The history of football in Nigeria

The World Championship Football is played out on fields in Russia. One of the participants is the Green Eagles team. The national squad from Nigeria. Nigerian football has seen many famous names, some of the players have played and play for major teams in Europa (and other continents) where they have gained glory. Think of people like Finidi George, Nwanko Kanu.
