The Brazilian maestro’s remarkable performances earned him a spot in the prestigious FIFA World Cup All-Star Team. During the peak of his career, Ronaldinho was widely regarded as the best player in the world, securing the FIFA World Player of the Year accolade twice, in 2004 and 2005.

Inspired by Ronaldinho’s breathtaking moments on the field, Dennis disclosed his admiration during a chance encounter with the football legend at a private gathering. The Nigerian international captured the special moment and shared it on his Twitter account, accompanied by the caption: “Meet the reason why I’m a football player today, the real GOAT. I’m speechless.”

Dennis, who currently plays for Nottingham Forest in the English Premier League, narrowly avoided relegation in the previous season. He did not receive a call-up for the Super Eagles’ upcoming match against Sierra Leone but is relishing his extended vacation before the 2023/24 season.
