Nigeria 94 - Rasheed Yekini

  • Nigeria 94 - Rasheed Yekini

    #1 Rashidi Yekini

    The late 1993 African Footballer of the Year made history by scoring Nigeria’s first ever goal at the grand showpiece in a 3-0 defeat of Bulgaria and followed it up with his now-iconic celebration which saw him clutch the net and bellow in excitement. He is the Super Eagles all-time top scorer with 37 strikes and is fondly remembered by his time at Vitoria de Setubal.

  • Nigeria 94 - Daniel Amokachi

    #2 Daniel Amokachi

    “The Bull” netted the second goal in that iconic victory over Bulgaria and went on to score 13 times for the Super Eagles. He was also a vital cog of the side that triumphed in Atlanta a couple of years later and went on to play for Club Brugge, Everton and Besiktas before non-playing roles as assistant manager of Nigeria over two spells, among others.

  • Nigeria 94 - Samson Siasia

    #4 Samson Siasia

    Siasia featured in all group stage games and scored once for Clemens Westerhof’s side. He went on to feature 51 times for the Super Eagles for a little over a decade and scored 16 goals. He was also part of the squad that won the African Nations Cup in ’94 and notably secured a league title in France with Nantes. Since retiring, he’s had two spells as manager of the Nigeria side – in 2010 and 2016.
  • Efan Ekoku

    #5 Efan Ekoku

    The English-born Ekoku was part of the ’94 squad but didn’t get an appearance in the competition. He went on to make 20 appearances over four years and scored six times. Since retiring, he’s enjoyed an amazing punditry career.
  • Victor Ikpeba

    #6 Victor Ikpeba

    The versatile Ikpeba was another who couldn’t make it onto the pitch over the course of the tournament but still went on to make 31 appearances for the Super Eagles with seven goals to his name. “The Prince of Monaco” had an illustrious spell at the Principality, where he overcame a tough start to win a league title in 1996/1997, which saw him named African Player of the Year in 1997.
