The '94 set seem bigger and more athletic than today's SE. Just pause the video at the 25 secs mark. Not sure any of our current SE will think about scoring that goal Amunike scored against Bulgaria. Now to the lymch mob, i'm not saying they're the best because they definitely underachieved due to partly bad luck, in-fighting and lack of discipline.

'The solution is simple. Develop the local league. Stop the JAPA movement. Back in the 80 and 90's we had a lot of of talent in midfield because the likes of Nwakili and Obi stayed in Nigeria to develop their skills. Now the likes of Obi who was a creative midfield was converted to a sideways passing defensive midfielder by Jose Maurinhno.
Winners do it the right way.

Football is less about size and more about intellect, team focus and cohesion.
Add to that the NFF show of leadership, transparency, and less intrusion on team
selection.
I will readily take and team with discipline and focus on the agenda over one that
is chuck full of selfish ball jugglers playing as individuals.

governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and our banks destroy the economy.”

U17 World cups'
Afcons
Olympic Gold
African U20 championships
and etc.

If not for Abacha, Nigeria would have the Afcon in 1996 and 1998.

But we won AFCON too in 2013 and got to the final in 2023.

Biko, don’t include the U17s and U20s from the 80s and 90s. Those ones don’t count for obvious reasons.

In summary, our performance has not declined because of our inferior local league. The other African teams have just caught up and the rest of the world have moved ahead.

Seriously? You really asked that question?
The difficulties of statistical thinking describes a puzzling limitation of our mind: our excessive confidence in what we believe we know, and our apparent inability to acknowledge the full extent of our ignorance and the uncertainty of the world we live in. We are prone to overestimate how much we understand about the world and to underestimate the role of chance in events -- Daniel Kahneman (2011), Winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics

You can’t be referring to me? I watched my first life match at the National Stadium Surulere when Nigerians used to drive on the other side of the road. That’s the clue.
