Nigeria may have put out the best of displays despite their somewhat redeeming victory in the return leg of their clash against Guinea-Bissau, but not to bore you with despair and shadowy sadness stemming from the recent woes of the Super Eagles, shifting the focus to the glory days of the three-time African champions, here’s a quick look into the victorious days of the 1994 Super Eagles team that represented Nigeria in Tunisia.
At the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations Cup (AFCON) tournament in Tunisia, Nigeria paraded quite a squad – fearsome to say the least. They were a team any opponent would wish to avoid, and remains arguably the best Super Eagles squad in the nation’s footballing history. Coming into the tournament as one of the three favorites for the title, Nigeria’s 1994 AFCON side ended up securing the win, as expected.
Unbelievable was the feat achieved by this Super Eagles team and little wonder they were ranked fifth in the world by FIFA when the rankings for men’s football of April 1994 were released. 
Let’s catch a look at what some of them have been up to lately.
Austin Eguavoen was a dominant part of the back-four that took the Eagles to the 1994 AFCON title. He worked as Super Eagles manager at Egypt 2006 AFCON where Nigeria settled for Bronze, recently had his infamous second stint as head coach in the lastly concluded AFCON in Cameroon. He currently works with the NFF as a member of the technical committee.
Austin Okocha, Infamously known as ‘Jay-Jay’, this mercurial midfielder was one of the best playmakers Nigeria ever produced. His dazzling skills and abilities were second to none. He gave the world a slice of his talent during the tournament and alongside Oliseh formed a formidable partnership. The midfielder has since retirement been once the FA Chairman of Delta state, an ambassador of the Bundesliga in Nigeria, and currently, the brand ambassador for Sports Betting brands.
Daniel Amokachi, ‘Da Bull’ was a key member of the winning side, and his tenacity and work rate played a huge role in ensuring that Nigeria emerged champions in Tunisia. Amokachi is currently the special adviser on sports to President Muhammadu Buhari. He is also an ambassador for a couple of brands.
Finidi George, the former Real Betis man also featured hugely during the course of the tournament. The Eagles winger since retiring has been shuffling between Seville and Nigeria and he is currently the Ambassador of an online betting platform and the current coach of two-time CAF champions league side Enyimba.
