The lineup was:
Nigeria - Vincent Enyeama, Joseph Enakhire, Ifeanyi Udeze, Ikpe Ekong, Issac Okoronkwo, Romanus Orjinta, Austin Okocha, John Utaka, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Nwankwo Kanu, Garba Lawal.

Brazil - Dida, Beletti, Lucio, Juan, Kleber, Ricardinho, Kleberson, Emerson, Ronaldinho, Gil, Luis Fabiano.

This time around, I am not comfortable with the way players are pulling out. However, I think we can do better than that 2003 game. What are your thoughts?

Isaac Okoronkwo, one of the most underrated CBs to play for the SE, top top player. If Yobo was fit for the match, the outcome would have been different. Okoronkwo was paired with the ineffective Romanus Orjinta, and he did a woman's job curbing the incursions of the world champions.

I remember this match, organised by a friend. He nearly died from exhaustion and lost about $300k from hosting the match.

I also remember representatives of a certain German club who were in the stadium to watch a certain player who should not have been on the pitch but it was all arranged to smoothen his potential transfer. Lol

I was at the stadium that day. There crowd was sparse and there were more people outside the stadium because of the high ticket prices . I'm not surprised the organisers lost money. Also a lot of fans came to the stadium hoping to buy tickets at the gates only to find out they were being sold at designated outlets like supermarkets.

Wow. Strange they didn't cater for fans buying tickets at the venue.

The same guy had experience of organising matches in the UK - Nigeria v Jamaica, Nigeria v Ireland, Jamaica v Ghana etc. But the Abuja match was something else.

Was this not the game that some people stayed in their house and heard Zagallo whisper to Okocha on TV that he wished he were Brazillian?

That's why we lost 3 - 0. If he played that under Rohr he would have been pulled. The national team is not where you go an play for a new contract by hugging the ball when a simple pass would have sufficed!

not once, have i ever wished my SE to be eliminated from any tournament . Please stop with the false narrative..Mace everyone knows you are wrong here, you cannot just come here making stuff up..your credibility is one of the lowest on this forum and you are known to have huge negative vibes especially towards SE players. It's the truth, if you doubt me, click on your profile and read your last 10 posts

Yep, indeed the great Zagallo ran onto the pitch like a little boy to exchange jerseys with OGA JJ.

Only men in the group of extraordinary men saw and appreciated the beauty of OGA's play. Like Pele (who saw only Okocha and Zizou as the only outstanding players in France 98), Platini (who would not have minded cutting off one of his arms to get okocha into his team if he had one), Mario Zagalo (World Cup winning coach who took Okocha’s jersey after the friendly match).
