There is no disputing the pedigree of Nigeria's 1994 national team that was ranked No.5 in the world, won the Cup for African Nations (AFCON), and reached the last 16 at the World Cup. Clearly, no Nigerian team has come close before and since then. Although, there are those who may argue that the 2013 team comes close but certainly not in the minds of a great number of Nigerian teams that witnessed that 1994 team.

But having stated the above, it is arguable whether that 1994 team can be classified as Africa's best squad ever in spite of its lofty No. 5 ranking back then. Some may well argue that the team's failure to overcome Italy at the 1994 World Cup forever condemns the team to a place in the rankings behind the three African teams that have ventured to the last 8 of a World Cup. But should statistics and records be the deciding factors on this issue of Africa's best? Well, lets take a look.

Table 1 below provides the distribution of those accolades. This indicates the strength in depth of the Nigerian squad and how it was sustained several years after 1994.

How can they be african best when they couldn't reach wc quarter finals? Africa best is either cameroun 1990 Senegal 2002 or Ghana 2010. I think Ghana 2010 got it but because dem be midgets, I will give it to Senegal 2002

Off the top if we're ranking them post 1990, it's Egypt 2008, Ghana 2010 tied with Nigeria 1994 and Cameroon 2002, Senegal 2002 then Keshi's Nigeria.

Nigeria's 1994 team ended the tourney with 2 wins and 2 losses. Not exactly great. They were surely talented and exciting to watch.

I don't want anyone to tell me nonsense because I watched the ANC and WC at the time.

Africa's best teams ever at the World Cup are:
1. Ghana 2010
2. Senegal 2002
3. Cameroon 1990
4. Nigeria 1994
5. Algeria 1982

Overall, if we also factor in the team's performance at the AFCON then the SE 1994 team ranks higher IMO:
1. Cameroon 1990 (1988 AFCON win)
2. Nigeria 1994 (1994 AFCON win)
3. Ghana 2010 (2010 AFCON final)
4. Senegal 2002 (2002 AFCON final)
5. Algeria 1982 (1980 AFCON final)

EII, I do not judge the quality of teams solely on the basis of statistics because statistics can be very misleading. Case in point is the 1990 Cameroon team which got to the quarterfinals of the World Cup but was really mediocre in many of their games during that World Cup; they did let in 6 goals against Russia, remember? In fact, without Roga Milla, a last minute addition to the team, they wouldn’t have gotten out of the group.

Back to Nigeria 1994, I saw 3 of the 4 games they played at the World Cup and I can tell you for a fact that both of their losses were, unequivocally, courtesy of the referees. I can also tell you with the utmost certainty that if Nigeria had held on against Italy, they would have played in the final match of that World Cup. There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that the Nigerian World Cup team of 1994 is the absolute best team Africa has ever sent to a World Cup. You can take that to the bank :!:


Cheers.

It appears your analysis is limited in scope. In the piece the 1994 squad is used as a base and then judged on games beyond that single tournament. It is a wider scope of analysis. Read the piece.

Bros, it is not. Perhaps your use of non equitable terminology is the issue here. Base means exactly what it means....base. You also made reference to individual player achievement, to suggest the 1994 team being the strongest. If so, it still does not make it the best team.

In what way exactly? Perhaps, you are confused by my reference to the Cameroonian team of 1990. That reference was made only to emphasize that statistics are ultimately not very important in my assessment of a team’s quality :!:

Sure you can argue about whether it is the best or not. That is the goal. I expect different perspectives, BTW.

However, the argument should be based on the scope here. The scope isn't just the AFCON of 1994. That appears to be what you have focused on. The scope is far beyond that. BTW, the base simply means a foundation which is exactly how it is used here. Except if you have a different conception of what a base means.

TTTK,

Statistics serves its purpose and that should never be underestimated. It does give us a valuable view of the actual variations of any object. However, on this subject, statistics is not the only measure used. A significant part of the analysis is a qualitative-like examination.

The 94 Cameroon team was the one that collected six of the best from Russia courtesy of Oleg Salenko who scored virtually all his golden boot winning goals in that one match against Cameroon. The 90 Cameroon team only collected four against Russia.

I think that's the point scholl was trying to make.

That should be (1990 AFCON group stage)

I work with 3 avid soccer fans and not once have I heard them say anything about their 1994 trophy. I am assuming you are asking because you visit many Brazil football forums and you hear them relish in their 1994 WC championship.

Are you more likely to hear Brazilians talk about the 1994 or 2002 trophies or their next one?

I'm asking because I'm curious.
