With just a few days to the end of an eventful year for Nigeria football, it is time once again to cast a glance back at some of the events of the last 12 months.
A year where Nigeria’s football reached a new low, Super Eagles were the only shining light, and that’s down to the performances of the players.
Soccernet Nigeria’s Imhons Erons highlights the ten best Nigerian footballers whose contribution to the national team’s success in 2019 cannot be overrated.
Omeruo remains one of the best defenders the Super Eagles have had this decade. The 2013 AFCON winner was solid for the Super Eagles every time he was called upon.
Once the 27-year-old was in the side, Gernot Rohr’s men hardly lost games. Omeruo was on the losing side with the Eagles just once in the last 15 months – a nail biting 2-1 defeat suffered at the hands of Algeria in the semifinals of Egypt 2019.
