I was looking again at that 1994 World cup squad, and I dare say today only Finidi, Okocha, Rufai and Yekini could make the grade on the current team.
Mikel is better than Oliseh
Ndidi is better than Adepoju
Musa is better than Siasia
Aina/Ebuehi better than Eguavon

The list goes on....

Ighalo actually has 3 goals so far in this tournament with 2 games remaining. He deserves some respect

Vastly superior?? I still have my copy of Complete Sports magazine from right after WC '94. A lot was better then including sports writers, player interviews etc. That team was ranked 5th in the world. They didn't know how good they were and none of us did going into that WC. I was hanging out with 2 Italians (one from Florence, other from Sicily) 2 weeks ago and they admitted Baggio and co got away big time in that heartbreaking game. The only Nigerian player they called out outside '94 was Ikpeba. Boy...do they respect Amokachie! No doubt Westerhof did something with that team that changed Naija football.

The 94 boys got places in big European teams when teams were limited to three foreign (not three non-EU) players. This team can be great but they haven't done anything yet.

:D Listen kiddo, you dont know me so don't make stupid assumptions.

If you disagree, make your point and say why. If you only have cheap insults, then I have nothing else to say to you.

Man for man, the 1994/96 squad is our most talented squad ever.
If you want to talk about team organization, then I would agree that the current squad is more organized and carries less controversy, but thats about it!

Why do I feel you both are supporting the 94 set , in essence on the same side of the argument.

True. I made a quoting error. I wanted to quote Bushboy. 94 is definitely superior

Firstly all three goalkeepers from 1994 were superior to our number one keeper at present.
Peter Rufai, Wilfred Agbonavbare, and Alloy Agu. Peter was playing in The Dutch first division,Wilfred in La Liga and Alloy was in the Dutch league.

You can not compare the seasoned Ben Iroha of 1994 to young Jamilu Collins plus Ben had top level experience in the Dutch league with vitesse Arnhem. Jamilu is yet to experience top flight European football. Our reserve left back was mike emenalo, who was a natural center back that was played out of position. As a left back he was not a specialist, so I guess he would struggle to displace either Collins or Aina.

Eguavoen was once a roving midfielder so lack the specialist qualities of a true right back.

Our center backs in 1994 were Keshi, Nwatu, Uche Okechukwu, Emeka Ezeugo and Uche Okafor. All of them with the exception of Okafor and Ezeugo are better than the chaps we have today. Taking nothing away from our boys, the fact is that ability wise , they cannot come close to the class of 1994.

Our central midfield in 1994 consisted of Mutiu, Okocha, Oliseh, and Oliha. How can anyone that watched both teams even argue that Mikel is superior to Oliseh? Who born dog? The only chap from 1994 that would struggle today is Oliha. However Oliha was a fantastic defensive midfielder, I remember many a match when he marked deadly strikers out of games.

Our wingers from 1994 were Finidi, and Amunike. One was voted African player of the year, the other was so good that at Ajax (when he was fresh from Sharks of port harcourt) he displaced the Finnish genius jari litmanen from his role on the right wing and moved him to the left. That’s why during some matches both players would switch wings. Which of our wingers today can match them?

Our strikers in 1994 were Yekini, SiaSia, Amokachi, Ikpeba and Ekoku.
Two African players of the year (Yekini and Ikpeba), A genius in siasia and ekoku that had a brilliant career in the English premiership at Norwich city and then Wimbledon. He played with Robbie Earle and Marcus Gayle, has speed, was six foot four, great in the air, he a wicked shot and could finish beautifully.
The entire attack player for player kicks our present teams #$%.
