TOP TWELVE HIGHEST GOAL SCORERS IN HISTORY OF NIGERIAN FOOTBALL
Cool down! Chill!! You’ll get it but NOTE, the list is arranged in descending order and features 12 players.
12. Victor Obinna – 13 goals
Keshi forgot this one, or maybe he wasn’t interested in him, would have bolstered Super Eagles attack.
11. Samson Siasia – 13 goals
SIA ONE! A living legend that has passion for Nigerian football, retired, but didn’t want to leave the game. Now coach of the flying eagles.
10. Sunday Oyarekhua – 13 goals
Spent five years wearing the green and white shirt and bagged in 13 astonishing goals. Awesome? Really Awesome indeed.
9. Nwankwo Kanu – 13 goals
PAPILO! I know say one day you go make us proud. Oops! Did i just say that. Urgh! I’m totally wrong. Kanu has made Nigeria and Nigerians proud not only for ‘one day’, but for the whole 17 years he spent on the field of play and will always be a legend in our hearts. Naija’s most succesful player ever.
8. Daniel Amokachi – 13 goals
Presently the interim coach of the super eagles. That sums it up. A Living Legend Of A Star.
7. Austin Jay jay Okocha – 14 goals
Please wait for me, i’m still searching for the words to describe him with. Didn’t find but let me make it simple. ‘WIZARD OF NIGERIAN FOOTBALL.’ I rest my case.
6. Julius Agahowa – 14 goals
Known for his deadly pace and trademark acrobatic celebration. Agahowa is so fast that a Cheetah will sweat before beating him in a race. Although i’m joking but it’s the fact.
5. Obafemi Martins – 18 goals
Oba-goal! For our non-yoruba readers it means king of goals. Did i say Agahowa is fast, if he is then Martins is a travelling Light.
4. Ikechukwu Uche – 19 goals
Presently the hottest nigerian striker now. Bagging goals for fun any time he wants to.
3. Yakubu Aiyegbeni – 21 goals
Come on forget the blooper against Korea, Aiyegbeni is Magic. He is a distant cousin to the net and commands it to shake anytime he wants to.
2. Segun Odegbami – 22 goals
Odegbami is classical when scoring goals. A headache for defenders. Wish i had his boots.
1. Rashidi Yekini – 37 wonderful goals. Christ!
You can see no one is even close to him in terms of goals scored. Yekini is a master finisher. Whenever he meets a goalie one-on-one, you dare not place a bet on the keeper. His power, trickery, shot, positioning, pace and agility is unmatched. The greatest scorer in Nigeria history. Oh! Had it been i get 1 million naira each time he scored, i’d have quit schooling. Whoa! It’s just unfortunate the Legend didn’t stay long. RIP Rashidi Yekini, The Net Burster.
I know you loved and you still love this, no worry, the SoccerNet Nigeria family will always keep you entertained. We love you.
