Nigeria and Hapoel Beer Sheva midfielder, John Ogu gave Israeli fans a double dose of excitement on Saturday, October 3, 2015 when he proposed to his girlfriend on the pitch.
Ogu had his girlfriend, Adaolisa brought unto the field of play seconds after his club defeated Maccabi Petah Tikva 5-2 at home and while the confused lady was still trying to figure out what was happening, the 27-year-old went down on one knee asking for her hand in marriage.
This threw the packed stadium into excitement as a thunderous applause rented the air and his teammates gathered round him in admiration.
The excited midfielder later posted on his Instagram account: “Thank you great God. Great result tonight and above all she said YES!!!!!”
This is truly Nigerian. We know how to steal the show!
