Super Eagles : Form, Credibility and Leadership: Attributes of new-look Eagles
A new era for Nigeria's Super Eagles starts in earnest and by the time you are reading this, the new-look team might have been in camp in preparation for the qualifying series of 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (camp starts on Thursday May 21).
Just last week, the team got a more definite shape as a team of 26 players selected from the local league was unveiled with the backroom staff that will work with Stephen Keshi also revealed. Of course it is not the first time Keshi would make the local league the base of his team and I dare say that for an avid follower of the Nigeria Professional Football League, the composition of players on that list perfectly represents just about the best we have seen in the over nine weeks of reinvigorated league football in Nigeria.For the benefit of all and quite some doubters, I feel it will be right to review the list having watched many games and seen many of the invited stars in the league this term.

I had to look at the list twice just to confirm... No Wikki (Bauchi)player on the team, I want to believe their current league form should merit at least one player on the list, rather we have up to three players from a single club. Just a feeling!!!

Taiwo Awoniyi scored a second-half hat-trick as the Flying Eagles dumped Hoffenheim U23 team 5-2 in a test match on Tuesday. The African champions created the more chances and could even have won by a wider margin but for some wastefulness in front of goal. Kingsley Sokari stamped his authority ...

  Striker dilemma can be such pain for any football coach. It is one thing to have a plethora of attackers who are playing at the very top and consistently raking an impressive goal per game ratio; it is a completely different stuff when you have so many attackers whose stats are below average, not …

Three Time African Football Champions
Introduction

The Nigeria national football team, nicknamed Super Eagles or previously Green Eagles, is the national team of Nigeria and is controlled by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). During April 1994, Super Eagles ranked 5th in the FIFA World Rankings, the highest ranking achieved by an African football team. They are the current Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) champions - a feat that they have achieved a total of 3 times, and have reached the FIFA World Cup round of 16 twice.

After playing other colonies in unofficial games since the 1930s, Nigeria played its first official game in October 1949, while still a British Colony. The team played warm up games in England against various amateur teams like Dulwich Hamlet, Bishop Auckland and South Liverpool. The team's first major success was a gold medal in the 2nd All-Africa games, with 3rd place finishes in the 1976 and 1978 Africa Cup of Nation to follow. In 1980 the team had such players as Levton Orient's John Chiedozie and Tunji Banjo, and the Muda Lawal/Christian Chukwu-led Super Eagles won the Cup for the first time in Lagos. In 1984 and 1988, Nigeria reached the Cup of Nations final, losing both times to Cameroun. Nigeria finally reached the World Cup for the first time in 1994. In 1998 Nigeria returned to the World Cup alongside Cameroon, Morocco, Tunisia, and South Africa. The 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan saw Nigeria again qualify with optimism also qualified for the 2010 World Cup after defeating Kenya by 3–2 in Nairobi.

Nigeria has won the Africa Cup of Nations three times (1980, 1994 and most recently, 2013). They have been runners-up four times (1984,1988,1990 and 2000). They have finished in third place seven times, including four times recently (2002, 2004,2006, and 2010). On 10 February 2013 they beat the Stallions of Burkina Faso to lift the Africa Cup of Nations for the third time. This was the first time a Nigerian coach, Stephen Keshi the captain of the 1994 AFCON champions, would lead the Super Eagles to Cup success.

A powerful team known for its attacking style of football, each generation of the Super Eagles have produced world class players who have gone on to have successful professional careers such as: Segun Odegbami, Christian Chukwu, Rashidi Yekini, Jay-Jay Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo, Finidi Geroge, Stephen Keshi, Sunday Oliseh, Taribo West, Victor Ikpeba, Daniel Amokachi, Mikel Obi and Peter Rufai - just to mention a few.
