Who can help out on this? Surely not the NFA.
Re: Who Is The Capped Super Eagles Player Ever? by mochafella(m): 8:07am On Sep 20, 2006
Muda Lawal - about 90 caps
Re: Who Is The Capped Super Eagles Player Ever? by teeroy(m): 8:19am On Sep 20, 2006
I wish someone would put up a list.
Re: Who Is The Capped Super Eagles Player Ever? by Akolawole(m): 2:06pm On Sep 20, 2006
Alhaji Mudashiru Babatunde Lawal anyday!

Re: Who Is The Capped Super Eagles Player Ever? by Jackal(m): 2:46pm On Sep 20, 2006
@ Akola,
Are u sure its Muda Lawal?
What about Stephen Keshi?
Re: Who Is The Capped Super Eagles Player Ever? by kitaun(m): 7:37pm On Sep 20, 2006
@Jackal

Stephen Keshi for where? far from it cool
Re: Who Is The Capped Super Eagles Player Ever? by timmynaija(m): 3:55pm On Oct 15, 2010
Nwankwo Kanu is same as Mudashiru "Muda" Lawal ------86 caps and if he play one more time he will be the highest cap in Nigerian football history.

The argument will continue without certified statistic. Thanks to NFF
Re: Who Is The Capped Super Eagles Player Ever? by timmynaija(m): 11:15am On Oct 17, 2010
The answer is there on NFF wiki page on the web which is constantly updated.
The fact still remains that some people don't use the knowledge and power of the web to
Search answers but they rather argue without facts instead.
I don't know lately if Kanu played any game for Nigeria and if had done that it means he is the highest cap.

This means that he played at least 1more game at the world cup and that clearly made him the most capped player over Late Mudashiru Lawal.

Kanu Nwankwo deserves it.

Thanks for the info bro.

Amodu still remains the most performed local coach till date! (confirmed) tongue tongue tongue tongue
Re: Who Is The Capped Super Eagles Player Ever? by timmynaija(m): 1:29pm On Oct 18, 2010
Mudashiru lawal is 86 caps and not 90
Kanu already had 86 caps before the world cup.
Including friendly games before the world cup
And the world cup games already put kanu ahead of muda lawal.
I took this question to some top football players who are all ex eagles player and same answers I got.

Even with the stats, you are still asking questions? don't you know the meaning of performance? in the world of coaching, result speaks.
