Babayaro for me, his display at the Atlanta 96 was one of the greatest display by a left back in major tournament.

Youth tourney though, he never really replicated the same thing in the full NT.

JJ Okocha!

Considering what OGA did to you guys and what you saw him do on the football pitch, it's no wonder you only know his name.

But Wome was better than Babayaro nah?

That dude was able to get to top teams all over Europe.

Honestly, I think the 3 you mentioned were more talented and skillful than Wome. Wome had a longer career at a high level though.

Did he play for Al Ahly?

If we talk RBs then Africa has had several excellent players in that position: Trabelsi, Lauren, Geremi, Aurier, heck even the 21 yo version of Yobo used to bomb down the right flank as a RWB.

We had an ace LB who would have been great - Mohamed Abdelwahab. He had a heart defect though and passed away aged 22 during training. Was the best LB during the 2006 ACN and our best defender. Had he not passed away, he would have 100+ caps and played for a top club in Europe. Absolutely no doubt.

Lauren was great. Could play LB just as well as RB.

Yobo was an awesome right back! My best memories of him are from his right-back days.

How about the Tunisian Trabelsi.... I believed he played for Ajax in the mid 2000s or so. A damn good left back

Just out of curiosity, how many of you have watched or heard of Faouzi Ghoulam?

Who told you he is not a LB? He's played that position a lot for multiple teams including Ghana, Udinese and Juve

Wome was good but he could be an absolute brute. I witnessed one katakata this guy got into with Salgado of Real Madrid. It was just back and forth with the two of them just kicking each other when they had the chance. Wome eventually was sent off

He was great when he was playing footballl. The best for me though is the Ghana man at Juventus


Kwadwo Asamoah is not a left back. he is a Left midfielder or Left Defensive Midfielder. It is true that he has played as a left back on a few occasions.

The best left back from Africa at the moment plays for Napoli, Faouzi Ghoulam. He is incredible.
