He is gangly and wins lots of medals

He is long and gangly and he never looks good doing anything, but Portsmouth's Kanu might be one of the most underrated players in the history of English football.

On Saturday, Kanu became one of the few players to get his third FA Cup winners medal. Kanu scored the winner in South Coast side 1-0 winner over Championship side Cardiff.

During his career in Europe, Kanu has won the: Champions League, UEFA Cup, three Eredivisie Championships, two EPL titles, a Community Shield, and three FA Cups. He is the only current Premiership player to have won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup, Premiership, FA Cup and an Olympic Gold Medal. People fail to realize the great career he has had.

Any other player with three winners medal would be treated like a hero, but not the gangly Nigerian. During his years in English football he has dazzled fans with his great touch.

But Kanu biggest contribution might come in a different area. The big Nigerian was one of the first Africans to really call the EPL home. Without Kanu players like Essien, Drogba, Muntari, Utaka, and Mikel might have never been part of the greatest league in the world
