Okocha Named Best Dribbler In World Cup In 52 Years



Legendary Nigeria midfielder Austin Okocha has been revealed as the player with the most dribbles in a FIFA World Cup match in 52 years.

The rating was done by sports facts and stats website Opta Sports on their verified Twitter handle Optajoe.

According to Opta, Okocha made 15 dribbles in the Super Eagles round of 16 clash against Italy at the 1994 World Cup.

It was the most made since the 1966 World Cup in England.

“Since 1966, the most dribbles completed in a World Cup match is 15, by Jay Jay Okocha for Nigeria against Italy in July 1994,” Opta tweeted on Wednesday.


Despite playing with 10 men following the sending off of Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola, Italy came from 1-0 down to beat the Super Eagles 2-1.

Roberto Baggio scored both Italy goals after Emmanuel Amuneke had given the Eagles a first-half lead.
