Former Ghanaian striker, Junior Agogo, reportedly passed away in London on Thursday morning, according to Mirror UK.

A well-travelled player, whose career took in stints in Scotland, Egypt, the United States and Cyprus, Agogo suffered a stroke in 2015 and told a BBC documentary that he suffered from subsequent struggles with his speech.

The late Junior Agogo played for teams such as Nottingham Forest, Zamalek Sheffield Wednesday, Queens Park Ranger, Chicago Fire among other clubs before his demise. Junior Agogo sarcastically asks while conducting the interview.

Agogo made his worldwide debut for the west African country in 2006 and he went on to score 12 goals in 27 global appearances.

In some cases, it makes communications with the patient impossible.

The output earned him a move to Bristol Rovers where he spent the next three years clocking up more than 100 appearances, netting 41 times in the process before signing for Nottingham Forest on an undisclosed fee.

Following a spell with Cypriot side Apollon Limassol, he joined Scottish side Hiberian, where he retired in 2012.

Football loving Nigerians will remain Agogo for scoring the goal that sent the Super Eagles out of the quarter-finals of the 2008 Nations Cup that held in Ghana. "On behalf of the Ghanaian football fraternity, we extend our honest condolences to the family of our Black Star, Junior Agogo".
