Really? I think it’s the best looking list since the mid nineties. Don’t recall Naija having so much quality since the golden age 1994 -1997, and even then, there wasn’t so much depth...

Where is Brigh Osayi Samuel on this list??? Dude is balling for QPR and unlike Ebere Eze, does not need FIFA approval to play for Nigeria.

NFA chairman is nothing but one massive agent, however this effort he put in towards our players is top notch...regardless, the guy still lacks basic intelligence....

You are right. and interestingly, about 8 are not in Top quality bracket because they are regular bench warmers in their clubs.

NIgeria is the third highest exporter of footballers worldwide after Brazil and Argentina.

Its time we start investing in our football so we can export more finished quality products that would play and earn higher abroad.

Nigeria is a human resource exporting country. We also have NIgerians doing it in basketball, athletics, medicine, technilogy, law, science, smallbusinesses, etc.

But our current state is the best we've ever had since 94 partly helped by Nigerians in Diaspora.

If we going by the most inform players also considering status of league, this would be Rohr's first 11 Vs Brazil.

Etebo

Balogun


Etebo, semi, uzoho, Shehu and Balogun are the odd men in that list. Either playing in low leagues or not playing at all.

I agree. "Raw" would rather go with a midfield's thats blended instead of putting in someone trying to get a hand of the team style. Even Aribo is ahead of Azeez in Raw's books.

I was one man off compared to Rohr's list. However, mine was based on form and quality in Europe. Form and quality would def win you an invite but not a starting shirt.

I agree that form and quality should win a player an invite but that should not be restricted to Europe. I assume here that quality refers to the individual player and not to his team or to a league.

EII,
just seeing this.

While form doesn't have to be in any particular league but with QUALITY, the better the league standard, better the quality. An in form player in Emyimba cant be compared to an in form player in Barca.

Nfachairman,

I will not disagree with that. However, an in-form player at Enyimba may well be technically better than an in-form player at Galatasary (in theory). Let's assume, for moment that we have a spectacular U17 guy, who is in Nigeria and signs to play for a Nigerian club (e.g. MFM), he may be better than a player currently at Bordeaux. Yet, because of his age, it is difficult for him to be in Europe. That is just one example. (2) Note that some Nigerian players with supposedly poor "football education" leave the NPFL and immediately start for an elite club in a Scandinavian country. Guess What? They had just been chosen ahead of players who had supposedly top "football education" beginning from their academy years. :rotf: (3) third is that because of compensation issues playing in Nigeria, our players want out and they do not necessarily care where to go. They simply want to a play where due compensation exists because they have a family to feed. This means that they will not necessarily seek out the high level club.

The bottomline is that using clubs to determine the better players will not lead to the call up of the best players. Sure, it will give us some of them but there are several others lurking around elsewhere. These things are far more complex and complicated than merely using the pedigree of a club to determine who is a quality player and who is not. Such methods are rife with errors especially in the Nigerian situation where compensation issues throw such rationality out of whack.
