Was at stadium where security did not allow us to go into the field and celebrate with the team after the gold medal match.

...the 90s, the era of over sized shirts :laugh:

Truth be told those were determined group of players Nigeria had back then, before millionaire players started sprouting.
Now, even a mere player with some few thousands in the bank is too aloof, making playing together difficult.

It must have been so much joy for you. I was all the way in Seattle. Had to work both Brazil and Argie matches but got a small tv at the workplace and would go to the backroom to watch it. Lucky I didn't get fired. I had only been in America 8 mths, was really home sick since I was here by myself. These guys made me happy. Gave me confidence to tell anybody I met I was Nigerian. Back then It was no way cool to be African. Those were the days!! So much swagger from the boys!! Now contrast that with the players we have in Russia. Enough said.

How do we get back there? The Nigerian team does not inspire confidence anymore. Back then if I told other Africans I was Nigerian they just wanted to buy me a bottle of beer and talk about that set. They all knew the names even better than me. It was because of that set that I became a member of cybereagles.

...it will be difficult to get back to that height with what we have today. Until football is properly rehabilitated, and promoted back home. Having all the youth players hone their skill in the local league before flying off to distant lands where they get used, paid peanuts, and forgotten. Let the scouts come see them play in Nigerian league, then beg them and their clubs for hefty fees.

He says that we are currently "brainwashed" into believing that the Premier League is the best competition in the world, and that we are now a long way off dominating the Champions League again.

I think Spain’s by far the best league.

They can say what they want and degrade the meaning of the Olympic football gold, but Argentina and Brazil had World Cup level teams there.

p.s. That Crespo penalty was bull.
