I'd put Ogidi Ibeabuchi, Friday Elaho, Uwem Ikono, before James Etokebe...

I am not basing my rankings on the number of appearances for the Eagles. In the 90s, there was a dearth of left wingers so, Garba Lawal stood out but imho he wasn’t as good as Sunday Izevbighie who didn’t have as many appearances for the Eagles. Most people who were privileged to have watched Izevbighie would agree with me that he was indeed top quality. Now,Ogidi was a key factor in the success of the Rangers International, as was Awesu for IICC although in my viewpoint, Rangers were more successful. Having said that, I will admit that after the first 3, there is very little to pick and choose between the next 2 and the honorable mentions but Ogidi is my preferred choice over Awesu :!:


Cheers.

But Ogidi was hardly among the top 5 players in those Rangers teams compared to Awesu who was arguably IICC's third most important player and was selected in Africa's top xi after the AFCON of 1976.

Make una see dis Vasco fan trying to rank the great Rangers. Abeg, stop am ooo :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, Ogidi had that position locked down almost right from the very beginning until he retired and it wasn’t until Adokie showed up that they had another left winger of comparable pedigree. You had Onyedika on the right and Ogidi on the left. The combination of both wingers made the pair of Nwobodo and Obianika that much more dangerous :!:


Cheers.

Man, this list has just opened my eyes to the fact that our history is virtually empty of #9's with longetivity...
Only Yekini, Usiyen, Ayegbeni, probably Teslim Balogun, tied down the #9 role over a decent period...
We just dey change top 9 strikers like wrapper...

Na real wa...

My top 5 list:
Yekini
Usiyen

Any other 3 from the rest :taunt: :taunt:

Bros, Usiyen did not...

If he did, he would probably have ended up as Nigeria's greatest-ever (on the basis of pure talent alone, he arguably remains so). Instead, as was the rage in those days, he emigrated after a short (albeit impressive) spell for the professional abyss of the US collegiate system.

With all due respect, Godwin Ogbueze should NOT be on that list...

An absolute gem of pure talent, he did precious little at club level where he was constantly injured (during an era in which fracturing an opponent's legs was substantively a 'legitimate' defensive tactic) before joining the emigration train to the US collegiate system - and he did ABSOLUTE JACK at the national team level. Frankly, he should NOT even be considered for an Enugu Rangers Top 5 list.

You're right...'Longetivity' is the wrong term
Maybe I should have implied 'stand-out' quality (rather than longetivity)

Usiyen was #9 for 2yrs(?)...in that period, he was undisputed #9...same as Yekini...

The rest on that list (no matter the no. of yrs in the SEagles) never had that sort of monopoly of the #9...
They were regularly swapping the shirt with competing players...

My top 5 super eagles strikers from your list and my opinion based on SE performance
1) Ahmed Musa - this is a controversial selection but I believe that based on his performance, dedication and achievements for super eagles, he will end up being our best striker of all time. He has NPL, ANC, u20 ANC and only player to have scored 4 goals at the World Cup and was literally our best player at those 2 World Cups for us. If you want to denigrate his World Cup goals/performance then remember how many great strikers for SE played at the World Cup like Kanu, Yakubu, siasia, martins, uche, amokachi, etc he is definitely the best SE striker of my generation 1992 to present

2) Rashidi yekini - no question, legend, powerful, strong, big he was a complete striker and if not for Ahmed Musa performance at the biggest stage then yekini would had been number 1

3) Obagoal - I remember watching obagoal against Ireland in 2004 and thinking omg we have found yekini replacement. He had pace, power, shooting ability and was a world class talent at a young age. Performance wise he was decent for us but his nonchalant and lackadasical attitude towards SE ruined his reputation.



4) Kanu nwankwo - the most intelligent striker to play for SE he won it all at club level and could had been further up the list if he had performed at ANC or even WC for us

5) Emenike Emmanuel- I remember him carrying SE during The late Keshi era and he also did it by qualifying us for ANC, WC and winning ANC.

Disclaimer: I have heard about legends like balogun, usiyen, okwaraji but I didn’t watch them play so they were omitted.
Honorable mentions to the likes of Aghawonder, Agali, Yakubu, ikpeba, Ike uche, Osage odemwingie, amokachi, siasia etc they couldn’t make it due to various reasons for me

You can’t make list of the best Nigerian strikers without including Johnny Nwadioha and Ifeanyi Onyedika :!: :!: :!:

Eze, didn’t you include Ogbueze? How many games did he play? Dribble for dribble, Onyedika is probably the most skillful player who ever played 9 for Nigeria... and no Nigerian striker was more feared by Emmanuel Okala than Nwadioha :!:
