at the stadium.

The first of Okocha’s goals was a throwback to his playing days, with the Nigerian midfielder slinking in from the left before bending an absolute pearler inside the near post from 20 yards out.
