What number is Yobo for Nigeria? --82.152.96.194 23:59, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

  • He wears 2. It says so on the article, but I also checked ESPN SoccerNet. Sorry it took you so long to get a response. TFCforever (talk) 02:33, 14 February 2008 (UTC)


I read in a 1998 World Cup Guide I found today that "Nigeria's problem stems from this football mad nation's high expectations and inexorable belief that Niegeria must win everything. Anything less than a victory at France 98 is simply intolerable. Good luck Milutinovic". Should this kind of stuff be included in the article? Rogerthat Talk 06:25, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

15 players were killed in a bus accident.[edit]

Edit request from Fiscomego, 17 June 2010[edit]

{{editsemiprotected}} " Please change nickname to also known as". The name super eagles is not a nickname but the name of the senior Nigerian national football team,the national football team is called Eagles just like Bafana Bafana is the name of South African team. To identify the different categories a prefix is added. Senior team is called "super", the under 23 is called "flying", etc. thus it should not appear as nickname but as an 'also known as'.

X mark.svg Not done The term 'nickname' is used across the Wikipedia pages on National Football Teams. Thanks, —  Cargoking  talk  15:27, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

First official match in 1949[edit]

It says in the history section that Nigeria played it's first "official" game in 1949. How is "official" defined? Because that match against Sierra Leone isn't recognized by FIFA as a full international, therefore it would be counted as unofficial. Banana Fingers (talk) 19:44, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

South Liverpool[edit]

Were South Liverpool F.C. amateur or semi-professional non-league in 1949? The article states that they were amateur, but I cannot find any reference to the club being amateur or to them ever having played in the F.A. Amateur Cup. Coyets (talk) 07:40, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
