World Football governing body FIFA has highlighted the Super Eagles of Nigeria’s past World Cup successes with a video posted on its website, AOIFootball.com can report.
The video featured former Eagles’ star Emmanuel Amuneke who was a joint top scorer for Nigeria at its first World Cup in 1994 alongside Daniel Amokachi with two goals.
The clip went on to admire the trickery of former Eagles’ and Bolton captain Austin Jay Jay Okocha who mesmerised players with his dazzling skills, having featured in three World Cups, with Sunday Oliseh’s bullet shot against Spain at the France ’98 World Cup also in focus.
One man who can’t be forgotten so fast is Joseph Yobo who is Nigeria’s most capped player at the World Cup with 10 appearances, with FIFA also praising his ruggedness in defence.
Nigeria will be participating in it’s sixth World Cup and will be hoping for a better outing than its previous best achievement of a second-round exit.
