I agree with your ranking largely especially the top 2. It shows you are one of the few to mix with past with the present. Others are carrying on as if football started in trhe 90s. Henry Nwosu, Yisa Shofoluwe, Austin Eguavon, Finidi George, Samson Siasia will be included in my top 20 in addition to your list Log in to Reply OCHOLA SUNDAY Jay-Jay was the best and still the best Log in to Reply Tosin Rashidi Yekini, Emmanuel Amuneke, JJ Okocha, Daniel Amokachie, Finidi George, Peter Rufai, Kanu Nwaknwo Log in to Reply Ayoola Faluyi Tosan To discuss and rank the best Nigerian player of all times without sentiments, there must and should be a criteria, because we will certainly be looking at different generational periods. For me, i believe, individual laurels won, glory brought to the country and international recognitions, fame and acknowledgement could be useful in this regaurd. i think Rashidi Yekini and Kanu Nwankwo are exceptional. How many Nigerian footballers have won the African player of the year? How many have brought laurels to their clubs (internationally/locally) and country? Okocha is an extreme talented player but never with big achievements.

Log in to Reply CANAMA BEDELL JJ OKOCHA Log in to Reply CANAMA BEDELL I SAW HIM PLAYING IN MY COUNTRY (LIBERIA) WHEN WE WON TWO GOALS TO ONE AT THE SAMUEL K.DOE SPORT COMPLEX. HE WAS VERY SWIFT AND THE KING OF FOOTBALL IN LIBERIA (GEORGE WEAR) MADE SURE HE DID NOT COMPLETE HIS AIM OF SCORING THEIR SECOND GOAL. Log in to Reply pappingo Etim Esin Log in to Reply ofordu chris okocha is my best for all time. others were very good also intheir varoius times and ways Log in to Reply Ademuyiwa Oluwole Everyone has right to his or her opinion, but the fact remains that you can only comment on the generation of any of them you see playing. Many of the yester year player didn’t have a video coverage that can afford many to see their exploit. So let us not generate an argument that is uncalled for. They are all great in their own time. Thank you. Log in to Reply You must log in to post a comment.
