I see teslim balogun.

Teslim Balogun play in the national team as far back as 1949... Etim Henshaw was the captain of that team. Teslim was the likes of JJ Okocha of that time, though the team didn't achieve much.

It was during the Era of Christian Chukwu 1951 that our national team won their first truphy which was African Nations cup 3 - 0 against Algeria.

That is history.

Op lie kii u there. We’re not all gullible. As at 1962, no footballer puts on this kind of short, rather they put on a plain-pant which is very shorter than this
