Portsmouth was the last club Nwankwo Kanu played for.


After leaving West Brom, he joined the club as a free agent in the summer of 2006 on a one-year deal.


He made his debut against Blackburn Rovers on 19 August 2006, coming on as a substitute and nearly scoring a hattrick. He scored twice and missed a penalty in that game. He finished the season as Portsmouth’s top scorer with 12 goals and signed another deal at the club.


The following season, Kanu helped the club win the FA Cup, scoring in the semi-final against West Brom and also in the final against Cardiff City. He was named “Player of the Match” in the final.


In the 2008-09 season, Portsmouth achieved European football for the first time in their history and featured in the UEFA Cup. Kanu scored in a 2-2 draw against Milan but they failed to progress to the next round after amassing just four points in their group.


Portsmouth got relegated to the Championship in the 2009-10 season and further got relegated to the League One in the 2011-12 season.


Kanu left the club in the summer of 2012 after scoring 28 goals in 167 appearances.
