Stu Posted March 25, 2009 Share Posted March 25, 2009 Think of the players who have burst onto the scene from Nigeria over the years, particularly the last 10 or so, Daniel Amokachi Tijani Babangida Celestine Babayaro Nwankwo Kanu Garba Lawal Jay-Jay Okocha Sunday Oliseh Taribo West Chinedu Obasi Victor Nsofor Obinna Victor Anichebe Obafemi Martins Nwankwo Kanu John Obi Mikel Taye Taiwo Joseph Yobo Finidi George Julius Aghahowa Victor Ikpeba Yakubu Augustine Okocha They've got a relatively 'easy' qualification continent in Africa (only CONCAF is easier) for the World Cup but they've only made the second round twice (knocked out both times). As for one of the better (more developed?) nations in Africa, it's amazing to see that they've only won the African Cup of Nations twice (1980 and 1994). 1994-98 was supposedly their golden era with an Olympic Gold... What a joke country! Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
