On September 23 1984, Zamalek legend Emmanuel Quarshie scored what was one of the best goals in the Cairo giants’ history in Africa.

It was a Champions League quarter-final second leg against Zambia’s Nkana Red Devils in Cairo and eventual champions Zamalek only needed a goalless draw to qualify.

However, a vintage display by Ghana midfielder Quarshie, who scored a couple of goals including one stunning pile-driver from some 35 yards out, inspired a 5-1 win for the Whites.

Match commentator Ahmed Effat said: “GOAAAL! A bomb from Quasrhie, a bomb from Quarshie…a rocket!”

Quarshie, who was a former Ghana captain, passed away only five days ago at the age of 59 because of cancer.

Watch Emmanuel Quarshie’s thunderous strike for Zamalek 29 years ago in the highlight. His goal starts after 4 minutes:
