">The French club's Twitter handle posted a video of the the former midfielder congratulating the Parisians for making it to the tournament's showpiece, and wishing them good luck as they take on  Bayern Munich at the Estádio do Sport Lisboa.

The Super Eagles legend played for PSG from 1998 to 2002 but he is fondly remembered in German football for the wonder goal he scored for Eintracht Frankfurt against ex-Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn who was defending the colours of Karlsruher SC during the 1992-93 Bundesliga season.

Okocha left Karlsruher defenders dazed in the goal, as well as repeatedly rounding Kahn before slotting home to leave the German red-faced.
