Idk what you’re drinking but This present team totally destroyed Zambia, Algeria and Cameroon all previous nations cup champions and previous World Cup team without ease. They did it with grace, elegance and Love so to think that None is good as 1994 team is totally absurd.

Maybe Leon Balogun or Ekong as well in defense. Uche Okechukwu was a warrior but Nwanu could probably have been upgraded. Also Eguavoen wasn't the best so maybe Victor Moses at RB?



Thank you...people have actually forgotten how good Amunike was...folks are casually saying Moses would displace him.

One other thing about that team...in addition to being "professional" about their duties, they all had great ball skills...the entire front line and midfield had the skills to take on and beat opponents, in addition to crisp passing and space awareness skills.

Amunike who played for Sporting Lisbon as a regular when they were still worth something and is one of the few Nigerians who have played for FC Barcelona. If not for injury, who knows what more he could have been.

Amunike in 1994 compared to Victor Moses a premier league, Uefa Cup, Fa Cup, ANC winner and double digit scorer for Nigeria in 2018 keep drinking Zobo. It’s not even close, Moses wins

Enyeama, Mikel and Moses are the only players that'll definitely make the squad stressed of our third goalie (I forget his name but the Algiers 90/Senegal 92 goalie who Oloye recently took a pic with), Victor Ikpeba/Ekoku and maybe Oliha. I'd have to see a bit more of Ebuehi, Shehu, Ola Aina and Idowu before making a decision on them. Not cos they're very good but because our full backs were the wreak spot of the 94 team. Eguavoen and Emenalo were substandard. If it's Iroha then he gets the nod but not Emenalo.

They are deservedly the gold standard despite only achieving the second round (literally few minutes away from eliminating Italy). So, which of our current players would make the squad of 23, if the current set were available for selection in 1994? In my opinion, only Victor Moses and Captain Mikel (add Enyeama, if he were to be on the team) would make the 1994 team. Even then, they would be hard-pressed to start ahead of more complete or talented starters. For illustration, let me note the presumed starters for each team. My selection for starter for each position will appear in bold. So, who of the 2018 Rohr-led Super Eagles would crash the Westerhof team of 1994?

1994 - 2018


Rufai - Uzoho


Eguavoen - Abdullahi
Iroha (Emenalo) - Idowu
Nwanu - Ekong
Okechukwu - Balogun



Oliseh - Onazi
Okocha - Ndidi
Amokachi - Mikel


Finidi - Moses
[b]Yekini - Ighalo [/b]
Amuneke - Iwobi (Simon)

Na this one dem dey call sacrilege....biko there are some comparisons you need not bother with before the gods of the lans vex with. Abeg my man remove some of the obvious ones and leave the rest. Comparing Ighalo to Yekini is comparing Lada to BMW.

Yall don't even understand how low Naija footy have fallen lately. MAYBE Iwobi, Moses and Mikel can make the team but not as starters. No one on this current team have the ability of Adepoju not to mention Okocha, Finidi, Oliseh, Yekini, Siasia, Amokachi, and Rafai. Players like Amunike, Ikpeba, Nwanu, Ezeugo, Ekoku, and Okafor can be upgraded but not from the current bunch. Etebo, Musa, and Joel won't even make the preliminary list. Back then players learn the fundamentals and can do the basics right, Musa can't even cross the ball, Ndidi not comfortable with ball at his feet, Iheanacho can't run for 45min, Simon a non factor when game a little physical and they are all close to being starters. They might do well in Russia but 80% of the current set don't appear to be world standard and a good 80% of the 94 set were.


KPOM!!! :clap:

Apparently, all you have to do is rely on statistics. Also the 94 team only one 1 nations cup they must not have been that great. :lol:

One player for sure... Mikel Obi. He played on the same team with Kanu and TMWMP in AFCON 2006 (12 years after the 94 games).

He would have fitted in... IMO the only player on this team that actually has the maturity and sense to play with that 94 squad.

VicMo, would make the team but not as a starter...but as a midfielder.
Shehu would make the team as a RB... we really didn't have a quality RB.
Ndidi will make the squad... but not as a starter. He is today better than Ezeugo, Ekoku, and Oliha.

If I did a first 11, plus squad of 23:

Rufai
Eguavoen-Uche-Ekong-Iroha
Oliseh-Mikel
Okocha
George-Yekini-Amunike

Other squad members: Agbonevbare, Uzoho, Ebuehi. Keshi, Nwanu, Idowu, Ndidi, Adepoju, Moses, Amokachi, Siasia.

Based on your formation, I will take Mutiu instead of Mikel. If playing 4-4-2, I will play Amo or Siasia instead of Mikel.

It's 2018 folks, move on from the nostalgia of '94 already as time changes with its dynamics... of course we all have that reminiscing moment about the 94 boys, but I believe this crop of players in due time will go on to do greater things, let's motivate these boys and stop the baseless comparisons already... Gosh.

A healthy Amo can't be on the bench if Mikel and Okocha are starting.

Do you think playing with only one DM is a little too bold? (AKA Denmark 1998: 1-4 annihilation)

Who would you drop to play Amokachi? Do you think playing with 5 attackers in the starting 11 is a bit reckless (including Okocha who roams all over the place leaving defensive gaps behind him).

If playing 2 dm, i choose mutiu ahead of mikel cos of mutiu's attacking threat. And nothing wrong playing with 1 dm. We did that sk many times in 90s. Abi u be mikel agent?
