Researches shows that organized football began in Nigeria since 1945, when Nigeria Football Association was created and since then the country have had some great players you can’t really ignore.
We found out that no matter what criteria we used to compile the list of “the Best of the Best Nigerian footballers of all time,’ it will still remain arguable.
We have the likes of Austin Okocha, Teslim Balogun,Rasheed Yekini, Taribo West, Nwanko Kanu, Stephen Keshi, Anua Lawal Rigogo, Victor Ikpeba, Emmanuel Amunike, Segun Odegbami to choose from and some top foreign artiste who have never represented the the country at the national level.
Would you believe if we make a list of Top 10 best Nigerian footballers ever, the likes of Finidi George, Uche Okechukwu, Muda Lawal, Emmanuel Okala, Daniel Amokachie, Sunday Oliseh, Vincent Enyeama and co will not make the list of the “10 Best of the best.”
In our own wisdom, we thought it wasn’t correct to drop names of players that won such top most awards like CAF African footballer of the year and include the names of those who couldn’t win such award in their time but played some big roles in their career.
So back to the question
Who Do you Think Is The Best Footballer That Nigerian Has Ever Produced?
