  1. Obinna Nsofo, Wilson Oruma, mutiu adepoju and pius ikedia are missing in this list. Without the headmaster, Mutiu Adepoju, there’s no list!

    • I totally agree with u. How can Celestine Babayaro make the list and Mutiu Adepoju’s name is missing. And for the life of me, what is Yakubu Aiyegbeni doing on that list? Who made this list again?

  2. Sentimental list, we lack respect for our heroes in this country. You can imagine Brazil listing her Football Heroes without Pele, impossible but don’t be surprised it can happen if he is a Nigerian.

  3. Sorry ’bout this but where is Mr Bouateg one of our best diffender ever and past players like Peter Niketin ,Nosa Osadolo just to name but a few and wishing you all a HAPPY 2013 TO ALL AND OUR COUNTARY NIGERIA
